I would like to take this time to catch up on a few changes to Post 1663. We have a new slate of Officers as you probably noticed. I am looking forward to working with everyone and we will try to keep the post running as smoothly as Rob has. Rob has done a great job as Commander and pulled off a feat that no one else has at Post 1663. Commander for 4 years in a row. Wow thanks Rob.
Tom Albertson has retired as Chief cook and bottle washer. Thank you Tom for doing such a fine job and your many dedicated years of service. Tom assisted Joe Steiner for many years before taking on the job himself, and a huge thank you to the KP crew that assisted him.
We would like to welcome our new Chef Brittany Duflo who has brought many new ideas and changes to the menu. We are very excited to have her on board and are looking forward to working with her.
The Sons Detachment of Post 1663 are doing an outstanding job. Pizza nights, Sunday Breakfast’s, Euchre tournaments and hundreds of other tasks around the Post. Thank you. Without your dedication I doubt we would we would be able to exist.
We had a community awareness outdoor party at the Legion with the Patty Sanford Band. Hamburg’s and Hot dogs, salads and of course refreshments of all kinds. Games for children and adults. We had a very good turnout and everyone had lots of fun. We have already set a date and booked a band for next year. I would like to thank Ron Wolfe, he was the mastermind behind this and through lots of hard work and determination it was a great success. Keep up the good work Ron.
The same goes for the Ladies Auxiliary, Thank you for your many services, especially the funeral dinners that mean so much to so many.
The Post also supported the Meyers N More relay for life Cancer Shoot who raised over $1900.00 for the fight against Cancer at the Beaver River Fish & Game Club.
Coming August 27th we are expecting approximately 300 motorcycles to stop at our Post around 12 o’clock. We could use some extra help to take care of this many people. It will be interesting for sure.
Just a reminder that this is YOUR POST, you make it what it is. Please stop in and take an interest, we need your support. Take advantage of the many ways you could use YOUR POST, from baby showers, to wedding receptions, banquets, family gatherings, birthdays or funeral dinners. It is YOUR POST use it.
Finally I would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped, we could not do all we do without you.
The next meetings are the second Wednesday in September 7:00 PM
