COVID-19 Information
Updated 04/01/20 2:00 PM EDT

On April 1st Governor DeSantis issued a "stay-at-home" order for the state of Florida. This Executive Order, effective Friday, April 3rd, responds to the extended guidelines presented by the White House. On March 31st President Trump and the Coronavirus Task Force presented 30-Days to Control the Spread, guidelines which will be in effect until April 30th. These actions may result in a longer period that our Post is closed.

Post 10148 is currently closed in compliance with direction from the VFW Department of Florida State Commander. The closing of our Post was directed by the State Commander in response to the March 17th Executive Order from the Governor.

Post Elections
Nominations for Post leadership positions usually open each year at the March meeting with the elections occurring at the April meeting. Nominations and elections are held each year for Post Commander, Senior Vice Commander, Junior Vice Commander, Quartermaster, Chaplain, and a 3-Year Trustee. Before we conduct elections for the 2020-2021 year, our Post first needs to fill vacancies brought on by recent resignations. These vacancies once filled will cover the remaining three months of the 2019-2020 year.

At the Post meeting on March 18th, we were informed that the COVID-19 pandemic may impact the timeline for the 2020-2021 nominations and elections. Updates will be posted as they become available.

The best way to help shape the new direction of our Post is to attend meetings, speak up, and vote. Increased member involvement is crucial to our Post's success. If you miss a meeting, you can keep up by reading the Key Takeaway summaries for each monthly meeting.

Beach Cleanup 2020
About 25 cadets from the CBHS Army JROTC unit along with a dozen Post, Auxiliary, and community members conducted Beach Cleanup 2020 on Saturday, February 29th. These fine young cadets gave up part of their day to participate in this important community service effort. Cocoa Beach Vice Mayor Mike Miller kicked-off the event with some excellent words of encouragement and appreciation for the cadets who then headed down to the beach for a two-mile trek on a clear and cool morning. Once off the beach, the cadets and other volunteers enjoyed lunch on the deck of VFW Post 10148.

The Post would like to thank Keep Brevard Beautiful for providing the cleanup gear. Also, the Post appreciates the local organizations that supported the event: Beach Eatz, Contractors Window & Door, Dave's Tires, Fat Cat Printing, Jazzy's Mainely Lobster, Jet Press, Knights of Columbus Council 4826, Pro-Tech Roofing, Subway, and Sysco.
