      FROM THE COMMANDER

We are coming to the end of another year. With the holiday season on us we need to remember our fellow members and pay our dues. I wish everyone a happy holiday season and good luck to the hunters. We have a chili cookoff on Nov 12th. People are needed to enter their chilis and other people to show up and judge the winner. We also need prizes to raffle off and people to buy tickets. On Nov 10th, I will be having more surgery and will be laid up till the 1st of the year. Keep me in your prayers.

Commander John Akey

      FROM THE ADJUTANTS DESK

At the September meeting, I was nominated to be adjutant until the elections take place. Everyone should feel free to contact me with questions or concerns and I will try to address it. Membership renewals have slowed down dramatically. The 9th District membership report listed Post 11 at 58.6 %. Post 11 will be reaching out to members that didn't renew with the hope of increasing membership. If a member is having financial difficulty paying  their dues, the Walter Riebe Fund is available.

Adjutant Tom Herber & Gil Hucek
 
Just a reminder no social meeting for November or December
 
CALLING ALL PAST POST COMMANDERS.....The past commanders lunch will be Saturday the 10th of December at 11AM at Julie's Cafe, 2130 Velp Av. This is across the street from the Watering Hole.
