Well it seems as though I have succeeded in upsetting some more people with some of the decsions I have made over the last couple of weeks. We have a member that works for a construction company, that was highly perturbed over my choice of concrete suppliers for the project in the back of the main building. I have hired a contractor to do this job and it was his recommendation to use the company I chose. I have also offended some other members with my incentive program that I started to help increase our membership. The program works like this-recruit a new member and get a $10.00 credit on the sweepstakes machines. I realize that the bartenders may have somewhat of an advantage because of their contact with the customers. All members have relatives, friends, neighbors that they can recruit. We have increased the overall membership by between 15 or 20 members. I'm not sure that any of these members will choose to be more than a card carrying member, but I hope to get some new people to help keep this post afloat.
Well you might know as soon as we get started on the wall it starts to rain. Ken got the footings dug in short order on Wed. Thursday, Chris started to set forms for the footings and sure as ???? it started to rain. I hope we can get started on Tuesday this week. I took a set of plans across the street to get a price on the trusses we will need to redo the gazebo but have yet to hear back from them. Friday we did get the permit from the County with no changes. Monday I did make the liquor order for the next two weeks it came late on Tuesday and was put away. We got back on our 1st & 3rd Karaoke schedule on Wed., had a fair amount of singers. Thursdays Wham- Bam Bingo and free lunch was a hit as always. Dave Dolan again donated extra beer chips as well as $20.00 worth of Queen of Hearts tickets. Friday's dinner fixed by the the Riders was very good. After dinner we did our search for the Queen. The lucky pick was Jeff, his pick was envelope #29. It was a close one, it was a red card it-was a Queen, but the wrong one. It was the Queen of Diamonds. Next weeks reward will be $4,500.00. Saturday was slow but again Dave Dolan came to the rescue Saturday night when he came and set up his stereo and partied on down celebrating his birthday. Happy Birthday Dave. Sunday was the Riders day to do breakfast. I understand some of the Riders were upset because I asked them to hold their meeting at the senior center. This was my call and I will call it For the Good of the Legion. The Jam session that took place in the hall all afternoon netted a cool $1,800.00 for the Post. It was a great afternoon of country music and everyone had a great time. Hope to have lots to report next week on the progress of our wall. Till then, stay dry.
Another week has gone by. Not a lot to report. First part of the week was pretty slow. As always we had a good turn out for lunch and Wham-Bam Bingo. Dave Dolan again came thru with extra chips and 20 dollars worth of Queen tickets. Friday Associated Re-Bar delivered our order of R-bar for the wall. I would like to thank them for their donation of $250.00 dollars off of the bill. Dave Clausen was the Sheriff for Friday nights hunt for the Queen. His pick was envelope #31, exposing the little brother, the Jack of Hearts. Close but no cigar. Not a whole lot going on Saturday. SAL had a great Breakfast on Sunday followed by their monthly meeting. The Super Bowl was a dud. A very low turnout for a very disappointing game. It looks like we will get started on the footings tomorrow. The backhoe arrived this afternoon and PG&E confirmed that there are no utilities where we need to dig. We have a Jam session on Sunday that is a memorial for a local long time musician. Come out and pay your respect and enjoy the music. We have a great night planned for Valentine Day, starting with a Prime Rib Dinner for only $12.00 dollars, we will have chicken for those that don't eat meat. At 7:00 we will do our Queen Draw followed by music provided by "Foolish Pleasure". I guess that's all for now
