FROM THE COMMANDER -Becky Stormont
For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting, the election is May 19, 2019 polls will be open from 1PM to 4PM so please come out to vote and support the club. The elected officers will be sworn in and take office on July 1, 2019. We have 3 offices open for the election and we need to get them filled, they are as follows: 1st Vice, 3rd Vice and Adjutant. If you’re interested, please get involved. The club needs you! The honor guard will pay tribute to the veterans who have fallen at 1:00PM at the club.
I would like to ask everyone to please bring all AMVETS concerns and discussions to the meetings and not discuss at the canteen. The canteen needs to be free from all negativity and it’s a place that is supposed to be used for all members to get together and have a good time.
The AMVETS second raffle for $10 per ticket is under way, we have some tickets left and would like to get them all sold. The pay outs are: $500, $200 and 3- $100.00 winners, you will not have to be there to win and you do not have to be a member to play, once again we are looking for everyone’s support. The bartenders have the raffle tickets. Once all tickets are sold, we will be drawing the winners, date and time will be posted in the club. We will be holding other raffles to try and help with the cost of the Sunday liquor license.
Hot Dog Wednesday is doing great. Everyone is enjoying! Frank has hot dogs and sausages with all the trimmings all day until they are gone. Donations are welcomed. Come out and enjoy. We would also like to especially thank Eric and Rick for playing all the great music all day long during Hot Dog Wednesday.
On Thursday nights we have Queen of Hearts at 7PM. The pot is growing!
The kitchen is opened every Friday and Saturday night from 4-10PM. We are serving the following menu: pizza, subs, wings, hamburgers, fish sandwiches, salads and some appetizers. The menus with prices are at the bar and on the tables. Come in and try us out, I think you will be pleased, the food is very good.
Hope to see you all at our next membership meeting, which is Tuesday, May 14, 2019 around 7PM. I urge everyone to attend our meetings so you will know what is going on.
Thank you, Becky Stormont Commander AMVETS Post 1928
