I want to start this message with a reminder of how much I appreciate our members. Our Post has been very busy and we were able to tell SAME National about all these activities. If we did not have support from you, our members, none of this would be possible.

As summer is nearing an end, I am looking forward to all the fall activities. We have the upcoming annual meeting this month at Fort Knox; the Golf Scramble in September at Quail Chase Golf Club in Louisville; and the Joint Engineering and Training Symposium (JETS) in November. We are in need of assistance at these events so invite a friend or associate to be involved in the Kentuckiana Post.

Our STEM committee has many new opportunities to discuss with the board in the upcoming meeting, one of which is the Future City program (http://futurecity.org/register). We as a Post will keep everyone apprised of these opportunities to mentor young people in your communities. It is a great opportunity for you and your company to be involved.

The Post is planning to support upcoming Wounded Warrior and active service member activities which include 5K runs, youth hunting events, and various other opportunities. Look for ways to help in your local communities. Be sure to let the Post know of these opportunities.

In closing, I sincerely hope your fall is as enjoyable as I am hoping your summer family time was. It is time for a new season, fresh start and hoping to see you all at the upcoming meetings and events.

Ms. Lee Carolan
Post President, KP-SAME
