AMVETS Post 1928 of Columbus Ohio

February 2020


Hello everyone, February is here and when you think of February you think of Valentine’s Day, we will be offering a T-bone steak dinner, salad, baked potato and desert for just $10 dollars a person on February 14 starting at 6 PM. Let’s see faces at the members meeting every second Tuesday of the month. We have a lot of new entertainment scheduled, watch for flyers at the post and come out and
enjoy it. The winter conference is at the Double Tree off of 161 on February 14-16th. Let’s not forget our fallen Amvets, stay warm and thank you for your continuous support of AMVETS Post 1928. Tim Blevins, Commander Post 1928

From the Past Commander – Becky Stormont

As acting 1st Vice would like to welcome the following new members that were voted in during out 1/14/2020 meeting: Mr. Gerald Bowman and Mr. Douglas McKnight, I would like to welcome them to the club.

Social Members: We have a couple of social membership slots still open. Once these membership slots are filled, we will not be able to accept any other social members. This means if you want to come in the club more than 3 times and you are not a Honorable discharged veteran you will have to become a member via either Ladies Auxiliary or Sons.

We will be raising the cost of the Social membership to $45.00 next year.

We have Weiner Wednesday compliments of Frank and Liz Matthews, please remember donations are appreciated and it helps to keep this going. Like to give a special shout out to Rick and Erick for playing the jukebox all day on Wednesday to help entertain all the members in the club. They do a great job and you never hear the same song twice.

Per Chrissy who heads up our Nascar races, the first race is on Sunday, February 16, 2020 and it is in Daytona at 2:30, we will be having a kickoff party to start the Nascar Season off.

Chrissy will be behind the bar for the kickoff party. Doors open at 11:00 come out and help us kick the season off with a big bang. Caution-Caution!!! Thank you, Becky
