Newsletter April 2023


Our Lent Fish Fry’s are going well this year. I can’t believe that our last one is on April
7 th ! We have received a lot of comments of how great everything tastes, so if you
haven’t come out you don’t want to miss our last one for the year. We serve dinner from
5:00 to 7:30 on Friday April 7 th .

Our Euchre Tournaments are also coming to a close at the end of the month. Dates are
April 2nd, 16th and the 30th.

We don’t normally post events that are happening in the back hall but this one is
special. Warriors Journey Home is doing a fundraiser. They are doing a Kentucky Derby
party. So this is sort of like a Night at the Races event and from what I understand it will
culminate with the actual Kentucky Derby. The tickets are $25.00 a person. It will be a
catered event from Mission BBQ and will have plenty of raffles. This is a great
organization for Post 9/11 veterans!

Also, this is our election month so if any Regular Member (Veteran that served overseas
on foreign soil/water/air space would like to be nominated for a position as an officer
you need to attend this month’s meeting on the 27th at 7:00.
