FROM THE COMMANDER -Becky Stormont

For those of you who were not able to make our last meeting, we approved 2 new members, William Cassell and James Beardsley, we would like to welcome them all to our club. We approved to hire a third party to solicit a petition for us to get it on the May or if no May ballot the November Ballot for a Sunday Liquor license. They will be going door to door asking for signatures on the petition so that we can get in on the Ballot. If you are one of the people in our precinct, please sign the petition and go out and vote. This is a very costly venture. We have hired Bob Young with WHY I SEE, Young Independent Consultants, Inc. to get out there and get the vote for us.

The AMVETS is selling 104 raffle tickets at $20.00 per ticket to help with some of the cost of the license. There will be a 1st place pay out of $750.00 and a second-place pay out of $250.00 you do 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 bartender’s have the raffle tickets. We will be holding other raffles to try and help with the cost of the liquor license.

We will be having a Valentine’s Day Dinner on Thursday, February 14, 2019 from 5:00 to 9:00. The cost of the dinner will be $6.50, which consists of: side salad, rolls and pasta entrée. On Sunday February 17, 2019 we will be having a chili cook off for those of you who think they make a mean pot of chili. 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, so looking for all you great chili cooks to bring it. Should be fun. The time is 1:00 to 4:00 on that Sunday. Bring your voting crew to help taste test the chili. Everyone is enjoying Hot Dog Wednesday! Frank has hot dogs and sausages with all the trimmings all day until they are gone. Donations are welcomed. Come in and enjoy. We have cancelled Thursday night euchre due to low participation. Be sure to still stop in on Thursdays for our Queen of Hearts drawing. Per the Board of Trustees at our January 8th meeting, we have posted the rules for the $5, $1, and quarter boards, please take time to read them.

The kitchen is open every Friday and Saturday nights from 4-10PM, we are serving the following menu: pizza, subs, wings, hamburgers, fish sandwiches, salads, some appetizers. The menus with prices are at the bar and on the tables. The kitchen will have another dinner special in February. Come in and try the food out, it is very good!

I hope to see you all at our next Membership Meeting, which is Tuesday, February 12, 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

Hello all! Lots of exciting things going on and offered by the kitchen for February! First, I want to thank everyone for the support with the Dinner Plate Special we had last month. It went over well. We are going to offer another dinner on Friday, February 8th. This will be a Baked Spaghetti Dinner also, with side salad and garlic bread for $6.50.

We have also started offering 6″ cold cut subs. We have 2 choices, cold Ham and Cheese Sub or a cold Submarine Sub with salami, ham, pepperoni and provolone cheese. These will be available from your bartender for $3.50 Sun-Thurs., until they sell out. If they go over well, we will make sure there will be more available to you. I want to make sure our members can have a snack available throughout the week.

Also, we are pleased to announce we are going to have a Chili Cook Off! Date is set for Sunday February 17th from 1-4PM. If you have a chili recipe you are proud of, then get your crock-pots ready. I will have a signup sheet at the bar for you to sign up, please get involved. I certainly am getting in on this! There will be cash prizes for 1st place – $25 and Bragging Rights 😉 / 2nd place $15 / 3rd place $10.

One final thing, we have added Boneless Chicken Tenderloins to our menu.
