 From The Commander:
Hello All,
Here’s to wishing all well during this spring thaw. Typical Cincinnati weather.
I have been tirelessly working to help with the kitchen upgrades. Things are really shaping up!!
I would like to thank the following for their contributions and hard work in renovating our kitchen:
The Ladies’ Auxiliary , Sons of Amvets and Members.
Special thanks to:
Bill Harmeyer, Boomie Vesper, Jim Ruch, Rich Kuhlman, Cathy Pohlman, Pat Candelaresi, Kathy Meyer
Gary Kavanaugh and Mark Schinaman for their time and labor.
Many thanks to the Wooley Electric Supply Company for their generous donation of electrical lighting.
And thanks to Katie Rhem for the prep table donation.
Our Opening Day meal was a Great success many thanks to Bob Schinaman. Also thanks to Jerry Hull
for his help and Cathy Pohlman joined in when I was getting a little swamped. Thanks Cathy.
We are still struggling from the pandemic as far as Canteen revenue. Perhaps when the kitchen is
completed, we will get our grill outs and other events back and running.
Our summer picnic was discussed last meeting so we will keep you informed of any updates.
The Ham Raffle went very well thanks to the efforts of Dick Nelson!
In closing, I encourage all members and guests to continue enjoying the post and following safe
practices.
Sincerely,
Gary Stern, Commander
