Note from the Commander

Just a short note as we go into December

As we are closing out 2019, I want you to think about who to look forward to be the next Commander of Post 712 next year. This position wasn’t easy for me as I was ill prepared. I made some hard decisions, made mistakes, but learned from them. This totally volunteer position is not as easy as it appears, and the time demands are such that I now cannot volunteer as much as I had in the past for this important position. If you know of anyone interested in the position, please leave your contact information at the bar, and someone will get back to you.

We went through a rough period 15 months ago until our Adjutant Dave Masslon volunteered and got up to speed. Dave our Adjutant is a hard-working problem solver who has far exceeded my expectations. Dave is a real go-getter that pays attention to detail and is meticulous in the way he goes about his work. We are extremely fortunate that he has joined our team.

Nila Porter has assumed the responsibilities of Finance Officer of the Post as Bill Martinis has retired. Bill held the Finance Officer position for some 14 years.  We owe Bill a ton of gratitude and a huge “Thank You, Bill!”

I am also suspending Bingo for the month of December as I cannot be available every Wednesday as I have a personal project that requires a lot of attention and those that work have to do their shopping. If there is anyone who would like to volunteer to run the bingo during this time, please let me know as soon as possible so that Bingo can be resumed.  

Upcoming events are:

·         Post Meeting on Monday December 2nd.

·         Children’s Christmas Party on Saturday December 7th at 10:00 am 

·         Post Christmas Party on Saturday December 14th starting at 4:00 pm   

·         New Year’s Eve Party – December 31. Buy tickets from the bartender for $10.

The Post will be closed on December 24 (Christmas Eve), December 25 (Christmas), and on January 1 (Wednesday).          

Respectfully submitted,

Lee Phillips
