Welcome From RCl Post 144, USA

Post General Meetings:
Held every 2nd Monday of each month at American Legion Post 7.
(There are no meetings from May to Oct)

Our first of the season Post 144 Meetings will start at our new time of 1400 hrs (2:00 pm) on Monday, 14 November at AL Post 7. Bring potential new members. We should have our 2017 Membership Cards available, so bring your checkbook or cash. Still only $40.00 for the year. We may have to put it up next year. We need an Adjutant. Think about who might do a good job, or about volunteering yourself to help the cause. We could also use a Recording Secretary to take notes at meetings and do up the minutes. Many hands make light work, so think about offering to help out on something you might be good at. We can always teach you what you need to know. Let's start the season off with a huge turnout. Everyone who is in the area is invited to bring a friend who might like what we do. Now that the Canadian Club Gulf Coast Florida is open to ladies, how about coming out to our first Lunch at 11:00 am on Wednesday, 16 November. Everyone is invited to come along and hear some great speakers throughout the season. Please let me know by Sunday night that you will be attending. Then we have our Annual Pot Luck Lunch at Taylor Park on Saturday, 19 November. Show up between 1000 hrs and 1100 hrs (10:00 - 11:00 am). We'll have the Annual "In Here Dummy" competition going on, as well as a couple of new games to try you luck/skills at. Bring some of your favorite dish to share. Hot Dogs and Sausages will be provided and cooked to perfection by Ben. Remember to have some cash for our Share the Wealth program. Keep you libations discreet. We need to know by the meeting Monday how many will attend. Thursday, 24 November is US Thanksgiving. We are fortunate to be able to enjoy two Thanksgiving Celebrations by being Snowbirds. We feast with American friends. Should you wish to join us, let me know. HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!!
