Dear Comrades
Man, it is September already? The older I get the faster time goes by! It has been a good summer at the post. We had the range rented for the weekend five different times this year. Volunteers have been BBQing on the range for about all the events and the canteen and auxiliary have provided meals as well. Getting help from the membership is sometimes challenging but we survive. If anyone is interested in helping please notify me or someone working at one of the dinners. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

I would really like to thank the Auxiliary for contributing money from their account to help pay some of the VFW’s bills. Things are real tight right now and their contribution is a Godsend! Thank you to all members. The Auxiliary does a lot of great things for the Post and their volunteer help is very appreciated.

Please DO NOT DUMP furniture or other debris on range by the stage. We’ve cleaned the area up and removed what we couldn’t burn. Any unauthorized people dumping will be prosecuted when caught. Thank you.

To those that are ill we wish you a speedy recovery. To those that have lost a loved one our deepest sympathy.

Commander,
Ron Luebke

CHAPLAIN CORNER
...."Those who have served under fire, have experiences something that only a small percentage of our brothers and sisters have experienced. For most that experience will draw the best from the individual and the memories of such
experiences will remain a major part of one's life until the end of days. Life will always present those 'under fire' experiences, be they in live combat or just in the everyday tough times, but everyone is wired to use those experiences for making things better in the long run. The ones who have endured the 'live fire' or the 'tough times' are in a better position to aid others in meeting their own difficulties. May we continue developing our own unique experiences for helping others during this most difficult age".

Dear Auxiliary Sisters & Brothers
Fall is fast approaching and it’s time for football!    Come to the post and watch your favorite team.     Have a safe and fun Labor Day!   
Don’t forget to get your 2018 dues paid.    National Headquarters has a new system called Malta to process annual dues for Auxiliary members. You can now pay your dues online.  Go to https://vfwauxiliary.org and click on “Member Login.” You will be directed to create a login to MALTA. You can still pay them at the post too.  Once payment has been cleared at National Headquarters your membership cards will be mailed to you.  Expect a time frame of 2-4 weeks after they receive your payment.   Come to our meetings held the second Thursday of the month to see what else is happening in the Auxiliary.  
Please note that the hours for the tenderloin sandwiches have been changed to 5:00 -7:30 pm.  the first Saturday of the month.    Hope to see you there!
Just a reminder that the Mt. Top Memorial golf outing is on Sept. 30th at 8:30am.  
 A dinner will be served at the post afterwards.    Entry forms are at the post and must be in by Sept. 22th. No exceptions!   
    The euchre tournaments will start up again in October and will be the second Sunday of every month.  It is only $3 to play and lots of fun.   Trivia will also be back every Wednesday beginning October 18th at 7:00 pm. So get out of the house and come up for some fun.
    We will be having a hayride and bonfire for every one of all ages on Oct 20th weather permitting. Hot dogs will be available for roasting over the fire!  Please check the weather and dress appropriately.  It does get chilly on the hay ride.  
    Oct. 28th will be the adult Halloween party and dance with Excalibur Sound at 8:00 pm.    There will be a costume contest and lots of fun.  Get your scariest or most original costume ready and come on up for a night of freaky fun!   Enjoy a steak dinner before the dance.   
    To any of our Auxiliary sisters who are ill or have lost a loved one, our thoughts and prayer are with you.
