Good Day Everyone,

     Every week I try to highlight something good and positive. I had hoped to express how happy I am that the Love Bugs are finally gone but that is not going to happen because they are still here and smashing themselves all over my truck and bike on 528. I am looking forward to the day they are gone for a few months. Someone said they are actually good for something!

     Ah, yes, the good news, for those that missed it, last Wednesday we had our installation of Officers that will be assuming their positions at the end of June. The Auxiliary has a new President. If you did not know, "BIG JIM” (Ancil Thompson), will be taking over the Auxiliary from Madam President Kathy Tubbs. As with every position on both the General membership and the Auxiliary, we are all here to assist, help and ensure that our post is running like a finely tuned machine.

     For all of you casino/ boat loving people! See the bartender and get yourself signed up for the Casino Cruise on 27 July. You cannot beat this price and this includes transportation from and to the Post plus your meal on the ship as well as 20 dollars of play on the machines. You cannot go wrong on this cruise and it looks like the band for this particular cruise is a Beatles cover Band and word is they are pretty good. That itself would make the trip worth it, even if you do not gamble.

     We are trying something new on the 4thWednesday of the month. We are going to try "GAME NIGHT” it is exactly how it sounds. This could be cards, Left Right Center, Chutes and Ladders, Checkers, Chess, you name it, and it could be anything you want. Keep your eyes open for updates and plan on enjoying the 4th Wednesday with us.
