At the VFW meeting of March 4, Senior Vice Tony Rizzutto was given a Certificate of Appreciation to present to Scott Williams, a member of the U.S.S. Oregon Detachment #470 of the Marine Corps League. Tony is the current Commandant of the detachment (and has been for 12 years). The certificate was presented to Scott on March 25. Post member Steve Moody was also present as he is a member of the detachment.
In October, 2012 Scott contacted Tony to say he owns a Christmas tree farm and would like to sell Noble Fir trees to the post at minimum cost. Tony informed Post members of this opportunity for a fund raiser. Ted Gilbo, Bob Gustafson and Joe Gaimino provided funds to purchase 50 trees. Through their efforts and other Post volunteers, they sold all 50 trees by December. This provided much needed funds to the Post General Fund. Scott intends to make the same offer for 2013.
