Our year end is coming for membership. We will need your dues by Dec. 23, 20l4 to remain in good standing. We have raised our dues to $20 a year. This money helps our veteran programs, pays for a newsletter every month to keep you informed of what is going on at our Post and it also gives you 2 cancer grants of $550 each. The grants need to be a year apart. You must be a member of at least 1 year and in good standing.
In the Post parking lot is a container where you can drop good used clothing. The clothing is used to help our disabled Veterans. You just pull up and drop them in. They should be in a plastic bag. Our Veterans really appreciate all you do for them. Remember Freedom is not FREE and they were willing to serve so we can be FREE.
This year’s FREE Veteran’s Appreciation Supper will be on Tue Dec. 2 at 5:30 at the Post home. All Veteran’s and their families are invited. The first 3 places of Patriot’s Pen and Voice of Democracy will give their speech. I hope you will take the time from your busy schedules to attend and enjoy fellowship with other Veterans.
We had our first Ham and Turkey Bingo at the Post on Tue. Nov. 18. Our 2nd Ham and Turkey Bingo will be Tue. Dec. 16, 2014at 7 pm.
