Jones, Bill Eastman, Susan Oakes for staying up with me and cooking the pig for the July 4th Open House. Thanks to Marsha Martin for the Baked Beans. This will probably be the last pig I cook. It’s getting to hard to stay up late at night to ensure the pig is cooked correctly. We used to have big turn outs to help with the pig but people just don’t want to volunteer any longer. Anyway, the July 4th Open House was great. We had a big turn out and a lot of members showed up. Thanks to the Riders for their $50.00 donation and thanks to everyone for their support. Dignity Memorial Services has been endorsed by the Department of Florida to educate Veterans and their families on the options and benefits available to Veterans. At the General Membership meeting 7/12/11, 16 of the 18 members there wanted more details on this information. Dignity Memorial Services will hold an education lunch at Sonny’s Bar-B-Q on US 98 and Navy Blvd. on August 18, 2011 at 12:00PM. If you would like to attend please call me so I can give them a number of people for lunch. Call me at 850-982-1947. For God and Country Jimmy Lee Martin 1st Vice Commander Membership cards are now available for 2012! I would like to extend a big WELCOME to all of our new members! When you renew please pay by check if at all possible. For those who prefer to pay by credit card – we cannot issue your membership card until the charge is approved at the Department level which takes approximately 6 weeks. We will be having our quarterly Membership Appreciation Day on 21 Aug 11 at 1400. Please come and join us and bring your favorite dish for the potluck. For God and Country Mike Munoz 3rd Vice Commander Installation of the newly elected officers is over and I will be moving on to a new position within the Post. At this time I would like to congratulate and introduce Bill Eastman to you as our Third Vice Commander of Post 240. Bill has been with me the entire time on your fish fry staff and has been primarily responsible for those great tasting Jalapeno hushpuppies. So come on out and support your fish fry cooking family and enjoy the same quality of food that you have had over the past year. I would like to thank my support staff: Mr. Bob and Mr. Bill, my cook shack staff; Marsha, Tina, Skeet, Susan, D.J. and Mary, our kitchen staff; last but not least, Al and Phil who so gladly received you at the door for your food purchase. The next fish fry is August 7th where we all will be ready to serve you again. Serving starts at 2:00 pm until gone.
