Commander Oliva Thank You note 2022

Commander Oliva - 7/14/2022

Thanks for a great Golf Tournament


     As Tewksbury's VFW Post 8164 Commander I would like to thank everyone who helped make our 3rd annual golf tournament a huge success. 

     To all the volunteers who helped start this event a year ago, please accept my sincere thanks for all you did.  I want to single out John Fernandez, who was instrumental organizing our 3rd annual event on the golf course. Thank you to all our sponsors and donors.  Without them and golfers who participated and supported, this VFW Post 8164 event would not have been such a success.

     I want to thank Atkinson Resort and Country Club for hosting our 3rd annual event for the second year in a row.  Its staff went above and beyond to ensure the success of this tournament.

   This year our proceeds will benefit SMGA and Clear Path for Veterans of New England.  Two of the finest veteran groups who have helped many of our hero's

    I would encourage all participants to visit our webpage in order to view photos from the tournament. From the Home page, click on dropdown arrow on "About” tab, then click on "Gallery”. On the Gallery Categories, click on "Golf Tournament 2022”. Our website link is as follows: . We also have a Facebook page, just search @VFWPOST8164 on Facebook to find and please join. We update these online links for information on the post activities as well as upcoming event, such as the Golf Tournament. 

     In closing, I can't thank you enough for joining us.  I've heard so many positive comments from you golfers and the best to me was I got no complaints.  Enjoy the rest of the summer.  Look forward to seeing you again next year.  Stay Safe, Stay Healthy!

Vinnie Oliva,
