Hi Comrades!

  We had a pretty good turnout.  There were 18 members present, 6 of them past
commanders. Mike Santure brought in his very good chili. Thanks Mike!

We installed two new members into our post.  Welcome aboard Joe Kibert and Charles
Berlin, better known as Skip.

Sadly we had to drape the charter for two of our comrades; Mike Grodi (a past
commander) and Twyford Martin. May they rest in peace.

Chris Stark made a motion to buy 100 new folding chairs for the hall.  The old chairs are to
be sold.

Tom Sancrant made a motion to buy heavier coats for the comrades who show up at
funerals.  A committee was formed (Terry Rollins, Dick Brazeau and Tom Sancrant) to get
prices. Hope to have that done soon. It’s getting pretty cold out there.

We will be needing help with the muskrat cleaning on January 28th and 29th. All help is
welcomed no matter how small.

Silent auction items are needed for the muskrat dinner. Items can be dropped off at the hall
or contact Dick Brazeau at 734-848-4784 or Tom Sancrant 734-848-9940 for pickup.

Muskrat dinner tickets are on sale, if you need tickets call Tom Sancrant 734-848-9940.

Gun raffle is going good, we have all money that is due and only 8 tickets remain to be sold.
If you need tickets, call Terry Rollins 734-848-8664 or Dick Brazeau at 734-848-4784.

Tom Merce has embroidered Post ball caps for sale.

The wooden cane that Ed Simpson displayed during September is still available. If anyone
would like one made for them, contact Ed Weaver to see if you qualify for it.

Next District meeting is February 6th in Ann Arbor.
