FROM THE COMMANDER: Fellow Legionnaires:  Things are looking good at the post.  I am learning a lot about being the new commander.  Please keep Steve Carper and his family in your prayers.  I would like to see more members attend the regular meetings.  Your opinion counts. 

FROM 1st VICE:  As you know, we have begun a new year at Post 11, and you should have received your 2017-2018 dues billing.  I would like to encourage you to pay your dues as soon as possible.  The sooner we have the majority of the dues received, the better, and I won't have to bother you about being a slow-poke.  Don't forget, members who take care of their dues now  are eligible for the Early-Bird dinner in November.  You don't want to miss that!  Thank you to all who have paid their dues and please keep them coming.  I am looking forward to serving you as your 1st Vice Commander this year and if I can serve you in any way, please let me know.

FROM 2nd VICE:  Thank you to everyone that attended my dad, Richard Carper's, Celebration of Life.  So many people donated their time and effort to honor my dad, who donated all his time, and loved this club.  I want to thank the burial detail  who performed a beautiful service and a special thank you to Al Hildinger for the touching music he played.  Michelle and I love and appreciate our American Legion family.f  Thank you for all the love and support through the most difficult time In our lives.

FROM 3rd Vice:  Our Post Commander, Louis Woodard, is still handling the ordering of the 4x8 bricks for past or present veterans or friends.  They are in front of the post by the flagpole.  The cost is $30.00 and an order form can be obtained from one of the bartenders.  When filling out the form, please use only the first 3 lines.

FROM THE SOCIAL ROOM:  Thanks to everyone that made all the holidays  special.  We can't thank you enough for all your help through the hog roast, parades, and ceremonies.  We can't do it without you.
     Changing officers is always an adjustment.  We want to give special thanks to the old and new officers for making it smooth.  We all have the same goal to keep making Post 11 prosper.
      We try to be creative about food and entertainment, but suggestions are always welcome.. The corn roast is August 26th, the $5,000 drawing night.  Check the board for additional functions please.  As always, thanks to our wonderful staff.
