November is a time for us to give thanks for the things in our lives, OUR loved ones and all the blessings that the good Lord has provided for us. Let’s not forget the sacrifices OUR service members are giving, those that gave or those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. OUR Post has a lot of experience!!! Let’s not waste it. Take the time to hear what the more senior members have to say. One person cannot do everything and others are willing to help. Thanks to all who made October’s events so memorable. Business: Jimmy Lee Martin has resigned as 1st Vice. Thank you for your service. Ron “Bull” Woolsey was nominated and he accepted. He is currently appointed as interim 1st Vice and Adjutant. We will vote at the next general meeting on 13 November. I am still looking for a volunteer to be OUR Historian. Speaking of volunteers, I need someone to step up for Veteran’s Day Open House (Pot luck) on the 11th and another to organize Thanksgiving (Dinner for the Troops) on the 22nd. Please volunteer early so these events can shine like we have thus far. Lastly, OUR fall Post Cleanup is 10 November. We have a lot of things we want to accomplish but it will depend on the number of volunteers we get. Come and help keep OUR Post looking beautiful. Lunch will be provided. Please remember to be courteous and considerate of your fellow Comrades, we are ALL on the same team!!!For God and Country Mike Holdener 1st Vice Cdr – Thanks to 67% of you who have paid your dues up to now. We welcome Dwayne Vinnet, John Sparren & George Smith as new members and John Kranak, Anthony Crisostomi & Ted Maki as transfer members to our Post. We need for the rest of you to pay your dues so we can attain our 100% (968 members) Membership. Just come into the Post and put your money for 2013 into the Adjutant/Membership box. We are trying to get our Post at 100% well before the March 2013 goal date. Just think if only half of our current membership brought in one new member we would hit our 100% goal with ease. I have resigned my position as your 1st Vice Cdr and Ron “Bull” Woolsey will take over as 1st Vice and Adjutant. I signed on to help the new Commander with the transition and now it’s time I took some time off. I have held a position with the American Legion in one office or another since 2001. The Commander has a good team to help him, so please continue to support them all. I will still be around. Thanks for allowing me to serve you. Please support your Post and Lounge. For God and Country Jimmy Lee Martin 3rd Vice Cdr– Keep it coming folks! We had another wonderful turnout and show of response to our October Fish Fry. The devotion of your fish fry crew to provide you with quality food each month is reflected by the continued support you show by the numbers of folks that have been coming out to enjoy a great meal. We thank all of you. Remember: Serving starts at 2:PM and served until food is gone.........Come Early!
