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.
