Well here I am almost on schedule. Have yet to hear back from the engineer will be calling him tomorrow. Went to talk to the fire sprinkler people. They could not believe that they would want to have them in a Gazebo. Mike ,the owner is going to call the fire Commander to see what he can due to help us out. If required we are looking in excess of $20,000.00. There went our gazebo. All in all it was a very disappointing week. To start, Jerry Sanchez, acting as sheriff on Friday night, let that Queen get away again. His pick was envelope #57 which held the 2 of clubs. This weeks reward $1,900.00 Saturday's Riders event turned out to be a big disappointment. The sign up for the ride was way down, and to top it off the tables for the casino night did not show so it had to be canceled. The band was pretty good but I don't think they were worth $500.00. We have all new people running the post and its going to take a while for everyone to figure out what they are suppose to be doing. Sunday's NASCAR winners were Monk for $125.00 and 12 points San Jose [John] 2nd for $75.00 and 10 points The dollar board winners were Deli Bob and Victor twice for $40.00 ea. I think that's about it for this week. Don't forget the parking lot sale, SAL fund raiser and the horseshoe tournament coming up on Sat. June 28th. Sign up with Ellen for spots in the lot sale Contact any SAL member for the Horseshoe's Pete has some great looking plaques for the winners.
Well I don't know where I should start other than it's been a very rough week. We have been waiting for some results from the building Dept. Well I got them on my birthday, the worst birthday present ever. For some reason the plans were sent out for review, came back with seven pages of needed changes before a permit can be issued. I took a copy to the engineer, his response was you have to believe you are working with idiots. Went to the building dept. and their response was why did the plan review get outsourced. The engineer is working on a response to be e-mailed to the county. will have to wait and see what happens . I will try to get a appointment with Calcagno's office to see if he can be any help. The week went pretty fast. We had a very nice Thursday, along with Wham- Bam Bingo we had a lunch and free drinks provided by Margit in rememberance of Jim. Friday was the ALR night to cook dinner, did a nice job. Regina was the sheriff for the night, her attempt to find the Queen failed. Her envelope was # 20, if the Queen had been there she was long gone, this weeks reward will be $1,700.00. Again we had music after the draw. Saturday the hall was rented for a wedding reception, they did a great job decorating. Sunday was ALR breakfast then their meeting followed by a pot luck for one of their riders that was leaving. After all that we had installation of the new incoming officers for the Legion, AUX, SAL and the Riders . Hope to hear something on the permit next week.
Before I start I would like everyone to read the poem that Ellen wrote about Jim I will post it at the end of the blog. If you new him it will make you cry.
