As Commander, I want to thank everyone for a great July 2016. We have had a wonderful turn out for our new meals that have been added and everything else too.

The AMVETS started a “Once A Month Dinner” on Saturday night. The attendance was really unexpected with over 35 people in July. Sara Ri'chard did most of the cooking, Kevin Butwill ran plates and cleaned tables, Robin Tradeau ran the 50/50 & cleaned. Cheri Fountaine was washing dishes & cleaned, Joe Ri'chard collected & kept track of all the cost for the dinners, Bill Lawyer brought in cake that Wendy made. “The Old Guyz” played music for tips and will do it again in August. They have added more 50-60 SONGS.

Peggy Milnes has started THURSDAY’S TACO’S back up again and it is doing GREAT. She puts her heart into getting everything prepared and served. Let’s support her in her endeavors please.

Peggy will start up the Football Party (Like previous years) on the last Sunday of Sept 11 2016. Donations to help off-set the cost of food would be appreciated. The Football Party has been a good thing for everyone, let’s keep it going.

The Eboard is asking for someone to take-on the duties of the ADJUTANT. Mostly it will be to: take Regular meeting minutes, organize them and retype and place them in our ring binder book in the office. Also, making the calendar is the other task. This calendar is the one that is set out for ALL our members to read. We use “Print Shop” now, it is easy with “cut & paste” SEE ME!

I am sooooooo looking forward to the 3rd Saturday of August 2016 for the Pot Roast dinner, roasted Potatoes and Veggie Medley.                           Sign Up Sheet

July 2016 Canteen work is ongoing with a new compressor for one beer cooler, Rope Lights under the bar and repair of the wash sink behind the bar. The tile FLOORS were stripped, cleaned and re-waxed too.
