Commander's Message

 

Legionnaires:

November and the holiday season will now begin.  

First of all, November 4th is election day and hopefully you all will exercise your right to vote.  November 11th is Veterans Day.  The VFW is in charge this year.

 

November 27th is Thanksgiving Day.  The club will be serving Tom and Jerry’s from 9:00 a.m. to noon.  I hope everyone has a wonderful time on this day with their family and friends.

We now have a 70” big screen TV in the club to watch your favorite sports team.  A big Thank You to our Sons of the American Legion for purchasing it and to Dave Mullenbach for getting it set up.   I’ve now asked our Club Manager, Bob Mickelsen to write a column for this flyer each month to better keep everyone informed as to what’s going on at the club.

With the new church operating at the Marion Ross Theater on Sundays, you may find parking around our building from 10:30 – 11:30 a little harder to find.  You might have to walk a little further in that time period to get to our great breakfasts.  Our people put on a great breakfast each time.  We are continually feeding over 200 people each time we serve.  These breakfast’s help to keep us going.  On November 2nd, the first Sunday of the month, Glenville High School Trap Team will be having a breakfast fundraiser at our Legion.  I hope you can come out to support them.

At the next Post meeting we will be voting on the changes to our by-laws that have been recommended by our Post Judge Advocate.

Come on out and enjoy what the Legion has to offer

God Bless,

Club Notes

 

To let you know what is happening in the club, I will be writing a short message each month.  This month lets not forget our Veterans on VETERANS DAY ON NOVEMBER 11TH!!

This month I would like to let you know we are now serving some Burger Baskets on Thursday nights, except on the 3rd Thursday of the month when we do the Fish Fry.

We have started a Bean Bag League on Thursday nights that we are not doing on the night of the Fish Fry or on Holidays.  The Bean Bag League will run through January of 2015, you can start any time.

Don’t forget the Tom and Jerry’s on Thanksgiving Day.  The bar will close at 1:30 pm.  Start thinking about Christmas and New Years Eve.

More to come in the following months.

Your Club Manager,
Bob Mickelsen
