FROM THE COMMANDER -Becky Stormont
For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting, we approved one new member that we would like to welcome to our club. The election is in May and we will be having nominations at our March and April Membership meetings. Date and time of the election will be posted after the April nominations.
At our last meeting in January we approved to hire a third party to solicit a petition for us to get on the May or if no May ballot the November ballot for a Sunday Liquor license. They went door to door asking for signatures on a petition so that we can get in on the Ballot. They got us the signatures needed and filed the petition with the Board of Elections. Bob Young with WHY I SEE, Young Independent Consultants, Inc. advised me there will not be a May ballot, but we will be in the November election, 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 sold the 104 raffle tickets and would like to say thank you to all that participated. The drawing was Sunday February 24th and we paid 1st place of $750.00 to Les Dials and 2nd place of $250.00 to Brian Wallace. We will hold another raffle for $10 per ticket. We will sell 200 tickets and will pay out $500, $200 and 3- $100 winners. You will not have to be present to win and you do not have to be a member to play. 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.
We had a Valentine’s Day Dinner on Thursday, February 14, 2019 from 5:00 to 9:00. I would like to thank everyone who came out and supported the club. On Sunday March 24, 2019 we will be having a meatloaf cook-off for those of you who think they make a mean meatloaf. There will be a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prize and of course bragging rights! There will be a sign-up sheet at the bar and should be fun. The time is 2:00 to 4:00 on that Sunday. Bring your voting crew to help taste test the meatloaf.
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. 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, March 12th 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

CANTEEN NEWS -Kristal Scott, Manager
What a good end to a short but busy month with the Valentine’s Day Dinner, our monthly dinner, the chili cook- off and the opening week of NASCAR. All which showed lots of interest and participation.
As most of you know NASCAR has begun. Please join us in watching the races and enjoying the CAUTION beers. The Sunday liquor license is in process. The signatures have been obtained that we needed to get the petition on the ballot.
As a reminder the cashiers are now able to give cash back for your credit or debit card transactions. This will eliminate the fees that are charged by using the ATM on site.
The last Sunday in every month is going to become Birthday Celebration Day. Food and cake will be provided in celebration of anyone who had a birthday in that month. Please come in and join the celebration with us. Kristal
