If you are on the island and available to help, please respond to this email, and, Commander Taylor will coordinate our efforts.. Our chapter does receive recognition for each volunteer, and, your participation helps the our post.
Last year, the Sons manned the streets around 30th and First in a team effort. You can join at this location, or, if you choose to man a street near your home, let us know
