March has been a busy month for a few of our volunteers. Thank goodness for a few of our dedicated volunteers. Thank goodness for these workers that does so much for us. There are a few snowbirds that are back and more to come real soon. Even when they are gone we have many volunteers that help out. A lot of good things get done for our post.
We are hoping that real soon we will have a head cook at our post. That could take some pressure of the volunteers. Some of our women and men have worked so hard time and time again
Every spring there is a lot of work to do and this year is no exception. So if there is something you could help with like for example, the grass needs to be mowed each week. The biggest project will be all the work to do at the memorial site. We have to work on our new expansion. Clean up all the pavers that are there now. We can use whatever help we can get. The memorial needs to be completed this summer just give Mike or myself a call.
My year as commander is close to an end and we really need some new ones to step up. Too many times the position has been handed to the old ones, new and young ones would be greatly appreciated. We have received so much valuable information from our young vets and we really value that. If you know any of them thank them and
recognize all they have done. Please come to our next meeting and meet everyone.
If you bought a raffle ticket for our calendar I can say for fact you have a good chance of winning. I know this because I just signed a check for $50. You might just have a check in the mail!!
Our club is an important part of our community, so I sure hope we can be an important part to our club, come and enjoy. We have a lot of special events or a nice evening out with friends. We want everyone to enjoy coming to our club and will have a good experience.
These letters are not my favorite part about being a commander. But with help from my wife (Janie) and daughter (Christa) I think I can put together a few more letters!!!!
Dear Auxiliary Sisters,
Hope every one of you have had a great Easter. Hope Spring is here to stay and soon we will see green grass growing.
We had a few faithful members present for our March meeting, but got very important business done. I have put in my notice of "not cooking after June 1st". So the ladies voted to hire a new cook, wages starting at $15.00 an hour. Message- Cook Wanted- Starting at $15.00 an hour starting soon!! Get the word out to everybody. Apply at the bar..
Ladies also voted to spend $50.00 for the Marcella Arnold Nursing Scholarship and MN Soldier Scholarship, department programs for the VFW Auxiliary.
Next month will be time to vote for the new officers of the Auxiliary. I will not be your next President. Someone else needs to step up to the plate. So Sisters, be visiting with each other and find a new president. I am retiring, I will be around to continue to help the Veterans, but in other ways then cook or President.
Sisters please turn out for the next monthly meeting, bring someone with you, younger generation please! There are changes being made, please be a part of them. This last meeting, was a "round table" meeting. Everyone there thought it was a great improvement. So next month we will do it again, maybe a change that will march on with the next President.
Next meeting April 20th at 7:00 pm. Servers Carol K., Julie K., and Joan M.
Thank you Joe Ketelboeter, Sandy Ketelboeter, Chub Hensley, John Pallow, & Cal Uhl for helping unload and set up the new dining room tables. They much enhance the decor of the dining room area.
“Wanted a Cook" (male or female) wages at $15.00. Events would be all weddings, class
reunions, open houses, etc. The cook would be ordering food, cooking the meal, clean up and
some paper work. Volunteers would be helping with serving and clean up. Please apply at the
