Comrades, greetings,

 April is here and I hope this letter finds everyone in good health and spirit. The post and club made it through another winter. It has been a tough go. We need more participation from our members. Hamburger night is still going, but we need volunteers. Please step up and help. With Memorial Day coming soon I still need to put together a color/honor guard. If you can help, please do. April brings the start of post elections. Come out to the monthly meeting and vote. Stop out to your club and see what’s going on. Check out the post/club calendar. Remember, it’s your post and club and it will only stay open with your help and support. As always, please keep in your thoughts and prayers all veterans past and present. 

Semper Fi, Jeff Muller commander

Greetings
Spring has sprung, its April 1st the sun is shining and its a beautiful day. Tickets for the spring basket are on sale at the Club and at the Bank in Akeley. There are two baskets, one for kids and one for adults. The value is $150.00. Get your tickets this week the drawing will be April 7th  after the Lions & Akeley Chamber fish fry. Come out for fish dinner and stay for the drawing. The Butterfly magnets are still on sale at the Club for $3.00. All proceeds to go to the Post. Our election of officers will be held at our April meeting. Please plan to attend. This is your Auxiliary and we need your input. The Post is in need of persons to march in the Memorial Day services and the Paul Bunyan Day parade. If you are willing to help with either, please contact me. A Blessed Happy Easter to everyone.  Keep our service men and women and their families in your prayers.
