in everyone's Christmas plans. After getting off work, Joyce and I drove to Dixon to spend Christmas with the kids. The Post had a very nice dinner thanks to all of the the members who voluntered in the kitchen. Due to the holiday falling when it did there were no dinner plans for Wednesday or Friday nights. We did have a great lunch and played Wham Bam Bingo on Thursday. Friday night we did our drawing for the Queen of Hearts. Judy Sousa's name was drawn and her choice was card #5 and again the Queen escaped discovery. The reward for this coming Friday will be $3,000.00. As we have reached another $1000.00, the Joker's are now worth $100.00. Also, someone present will win a $100.00 on the ticket draw. Saturday started out fairly routine but buy night fall we realized that the 2nd Vice had made no provisions for the New Years Eve Party. Sunday we got an early start at putting together a menu and went shopping. We purchased most of the finger food and made arrangements to pick up the chickens on Monday morning.
Sunday night Daniel and I did the monthly inventory, while enjoying our last scheduled Jam Session. Monday was a early start with lots to do. Vic got right on moving the pool table and setting up the tables and chairs. Dina, Joyce and Jeannie were busy decorating of the hall, they did a beautiful job. All in all, I think
the place looked great. The night went off without a hitch. The food, music and
customers were all great. The bar had a very profitable evening. I wish everybody a great New Year. Let me remind you that the bartenders will be checking your 2013 cards. No current card--no service.
