Bugle August – September 2016 Page 1
A Message from The Commander’s Desk
Greetings and Salutations!!!
Finally some monsoon type weather to cool things off!
The Post is doing pretty good, but could of course be doing better. We need the membership to come in and enjoy your Post again, things are quite different.
Bar Bingo is doing well, the members are enjoying it and the players are having fun, so it’s quite different from regular Bingo. In regard to regular Bingo you may have heard that Kathleen has left us, if anyone is interested in what happened, please come talk to me.
In a more positive light the latest Raffles went well. Now the Riders along with the Post is raffling a Motorcycle for $20 per ticket. The winner will have the option of the Motorcycle or $5,000 – Cash after all the tickets are sold.
By the way the Post has new Officers pretty much across the board, check the listing on the back of this edition of the Bugle. I have great expectations for all the families within the Post. The Sons have started doing Breakfast on the 1st Sunday from 8-10 a.m. and a steak dinner on the 3rd Saturday from 5-7 p.m. every month, the response has been fantastic, come early or take your chances.
The Ladies Auxiliary will be starting Taco Tuesdays on the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays from 3-6 p.m. every month starting in August.
The E-Committee has decided that the Post needs to eliminate unnecessary costs and expenses, so instead of cancelling regular Bingo, because it has been running at a loss for quite some time, we are going to revamp it-fix it. Hopefully to restart it by the end of August. Notices will be posted at the Post or you can call the Post phone. Also in that light we have made some changes with the kitchen operation. There will also be microwavable foods available at the bar.
Finally, it is after the Convention so it’s time for all members to renew soon so you can get the “Early Bird”, cut off for the Early Bird will be October 31st and the Dinner will be scheduled for Saturday November 19th.
As a reminder this will be our last mailing of the “Bugle”. We have our new web site up and running and the Bugle will be on there. We will have some copies available at the Post.
For The Good of the Legion,
Commander Post #25
