Letter from the Commander
My Fellow Comrades,
I can finally report to you that we turned a profit for October 2014. I am not sure if that is because October is usually a strong month or if some of changes we made are working, or both. The good news is that we turned a profit and so far November is looking good.
In July, 2014, I put Jim Cox in charge of activities and we started an informal planning committee that reports to the House Committee. The planning committee is made up of the Commander, House Committee Chair, Club Manager, Jim Cox the activities director, a member of the Ladies Auxiliary, and Lisa Richards the Cook. The purpose of this committee is to get more input from the people who are working the club on a daily basis and have more insight than members of the House Committee who meet once a month. If any member has any ideas and input that you would like to see implemented in the club, please contact one of these people. No idea is a bad idea and we may not use the idea as purposed but we may be able to work it into some other project or program.
We will be purchasing the Restaurant/Bar license that will be in effect after the first of the year. This means that we need to have a discussion on being open on Sundays or be open on Sundays for special events. We will not have to apply for special event permits for Sundays anymore. Please give us some suggestions on what you would like to see on Sundays.
I would like to wish everyone “Happy Holidays” and “Merry Christmas” and a “Very Good New Year”.
Gabriel J. Pipo
