A new year is here and I hope 2016 will be a good year for all of us. We are off and running for a good membership drive. The future of the VFW organization is to get young and new vets involved. We can no longer be content with this in the way we have always done. Our growth will depend on new members. We have a great group of members that have done so much and so often. Many hours have been worked long and hard and we could use some help. We are hoping a few more of our members can help us out this year. If you can help us with two to three hours a month, it would help all of us and our club. Everyone has a special talent that would help in one way or another so please step up and give us a call.
This has not been a big month for our club but February looks like it could be much better. So this could be the time to help in any way you can. No more than I do to help out, I get a good feeling knowing I did something to help out the VFW. We had our annual inventory Jan 1st and a small group did a good job. With this task Jim and Shelly
have done such a great job. With everyone's help it went pretty darn smooth. One thing for sure after a year with more hands on I have learned to appreciate all the work the charitable gambling staff do for us. I don't think most members realize how important they are to our club. Thank every one of you. You have done so much for all of us.
Shelly is in Florida now and I am sure she is having a great time. It is my understanding when she comes back to work she will have a new last name, so make sure you give her and Jeff a good welcome back with congratulations.
We will be looking for new officers in a few months. So please step up and get involved. We could really use your help.
