Comrades & Comradetts: Another month has come & gone. It’s been fairly busy with music & other activities at our post. The gun raffle was busy. I like to thank all the volunteers who helped at the door, selling 50/50 raffle, the Wall of Guns & bar backs. It would not have been possible without everybody’s help. From me personally, I really appreciate it. I would like to thank all the volunteers for their help on putting the Cabana Bar to sleep for the winter. There’s a lot of things to take care of taking it down & starting it up each year. For November we have a lot of good music scheduled for the month. Important dates to remember: 11/10 The Veterans Lunch, 11/16 Best Bet Band, 11/21 (Wed. before Thanksgiving) Linus Tate Band, 11/23 Western Night w/John Summers. So come on down for the monthly events. Have fun and be safe.

See you at the post.
