Happy 92nd Birthday to Comrade Bill Davidson!
Members of Chalfont Post 3258 participate in a Drive-by Birthday Party for Bill Davidson at his home. Due to COVID-19 restrictions prohibiting large gatherings, members of Post 3258 gathered in their cars in a nearby park and paraded in front of Bill and Mary's house to wish him a happy birthday!

Chalfont VFW Post 3258 wins National Membership Challenge and a trip to the VFW National Legislative Conference in Washington D.C.
On March 2nd 2020, Post Commander John Otte and Post Judge Advocate Joe Mendez accept a Certificate of Appreciation from VFW National Commander-in-Chief William "Doc" Schmitz for outstanding efforts in recruiting new members into the post. Post 3258 received an invitation to the National Legislative Conference in Washington D.C. for an opportunity to meet with federal legislatures about the VFW's 2020 top priorities and focus.
The annual event titled "Storm the Hill" was jam-packed with National Council of Administration meetings and a session whereby the National Commander-In-Chief testified before a congressional panel to lobby them on the VFW's mission both now and in the future.
Commander Otte also received a stipend check in the amount of $1,000.00 to cover the costs of the trip. Commander Otte strongly believed that this money belonged to the post and donated that money into the post treasury. Our post continues to lead the way in membership and other key areas to fulfill our 120-Year mission of taking care of veterans. Congratulations to the post for winning this high national honor.
