Newsletter Nov 2018

From the Commander

When you get this newsletter we will be close to celbrating Veterans Day and I hope everyone that is able will come to the 1100 ceremony at Broad Blvd. A Navy Veteran will be speaking. The post will also be having a luncheon following the ceremony which will be from 1200 to 1500. The post is serving homemade sausage and sauerkraut. Side dishes would be appreciated.

2019 is fast approaching so it’s time to renew your membership for next year. Dues need to be paid prior to January 1st.

Thanksgiving the post will be serving fresh turkey cooked by Chef Brent Valentine and we are requesting everyone bring a side dish to share. Dinner will be from 1300 to 1800.

The next District 8 meeting will be held December 2nd at 1000 Aurora Post 2629.

Our dining hall floor will be replaced soon. One of our members is graciously donating the funds for 100% of the materials. I am asking for anyone who is able to help withe installation to please contact any of our officers. Once we figure out a date to get started we well make this happen.

Auxiliary

Bingo!! Another successful evening at Kentridge. Thanks to all who joined us. The residents enjoyed our evening.

We had originally scheduled our Family Freedom Festival for November 10. Because of late notice, it was difficult to get all to participate, so we will reschedule for early next year.

Cancer pins are now available as well as key chains. See Joyce if you are interested in purchasing. Pins are $2 and key chains are $3.

Pleas welcome new members Dorothy Hoffman and Dorothy Paine

Our last lottery board winner was Bobby Adams. Congratulations. Hope you were a big winner.

Our next meeting is scheduled for November 19th at 7pm.

Canteen

After it gets dark in the evening, at the bartender’s discretion, the doors are going to be locked for the safety for the bartender and our customers. The buzzer isn’t working at this time. So, only the barmaid will let those in, unless someone sitting at the bar knows who they are. We will get teh buzzer fixed as soon as we can. Please, everyone have patience.

I know we have a lot of our bar stools broken and we will get these either fixed or replaced.
