There are a couple things I’d like to bring to your attention in this newsletter: 

1st , I want to thank everyone who has participated in our previous two Brat Barns. Through your efforts, we’ve earned just over $2,000.00. I appreciate your help very much, but we’ve got one more to go and that’s going to be held on Friday June 28th . The one thing that disappoints me though is that even if you can’t work the event, why is it that we only see one or two post members buying a brat or a burger? I mean, I get it, we all can’t spend a two-hour shift cooking or fixing the sandwiches for the customers but why is it that we can’t support our own event by coming down for a few minutes and buying a brat or a burger? Just asking for a friend. 
2nd , After the last hall rental, the place was left in a mess. Mylar glitter was spread over the floors, the floors were sticky, and helium balloons were wrapped up in the fans. On the 28th of May, when we were recovering flags, we were also untying and removing balloons. It was disgusting and I instructed the Rental Coordinator to refuse to return the party’s security deposit. At the last meeting of the Post, I mentioned that we needed to conduct a field day (that’s NAVY for clean-up) so on Juneteenth we did just that. Therefore, I want to thank Mike Dugan, John Ackey, Tom Herber, Len Madison, Keith Garland, Mark Pirlot, Glen Boyles, Jim Faucett, Jerry Willems and Rick Young for coming down and celebrating their holiday by running brooms, swinging mops, and pushing vacuums to clean the mess up. 
3rd , it’s time to pay our dues again! As of the first of July, we will be starting a new dues cycle. For those of us who are PUFL or Life members or even have the National auto draft from our checking accounts we’re golden. Disregard this. It’s the rest of us that I’m trying to reach. Get your dues paid early and don’t forget, they’ve gone up this year! 
Finally, the Department convention will be held in Appleton this year and we need some more folks to attend it. Right now, there are only two of us signed up and if you’re an elected officer, I would strongly suggest that you volunteer some time and go down and see what goes on at one of these meetings. Personally, I find the committee meetings to be most informative. You can learn a lot by attending one of those meetings. Talk to Tom and get signed up for a day or two.
