The October D.E.C. has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 8th at Post 33. A Saturday meeting is not usual but in this case, it’s the only way a D.E.C. could be held at Post 33.
Our next Post meeting will be Sunday, October 16th at 9AM. The holiday season is quickly approaching and we always gets busier with events and activities at the post and in town. Friday night game nights remain very popular. We also have poker.
And the wait is about over, only one more game for the New England Patriots without Tom & Gronk; then NFL football for Patriot fans will really take off. Regardless of the schedule and when the Patriots play, every Sunday is NFL Sunday which features happy hour prices and complimentary munchies each Sunday afternoon – regardless of who is playing. So come on in and join us for the party. If it ain’t tail-gate’n, then it’s the next best thing! Of course there will be 50/50 drawings help defray expenses.
Pick-3 Service Foundation calendars. They are on sale from each bartender. Don’t wait! Get yours while there are plenty to choose form. 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. Once again our bartenders 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!
The first benefit breakfast of the season is scheduled for Sunday, October 23 from 8 to 11 AM. Proceeds from this breakfast will be donated to the Wounded Warriors of Maine. It’s a very worthwhile cause and all the money stays right here in Maine. So come on out, get a generous breakfast and help out with a great cause. Of course, Veterans, Ladies, & Sons are always welcome to help out with breakfast duties. Wanna’ help? Check with Guy Guy; he will find a place for you.
Don’t forget, Veteran’s Day is just around the corner. As usual, many volunteers always make this a great event for Biddeford.
LADIES AUXILIARY NEWS
It’s official – Summer is over. What’s also may be coming to an end is the Post 1 Ladies Auxiliary. It is with deep regret and sadness that Madam President must inform the membership that Post 1 Ladies Auxiliary, the oldest active post in America, is on the verge of folding. This situation has resulted from lack of membership participation and a general unwillingness for others to step up and assume a leadership role. This Auxiliary has always supported our Veterans and all Veterans programs. Truly Sad if this ends.
On another note; Department officers are joining us October 5th at 6 PM for dinner and to share information about how things could happen without making some changes. A notice has been posted in the canteen for dinner sign-ups which enables us to have an accurate count for dinner.
Our Veterans have never failed us – let us not fail them. Please give this matter long and serious consideration and what’s in the future for Auxiliary #1. A good place to start is be attending this dinner and hearing what the department officers have to say. We have a great legacy – the oldest active Auxiliary in America and the member who has served longer than any other in America.
