From the Commander,

 

I hope this newsletter finds all doing well and being safe.

 

I would like again thank the Sons of Amvets, the Ladies Auxiliary of Post 1988 and the Honor/Color Guards, for a great job they did with the Grill Outs.  for a great job they did with the Grill Outs.

 

We have started the “Pot Luck” dinners on Wednesdays, starting October 6th.  The sponsors for each dinner will be eligible for compensation up to ninety dollars ($90.00) in true expenses for food. Original receipts must be provided. The meals will be $6.00 each.  Please make the effort to participate in cooking (sponsoring) these meals as well as coming in to dine with our friends. Check the post for signup sheet. Dinners are to be served from 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM.

 

I have noticed some coming during the grill outs and other food event “chipping away” at some of the food that is out (sometimes with their bare fingers), before paying for their meal. This has to STOP, Please!!

 

I encourage all members to provide the post with a current email address. In doing so, we can easily get out the word on current and upcoming events, newsletters, etc.

 

Also, please use our website: americanveteranspost1988.com to keep informed on current events and what is happening at our post. We have added a post email address to receive correspondence from our membership. Please feel free to email us at: ohamvets1988@gmail.com

 

Our Turkey Raffle began in September.

 

Again we have received some very generous donations. Special thanks to Bernard (Bud) Becker,  as well as, Vincent Meinecke. And a beautiful collection of military themed wall clocks, honoring the five (5) branches of service. To be displayed soon on our walls.  Compliments of Peter Jones, Retired US Air Force.  Many Thanks, Peter

 

I have been informed that Post Business is not to be discussed in the Canteen during bar hours.  I have been entertaining discussions with many members regarding Post business while there. Moving forward, we will not be doing this in the Canteen.  All members are encouraged to use the “Suggestion Box” located in the front on the table, or in the form of written agenda items submitted to any Board/Trustee member, or at our monthly meetings. Additionally, only regular members are permitted to be voting at those regular meetings.  Supporting organizations like the Auxiliary, Sons, or Honor Guard/Color Guard should be discussing their agendas at their designated meetings and thus presenting it to myself or a Board member through their President or Liaison officer.

 

The Electronic Bulletin Board seems to be taking notice.  Please always check this out when at the post!

 

Hope to see you at the Post.

 

Gary Stern, Commander
