Commander Notes

Our first Summer Barbecue was a great success, the food was outstanding. I hope you will join us July 13th from 2:00-6:00 for our next BBQ Fundraiser. The menu will be pulled pork sandwiches, Jenny’s homemade coleslaw, sliced grilled potatoes and fresh fruit cup for a $10.00 donation. Our pavilion will be open for horseshoes and cornhole and we will have music also weather permitting.

We have karaoke every Saturday at 7:30 going until 11:30.

We are continuing our weekly 50/50 drawing the money we make will go towards building improvements which our biggest expense is our parking lot. We draw the winner at 2:00 on Sundays. You can also go on our website and donate money to our parking lot fundraiser.

July 27th our post is having a Spaghetti Dinner with Salad and Roll for $10.00 a plate. There will be a cash bar, baskets, 50/50 raffle and lottery tree. You can come at 5:30 to check out the baskets and raffles. Dinner is served at 6:00 pm. RSVP by July 14th which is required for dinner only. There is a flyer with all of the info posted at the club.

There will be no Queen of Hearts this July 3rd, see you next week. I hope everyone has a safe 4th of July weekend.

August 22nd is our next Rubber Ducks game at Canal Park and you can purchase tickets from the flyer posted at the club or go on the web site. If you purchase tickets and the game is rained out you can attend another game with those tickets. Every ticket sold our club gets back some money from these tickets.

We have a lot of great things happening in the near future so I hope you will help us with these upcoming events.

Auxiliary Notes

The new year for the VFW and Auxiliary begins July 1, 2019. We wrapped up this year in high spirits and are encouraged by all that we accomplished. We are looking forward to all that this year has in store for us.

At the June meeting, we draped our charter in remembrance of Past National President Rosemary Mazer. Our condolences to her family.

We are always looking for new members. If you know of anyone who is a relative of any military veteran who has served in an overseas campaign, please invite them to join. The applications are always available in the Canteen and the fee is only $35 for the first year (for annual members).

We are always looking for ways to be more involved in the local community. We will continue to do several projects, such as Bingo at Kent Ridge, but we would love suggestions for more events.

The next Auxiliary meeting is Monday, July 15, 2019, at 7:00pm in the Post Hall. We invite all Auxiliary members to attend.
