AMVETS Post 1928 of Columbus Ohio

November 2019


Greetings Members,

The summer has winded down and now comes the holiday seasons.

November 2nd is Member Appreciation Day, which starts at 2:00PM. We have Veterans Day the 11th and AMVETS will also provide Thanksgiving dinner from 2:00PM to 5:00PM.

Frank will be doing wiener Wednesday again. Don’t forget we have the $5 board on Monday, Tuesday we have the 25 cent board, Wednesday the dollar board and Thursday Queen of Hearts.

The members meeting is the second Tuesday of the month, I urge all members to attend.

I would like to thank the Ladies Auxiliary for a great Halloween party for the kid’s!

God bless everyone.  Tim Blevins, Commander Post 1928

From the Past Commander – Becky Stormont

Nancy Puffenbarger and I are still handling all AMVETS and Social members’ dues until a 1st Vice is appointed. The new cards are in and if you have paid your dues your new card will be put in the AMVETS box behind the bar. Your key fob or card will be updated as soon as we can get this done, normally within a few days of you paying your dues.

Social Members: We have the final count on social members, and we have 10 social members who have not renewed this year, which was due in August. So at this time we have 10 open slots, which we will fill on a first come, first serve basis. If you were a social member last year and you want to continue your membership without renewing the paperwork, I suggest you pay your dues. We will be raising the cost of the membership for all social members next year to $45.

We have changed the $5 board numbers; we took off the people who have not paid in the last two years and all deceased members. So, your number has changed. We counted all the chips and every number is in the basket.

Please remember November 5, we will have our liquor license on the ballot, if you live in our precinct and you are a registered voter, we need your vote. If you know someone else who lives in out precinct, we would appreciate his or her vote also.  Becky

From the Honor Guard – Terry Troesch

Greetings fellow members of Post 1928 from the Honor Guard,

We have had some fall like weather, which brings in the members to our post to watch their teams play.

With the approach of fall we are entering into the holiday season. It gives us a chance to reflect on our loved ones that are no longer with us. Certainly, a very emotional time to reflect upon.

As we’ve asked previously if you or someone you know, would care to join our ranks and the opportunity to help honor the fallen, please contact one of our Honor Guard members.

Our next ceremony will be here at the post on November 11th at 19:00 to recognize Veterans Day. If you could attend and help celebrate our day. It would be appreciated.

Next Honor Guard meeting will be November 14th @ 18:30.

God Bless our great country.  Terry

Canteen News -Kristal Scott, Manager

Please assist me in welcoming April and Courtney to the team.

As a reminder we will be having customer appreciation day Saturday November 2nd, 2019 starting at 2:00 pm. We will be having food, door prizes and drink specials.

The pull tab machine is now installed and operable. If you play and get a winning ticket turn it in to the bartenders just as you would the pull tabs behind the bar.

If you have any questions or concerns with the canteen, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m available to address issues at any time. All of the bartenders and officers are able to get my number to you. Again, THANK YOU for your continued support.  Kristal
