  1. HI Brenda. Very nice Blog! I was about to begin gathering info. for a Post 64 article on Memorial Day in the Ahwatukee Foothills news, as I have been working Paul Mariniak in the past to get him info. on the Post. At our Officers’ meeting this past Wed, Pete mentioned you would like to become our PIO, which is wonderful. Would you like begin by working with me on the article? I have few ideas that I will share with you. Perhaps we can meet or discuss a process to get the article going and ready for 5/22 edition.
