Hi Comrades!

We had a pretty good turnout.  There were 17 members present, 6 of them past
commanders. The meeting was held in the Kennedy Room because of the floors being
waxed for the dinner Saturday. Great job done by Red Sulier and John Conley on the floors.
Thanks guys! A great meal was provided by the Auxiliary. Thank you very much!

Gun raffle tickets still available, contact Cmdr. Rollins 734-497-5330, very limited available.

Please keep those comrades in distress and their families in your prayers

Thanks to all who worked and donated blood at the blood drive. It was a great success.

We usually donate money to the Cancer Relief Fund of Michigan. It was decided that this
year we would give a portion of the money to 3 comrades from our Post who are battling
cancer.  Helping our Post members is always important and is what makes this Post great!
Thanks guys!
