Hello everyone, it’s hard to believe we are well into the summer season. The Post is doing great this summer with lots of new folks stopping by and becoming members. For those of you that haven’t been in lately there has been a major change to our bar area. The Auxiliary room has been removed and a dance floor added. During chicken dinners the added space allows us to seat an additional 40 people. Since it has become standard for us to have a band on fish nights, the seating is removed and we have a great dance floor. We broke it in during July with fun had by all. A great success for the Post.
A special note, the Traffords, Jim and Mary, will be holding their 50th Wedding Anniversary at our Post on August 21 from 1-6 p.m. It is open to all so stop by and say hello. They have become regular patrons and everybody enjoys their company.
September 11 will be the Legion Picnic which will begin at noon. We will provide the meat. We have games planned along with raffles. All the units will have a 2017 membership drive in place to sign up new folks and renew current memberships. So bring a dish to pass and have a great day with us.
Everyone enjoy the rest of the summer and I hope to see you at the Post. As always, keep our uniformed military in your thoughts. They are the best of us all.
Greetings! We have our annual membership drive coming up on September 11. Everyone come out and renew your membership from 12-4, and enjoy a meal on us. Be sure to bring any family or friends that are eligible to join, as we always like to welcome new members.
I am proud to say that we have recently received a commendation from the state detachment for being the first squadron to reach our membership goal for 2015-2016. Hopefully we can continue to receive this in the future.
Be sure to come out and show your support for a great cause and enjoy an excellent dinner at our 2nd Friday Steak Fry. We’ve been having good turnouts, but the more the merrier.
Shirley Helmuth, President
