FROM THE COMMANDER -Becky Stormont
For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting, we approved five new members and we would like to welcome them to our club. The election is in May and we will be having 2nd nominations at our April Membership meetings. Date and time of the election will be posted after the April nominations.
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.
I have been advised by Bob Young with Young Independent Consultants, there will be no May ballot for our area so our Sunday Liquor license will have to wait until November to be put on the ballot. They will be going door to door asking people to get out and vote and handing out pamphlets. They still have a lot of work to do to get us the vote we need prior to the November election. We need everyone to get out and vote if you live in our precinct and if you know someone else, please let them know we would appreciate their vote as well. The AMVETS is holding another raffle for $10 per ticket, we will sell 200 tickets and will pay out $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. We will be holding other raffles to try and help with the cost of the Sunday liquor license.
Hot Dog Wednesday is doing great and 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! 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, April 9, 2019 around 7:00PM. I urge everyone to attend our meetings so you will know what is going on.
Thank you, Becky Stormont Commander AMVETS Post 1928
From the 1st Vice – Jim Puffenbarger
Hope everyone had a nice St. Patrick’s Day. Would like to welcome all of our new members we received in this month. Please make them welcome. We are working on moving bar bingo to a different night, so if you have any suggestions, please come to the next meeting and let us know.
Also, if you have any suggestions or complaints please bring to the meeting also. We hope you will take advantage of the meetings to find out what going on in the club. We need all the members to get involved. Have a Great Spring! Jim

Spring is finally here!
I want to thank everyone for your continued support and welcoming of the new staff and schedule changes over the past few months.
We are going to try entertainment of Friday night’s again. Our goal is to have karaoke every other Friday and then a band or vocalist on the alternating Fridays. If you would like to recommend anyone please let us know and we will look into bringing them in. Kristal
KITCHEN NEWS -Tammy Slater, Manager
Happy Spring!!! Firstly, I would like to Congratulate Chrissy Hall and Shannon Stout for their participation of the Meatloaf Cook-off. They were both very delicious and hard to decide the best, and all the judges must have felt the same way because it was a Tie. I really wish some more of our members got involved in this cook off, however, those who did not make it out really missed out.
This month we are going to have a Dinner Plate Special on Good Friday, April 19th, with Shrimp Alfredo with Angel hair pasta, small salad and roll, for $6.50 a plate. This will be served beginning at 5PM. Until gone. And it will be delicious, so make sure you get here and have a plate.
The cold cut subs are still being offered throughout the week, If there is something else you’d like to have other than a cold cut sub, please give me some ideas, I will do my best to have it for you. Have a great month everyone!!!! Tammy
