September 2018

From the Commander – Becky Stormont Commander

For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting- we have approved the membership of 7 new members. We approved the patching of holes in the west parking lot, as we do not own that lot and the patching of holes, sealing and stripping of the east parking lot. We approved the change of time for the Monday Night $5 board drawing from 8:00PM to 7:00PM, this will start the first week in October. We also approved the startup of a quarter board and the queen of hearts. We are looking into getting credit cards also. So if you are like me and never have any cash, you will not have to stop at bank or an ATM. We have hired a new Canteen Manager and Assistant Manager. The new Manager is Kristal Scott and her assistant is Stephanie Trago. They are doing a wonderful job getting our club back on track. Please make them feel welcome!

The Ladies Auxiliary held a special meeting on Sunday, August 26, 2018, to elect new officers and to change the date and time of their meeting’s. Without this meeting they were in jeopardy of losing their charter. I am pleased to say they have all the offices filed and the meeting day and time has been changed to 2nd Sunday of the month at 5:00PM. First meeting is September 9, 2018.

We have bingo on Friday nights starting at 6:00PM, and every Saturday we have karaoke starting at 7:00PM. Wednesday night’s we have the dollar board drawing and on Monday evening’s we have the $5 board drawing. Every Sunday is NASCAR Sunday. If there is no race on Sunday, Frank Matthews has brought back his old tapes and we still enjoy Caution-Caution on Sunday’s. As we come back into football season, we will be having raffles, 50-50 and rapid fire on most Saturday’s. So come out and get involved. Hot Dog Wednesday is doing great! Frank has hot dogs with all the trimmings all day until they are gone. Donations are welcomed. We have brought back Tammy Slater into the kitchen on Saturday nights; she will be our working kitchen manager. She has added some new items to the menu, and she is working on adding more items to the menu. Kitchen is opened every Friday and Saturday night from 4-10PM. We are serving the following menu: pizza, subs, wings, salads, some appetizers. I think you will be pleased, the food is very good!

Hope to see you all at our next Membership Meeting, which is Tuesday, September 11th 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

Canteen New–Kristal Scott, Manager

Hello, my name is Kristal Scott, I would like to introduce myself as I am your new Canteen Manager. I am looking forward to meeting all of you and open to all new ideas so if you have any you can just leave me a note with the bartender.
I have many new ideas, which I think will help the canteen grow. Here are some of the projects I am currently working on:

Keno, queen of hearts drawing, we are starting up a $.25 board and the drawing will take place on Tuesday evening. This is just like the dollar board, and you can sign up daily. I am looking into getting a credit card machine. We will also be introducing new drink chips. I have a new assistant her name is Stephanie Trago, she is also bartending in the canteen on Thursday nights. You all need to come out and meet her, she is dedicated to making this club the best club around. We have another new bartender, her name is Cheryl Blackburn and she will be working some evenings for us. Tammy Slater is now overseeing the kitchen for us and bringing some new ideas. She also works the Kitchen on Saturday nights. Our 3rd vice Tim Blevins is handling the entertainment for the club, and he has the lineup for this month. It’s football season again and we will be doing different things in the canteen to help promote the games. As always there is NASCAR Sunday’s which is always a good time. CAUTION-CAUTION!

Thank you for your support, without it we would not have a club! Kristal
