Comrades, greetings. It’s hard to believe March is here. Thanks goes out to all who helped with APD. We are still in need of volunteers for hamburger night. We can't have events if people don't step up and help. 
A big thanks goes out to Brian, our gambling manager, and his staff for getting the gambling side of the post straightened out. This spring I will be organizing a cleanup/ maint. detail to get the club ready for the summer. Any help and ideas you have please send them my way. Check out the monthly calendar for upcoming events. Lots to do at your club. Please come out and support your club. As always, please keep in your thoughts and prayers all past and present veterans.

Semper Fi, Jeff Muller, commander


Greetings
February sure went by fast. Spring will be here before we know it. Thank you to all who helped with Audrey’s Purple Dream it was a big success. This is a big community event that has special meaning for anyone who has or had cancer in their lives. Just a note we will NOT be having a Corn-beef and Cabbage dinner this year. We will be selling tickets for an Easter basket. We are asking members to drop off an item for the basket at the Akeley Bank or at the Club by March 4th. The Auxiliary is selling Butterfly magnets for $3.00. All proceeds to go to the Post. They are available at the Club. Anyone who would like to help make butterflies is welcome to come to the club Sunday March 5th at 1:30. Bring a black sharpie and black marker. Keep our service men and women and their families in your prayers.
Charlotte Negen
VFW Auxiliary President
