On July 1, 1946, the Past Commanders of the First District of the Department of California, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, associated themselves into a what is known as the Past Commanders Club.
Any Past Commander of a Post, County Council, District or Department of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is eligible to become a member of this organization if they are a member in good standing of the VFW. Membership dues in the Past Commander Club are $15.00. Dues expire the 31st of December each year. It is a non-profit club instituted for rendering service, social, civic and educational to the membership of the First District V.F.W. and does not contemplate the distribution of gains, profits, and dividends to the members thereof.
Any Past Commander holding membership in "Number One” is entitled to all privileges.
The club holds regular business meetings on the "Third Monday” of the first month of each quarter. Each year at the April quarterly meeting the election of the President, Secretary, Treasurer and Chaplain take place.
Dinner precedes each of the meetings. In July of each year, the Past Commander Club holds a picnic.
