Ladies and Gentlemen FALL IS HERE! We have a lot of great events planned for the month of October bring out your families and friends; while you’re at it bring your friends families to check out some of the great things happening this month. As always we could use volunteers so if you can spare a few hours let myself or HIPPO know, we would sure appreciate it! Friendly Reminder our monthly meeting is on the 14th, if you need help getting to the meeting or know someone who does, let me know and we will try to work out rides. Drink specials for members following the meeting. Also we have delinquent members and I would like to get everyone back current so if you need assistance with this let me know and I will help get you back up to date. With that I wish everyone a Happy & Safe October.

God Bless America, The American Service Member, and our very own Post 7570 Family!
