Additionally, Post 828 was awarded first place in the Post History and Scrapbook Contest (Narrative).
“I was extremely proud to bring home the first-place plaque for our Post Narrative History which will be sent on for national competition,” said Post Commander Burrell Parmer. “I felt great each time Post 828’s name was called to the dais to collect the awards.”
According to Parmer, he will join TEXALPA so that Post 828 can be recognized for the great work they do with their website and social media.
