From the Commander – Becky Stormont Commander
For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting, I appointed a Provost Marshall who will hold a seat on the Board of Trustees and the Executive Board. Please welcome Terry Troesch. He was an officer a few years back and has always remained a part of our color guard. I have accepted the resignation of Trustee Les Dials. I would like to thank him for his time and effort as an officer and helping out the club. We approved the AMVETS standing rules and the Canteen standing rules at our last meeting. The Canteen rules will be posted throughout the club for your view.
Sunday December 2nd will be Toys for Tots Appreciation Day. We will be collecting donations (money and toys) in boxes at the club for the Marines. We will be having food, touchdown beers, tee shirt raffles, pins, wristbands and more. This will help the kids out who may not have a Christmas or a toy to open on Christmas day. The marines will be picking up everything we have collected on Monday, December 10th. The clubs Christmas Party will be Friday, December 14th starting at 6:00PM. We will have finger food, entertainment, and a $20 limit gift exchange. Please sign up at the club if you wish to participate in the gift exchange. It should be a lot of fun.
The Thanksgiving Day meal was a success. I would like to thank everyone who came out and helped cook, set up and tear down, (Doug Stormont, Nancy, Jim, John Puffenbarger, Jim Pearce and Billy Loftus). The leftover food, which was a lot, was taken to a women and family shelter off of Mound St. and they were very thankful. I would like to say thank you to Lori (bartender) for getting this done for us.
Hot Dog Wednesday is doing great. Frank has hot dogs and sausages with all the trimmings all day until they are gone. Donations are welcomed, come out and enjoy. On Thursday night we have euchre back again, but not a big turnout. If you enjoy playing come out, we start at 7:00 right after the Queen of Hearts drawing. The kitchen is open every Friday and Saturday night from 4-10PM. The food is really good, please come in and try it out! The kitchen is entertaining the possibility of a dinner plate special. Tammy needs your feedback.
Hope to see you all at our next Membership Meeting, Tuesday, December 11th 7PM. I urge everyone to attend our meetings so you will know what is going on. We would like to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thank you, Becky Stormont Commander AMVETS Post 1928

Hello all, Wanted to thank you again for your continued support for our AMVETS Kitchen!
We want to provide a special dinner plate, this month. I am going to put out a form so you can let us know what you would like to have. These dinners will be provided on Friday bar bingo nights to see how well it will do. Looking forward to hearing from you.
We have a new cook his name is Jacob, he is a young Veteran. I’m looking forward to get him trained and I am asking for your patience until he gets it all under his belt.
Thank you again for your continued support, I want to continue to please your palate.
