COMMANDER

PAUL PATRICIO 

Fellow Legionnaires, 

                As is the norm, I will start off my report with our newest members: Charles Arriola, USA; Cynthia Bachorski, USN; Frank Boss, USN; Robert Deptula, USN; Edward Flinn; James Hitch, USN; Bradley Knudson, USN; Carlo Ledbetter, USN; Robert Legaspi, USN; Thomas Lohner, USN; Lamberto Magat, USN; Alanzo McClendon, USN; Gregory Mockeridge, USN; Federico Orona, USA; Alfredo Sagan, USN; Helmut Serrano, USMC; Michael Smith, USMC; Thomas Stewart, USN; Emilio Varela, USN; Earl Veil, USN; Steven Zurbrick, USAF.

We are now over 62% with this year’s membership working on exceeding our goals this year.  I challenge each and every one of you to bring in at least one new member to the Post..   It’s not that difficult, there are a lot of eligible vets out there who are not members, all they need is to know what it takes to join…  Remember, our dues have not been raised so we are one of the least expensive posts in the area.

October kept us busy at the Post.   Besides our normal weekly events, we hosted a few parties and of course the lovely ladies from the Auxiliary hosted their annual Children’s Halloween Party followed by the ever popular Adult Costume Party…   We also had a productive Post Meeting in October with some new faces in attendance.

One of the less favorable but entirely necessary topics was the fact that the bar is going to have to raise the prices of a few of the drinks to keep up with costs.   By the time this newsletter hits the street those of you affected, like me, will already know.

Lots of things happening at the Post in November, include the Fish Fry on the 10th, a week later than originally planned with the raffle & 50/50 going to the Riders.  We have our regular Tuesday and Thursday lunches, Wednesday soups and during football season we have Monday Night Football grub with guest chefs each week.   Please pay attention to the weekly email Diane sends out as she updates the events regularly.  Also, please remember that the post will be closed on Thanksgiving, the one day we shut down every year.

The Post needs a Historian, anyone interested?  Not that difficult of a job, all you have to do is attend a few events, take some nice pictures and attend the monthly meeting.  There are a couple annual reports as well, but we can help with those.  If you’re interested please let me know.

I am still looking for input as to what I can do to get more members to attend the monthly meetings and be part of the process.  If you have some thoughts or suggestions, please send me an email or let me know next time you see me..  Remember, the Post Meeting is where Post business is discussed, not while drinking at the bar.

I look forward to seeing you down at the Post and REALLY hope to see you at the next meeting…... 

Thanks for your continued support

AT THE POST

We are still collecting your unused eye glasses and unused cell phones for donations and are still collecting used ink jet cartridges at the Post.   We turn the cartridges in to receive up to $40.00 store credit each month.   The credit is then used to reduce the cost of our office supplies - paper and mailing dots for the newsletter, ink for our printers, stamps, etc.   We used to turn in our quota each month, but haven't lately. We appreciate your help on this one.
