This has been a great month for good food at our post. As usual Mike has had his wings and wedges. There was a roast beef dinner put on by Shelly and Jeff , a fish fry dinner put on by Jerry Kral and of course all their helpers. A spaghetti dinner; that Mary George cooked with volunteer helpers. A big thank you to everyone. This was a good way to make the public aware of our mental health issues of our veterans. We were able to make a donation to the Eagle Nest in Sauk Center. This is a great place.
Veterans Day will be here soon. I hope you can join us for this special day; to honor our veterans. I hope to get a closure to our Armed Forces memorial. We have a few more small jobs to do to make it one of the nicest memorials in the state. Thanks to Kearny Frank for his dedication to making sure it is always swept off and nice and clean.
Make sure to look at your newsletter calendar of events this month. There will be a number of events to enjoy.
We work hard to make our post a nice place to visit. If you have any concerns or suggestions we welcome your comments.
Our snowbirds are heading south so have a great winter and we will look forward to see you in the spring.
Dear Auxiliary Members,

Two flags were purchased and donated to the Osakis Athletic Field. A $100 donation was motioned/approved for the Osakis After Prom Party.
Open welcome to attend The Veteran's Day Program at 10:15 a.m.; on Friday, November 11, 2016 in the Osakis School Auditorium.
Last year there was not a November meeting of the Auxiliary because it would have been the same week as Thanksgiving. This year we WILL BE having a November meeting. Please plan to attend our next Auxiliary meeting 7:00 p.m., November 16, 2016 in the VFW Post 7902 banquet room.
Servers for November are Carolyn H., Laurie N., and LeAnn R.
Have a safe and Happy Halloween :)

Also, all Vets &; Auxiliary members who attend the Post or Auxiliary meeting will receive a fifty cent reduction on alcohol beverages after the meeting until closing. The courtesy of displaying a membership card to receive this price break would be appreciated by the bar personnel.
Thanks to all who continue to respond when called to help with our many volunteer activities. Fundraisers for the month of November are: fish fry on the 11 th , & roast beef dinner on the 25 th . We’re still looking for enterprising individuals to start a new monthly activity. A monthly chicken dinner would be fantastic. Once per month is not a great commitment and being involved with projects usually is satisfying and fun.
