Okonomiyaki Snack Demo by Dynamic Duo “Larry and Larry”
Thanks to Larry Baldwin and Larry Emerson for the “Okonomiyaki” snack after the July Post Meeting. But it almost did not happen because Larry forgot the eggs! (Which Larry? Yes, it was the other Larry). Thanks to quick thinking by our S.A.L. Commander Wayne (that's what Commanders are good at) we had Rocky our bartender check if there were any eggs in the big cooler. So, thanks Rocky for finding the eggs and also for taking the money and orders while you were busy at the bar!
Anyway, seems the Okonomiyaki passed the basic taste test – one person order three servings! Plans are in the works for future Okonomiyaki appearances taking into account everyone's comments for improvement. Next time Larry plans to bring the other secret ingredient he forgot, Himalayan Sea Salt. And don't forget, Okonomiyaki is good for your Pr&%$@*# because it has lots of cabbage :)

Boys State Delegates return from Sacramento – Presentation in September?
Our Three Boys State Delegates, Daniel Elizardo and David Rojas, from Sweetwater JROTC and Jose Estrada, active in ASB, returned from the 80th year of the California Boys State Program in Sacramento. This program continues to develop civic leadership and pride in American Citizenship thanks to the many volunteer American Legionnaires who are dedicated to sharing the knowledge.
Thanks also to the Sons for providing some petty cash to help each Delegate with their expenses while attending the week of activities in Sacramento. We look forward to hearing their experience at the Post Meeting.
