AMVETS Post 1928 of Columbus Ohio

June 2019


The Election was held on May 19, 2019 and we still have these offices open: 1st Vice, 3rd Vice and Adjutant. If you’re interested, please get involved. The club needs you! The elected officers will be sworn in and take office on July 1st, 2019.

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 2nd raffle for $10 per ticket is still under way, I believe we have about 20 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.

On Thursday nights we have Queen of Hearts at 7:00. The pot is growing.
Hope to see you all at our next Membership Meeting, which is Tuesday, May 14, 2019 around 7:00 pm. I urge everyone to attend our meetings so you will know what is going on.

I would like to take this opportunity and thank each and every one of you for making my job as your Commander a rememberable experience. A lot of things we have done in the club could have not been done without everyone working together. Our club continues to grow and it’s all because of all of you staying positive, accepting change and doing whatever you can do to help out. “I salute you!”

Thank you, Becky Stormont Commander AMVETS Post 1928

CANTEEN NEWS -Kristal Scott, Manager

We, unfortunately, had to announce the temporary closing of the kitchen effective June 1st, 2019 due to lack of sales. We want to thank our kitchen staff for their continued efforts and hope that we can reopen again in the near future and thank you to all of the customers that supported the kitchen when it was open.

We will be continuing Friday night karaoke/entertainment. We are still open to recommendations if you know of any performers that might be interested.

I would like to personally thank everyone who has stepped up to lend a hand and help around the club. It is very much appreciated.


KITCHEN NEWS -Tammy Slater, Manager

Hello all!!! To those of you who do not know, we unfortunately, effective May 31st, have had to close our Kitchen due to not having enough sales to cover product purchases and staff. I wanted to give a huge thank you to all that supported our Kitchen. We are hoping in the future that we can give it another try. Until then, we will continue with the cook-offs, potlucks, and special dinners occasionally.
Again, Thank you all for all of your support!!!


Honor Guard -Terry Troesch


First and foremost, I would like to welcome the new officers. The tasks that lie ahead for our post and the members can be a daunting. Thank you one and all for your time.

I would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation to you as a fellow veteran. If you know of someone, or you yourself would consider joining the Honor Guard, we are in need of members. There is great satisfaction in honoring a fellow fallen veteran, someone you may have known for years, or someone whom you may have never met at all. Performing at one of these ceremonies, whether it be a firing here at our post, at a cemetery, funeral home for a casket watch, or performing a flag folding ceremony, is significant and is very meaningful to those who are experiencing difficult times. The satisfaction and sense of honor you get from performing at these ceremonies is indescribable. If you know of someone who might be interested, please contact Dave Fell, I know all of you know Dave!! Meeting dates are always posted in the newsletter and we welcome you to attend to learn more. Most respectfully, Terry
