Sunday, Feb 11, 10AM: Monthly meeting at Cong Etz Chaim
In what is becoming an annual event, members of Post 54 and 9th grade students from Cong. Etz Chaim in Lombard, Illinois, visited Oak Ridge Jewish Cemetery on Sunday, November 19, 2017, to remove American flags and clean headstones of Jewish veterans buried there. Due to inclement weather the original visit to place the flags prior to Veterans Day was postponed and changed to removing the flags. Students, teachers, and Post 54 members find this event a very satisfying and educational experience. One that the temple’s educator says will continue in the future.
The Chicago Wolves, a American Hockey League team, hosted a veterans evening on November 20, 2017 to honor veterans and help establish a National Desert Storm War Memorial. In attendance were several members of Post 54 and other veterans, and Bernadette Wawczak, Case Manager/Veteran Service Office of the Veterans
Assistance Commission of DuPage County. Two Post 54 members, Steve Fixler and Post Commander Bruce Mayor were called to the ice between the 2nd and 3rd periods to shoot goals. Fun was had by all and raised money for a deserved memorial.
