Message from the Commander – March 2019

Hello fellow members, I missed last month’s note so time to get caught back up. Much has been happening, the best part is when I do come to the Post it is very nice to see the people there that are also coming to enjoy some relaxing time and pleasant company.

We have been busy lately; Monday lunches are still going on and slowly but surely are getting better so for those who have not had the pleasure yet, stop in on Monday for relaxing company and good food. We have been doing some banquets, the kitchen crews are doing very well with providing great dinners and excellent service so hopefully the word spreads and we continue to use our dining room for public events and make money this way. We have also been providing a funeral dinner for those that do not have a place to go after their loved ones funeral to relax and chat with family and friends. As for the kitchen help, they’re doing a great job and we are always looking for additional people who are interested in volunteering to create additional teams as to not call on the same folks all the time. If interested, contact the Commander or tell the bartender please.

We are sending 20 individuals to the National Commander’s Visitation dinner on March 27th. This is quite an honor to have the National American Legion Commander come to our county to visit and thank you to the folks that have shown interest in wanting to attend. I’m sure it will be a worthwhile evening.

We have ordered our deep fryer that was requested by several and should be arriving the first part of April. Initially, we will be having specific nights to provide our patrons a variety of deep fried foods with teams of two to prepare and serve. If anyone is interested in being a team, please let the commander know or tell the bartender, all help will be appreciated. In the near future, the bartenders will be serving fried food during the busier days of the week for people that want to eat while enjoying a cold beverage.

In summary, it has been a pleasure for the past seven months serving as your Commander. I really enjoy coming to the Post and seeing a nice group of people enjoying themselves and getting into good conversation. Remember, this is our Post so enjoy it as much as you prefer and if something is out of line, or you have suggestions, please let us know. Again, thank you all for your patronage.
