Welcome to POST 852

Serving Temecula and Murrieta Valley, California


Good morning Comrades:

It is a New Year and with it a bunch of upcoming events. To start with, on January 26th will be the inaugural Post 852 Shoot Off!! This event is meant as a kick-off/fundraiser for our new youth program which is an Air Rigle Shooting Team!1 The Shoot-Off is open to people of all ages and walks of life so don't be shy - come out and test out your marksmanship... Do you still have it? Did you EVER have it?

This week is our General Membership Meeting. It will be held on Thursday, January 17, 2019 at The Moose Lodge. The most important item on the agenda will be the discussion of formalizing our status at The Moose Lodge and entering into a formal agreement with the owner of the property giving Post 852 its first actual home and a physical location to call Post 852.

Further out in the year is our largest annual event and fund raising opportunity - the 7th Annual SGT Clinton K. Ruiz Memorial Golf Tournament. This year the event is being held at The Journey at Pechanga. Early Bird registration is $200 which includes golf, goody bag, lunch & dinner. This price is good until February 15th, after which time the price goes up to $225.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday!!
