Newsletter – January 2018

Commander – Al Norton
A special thank you to Jack Hodges for purchasing our new lights for the big sign on the front of our building. Jack you are super!

Thanks to all who donated to the light sign. These funds are used to help pay for good LED bulbs and the new light sign to announce our happenings at the Post.

2017 was a very busy time making improvements to our Post. The list of members that donated valuable time to do all of the labor is too long to list however, the top few are: Bob Acre, Bob Nellis, Tom Cleveland, Bill Miller, Deon Hardy, Donnie Polstin and David Thibeau. Pat and Dave also donated 2 spiral hams to the Post. Thank you all!!

Our National Commander, Denise Rohan is visiting Post 44 on January 7th 2018 from 12:00 to 1:00.
The locks will be changed on the front door on January 1st 2018. You must have your 2018 membership card before you can get the new door card.

December was a fun holiday season; I hope everyone had a great time.
God bless our Troops, Veterans, the USA and all members of Post 44!

Finance Officer- Bob Nellis
As the end of 2017 nears it is also the end of our first six months for the fiscal year. December is trending to be the best month of the previous five for gaming. The bar continues to do exceptionally well and the kitchen is holding it’s own. Over all it has been a good six months.

The repairs to the exterior and interior of the building have been completed. All of the associated bills have been paid through our insurance. A new electronic activities sign and lighting for the sign over the west entrance are being installed. This is being done with volunteer labor and a portion of the money from member donated dollars.
