AMVETS!  It’s time to renew your dues – if you already haven’t.
Our next Post meeting will be Sunday, September 18th at 9AM.  September always gets busy with events and activities at the post.  Friday night game nights remain very popular so we’ve purchased a license which allows us to host Texas Hold-em poker.  Also, it’s New England Patriot football season again.  Watch for posters announcing Sunday afternoon Patriot games when we will once again provide complimentary snacks, a-la-tailgate!  Happy hour prices of course.  50/50 drawings help defray expenses.
Pick-3 Service Foundation calendars.  Each year, for the last five years, Post 1 has sold more calendars than any other post in the state of Maine.  But the competition is gaining ground and they have their sights set on knocking Post 1 out of first place.  As in the past, our bartenders will be selling the calendars.  And once again, they will be competing for generous gift certificates at local restaurants, all of which are donated by those businesses.  So step up and buy some calendars from you favorite bartender.  If you don’t have a favorite bartender, buy a calendar from each bartender!  That’s what most Post 1 officers do – just to keep the peace!
This fall’s breakfast schedule currently looks like this: October 23rd, November 20th, and December 18th.  As usual, proceeds from each breakfast are earmarked for selected charitable causes.  The October breakfast proceeds will be donated to the Wounded Heroes of Maine.
While we aren’t planning anything special in memory of 9-11, it’s noteworthy that this September marks the 15th anniversary of those horrific events of 9-11.
More importantly, what we should focus on are those first responders that paid the ultimate price in an effort to save others.
And of course, our thoughts for all those families who lost loved ones and family members.


Hello All!  Summer is starting to fade, leaves are beginning to turn, vacations are winding down or already over, and now we need to once again think about our Veterans and the various programs that deserve our attention more than ever.  Our first meeting of the this season is Wednesday, September 7th at 6:00 PM.  And next month, October 5th to be exact, Department of Maine AMVETS Ladies Auxiliary will be visiting us for dinner, social hour, and information sharing.  Lest we forget, Auxiliary #1 is the oldest active Auxiliary in the United States.  Hosting Department Officers is an honor and opportunity.  Please step up, sign up if you wish to attend, so we will have an amount to plan for.  Let’s rededicate ourselves to fulfill what it really means to be an Auxiliary member.  Let’s look forward to a great turnout and show we are really #1.
September also marks the beginning of our monthly dinners that we put on with the help of the Sons of AMVETS.  These dinners are an important source of income which enables us to support the charities that we do.

Summer’s almost done and it’s time to get back to the business of our fall activities.  Friday night horseshoes will continue for several more weeks – weather permitting.  Our meeting will be Sunday, September 18th at 10:00 AM.  Later that day we will team up once again with the Ladies Auxiliary to put on a chicken BBQ dinner.
