Comrades,

The March 5, 2014 meeting opened at 7;00 P.M. with 18 members present, 6 of them Past
Commanders. The meeting moved along very quickly with several issues being discussed.

We had an Intiation Ceremony for 2 new members Christian Williams, son of Roger Williams,
and Drew Bachi both Veterans served in Afghanistan. Please welcome them both to the
Post.

Service Officer Ed Simpson reported things were going good at the V.A. Hospital and he
advised members of the importance of getting their names in the System of the V.A.

Senior Vice Jim Cherry delivered the shirts, he designed for the Post, for members who
purchased them to pick up.

A motion was made and seconded to purchase a used portable Popcorn Popper, to be used
for special events such as the Card Party or Car Show.

Another motion was made and seconded to donate $100.00 to a Fund Raiser for Angela
Ferris, a 30 year old mother and a United States Air Force Veteran, who is battling
Advanced Pancreatic Cancer.

At our February Blood Drive  we collected 27 Units, 2 donors were Double Reds.

Saturday March 15, 2014 the Ladies Aux. will have a Card Party and Jiggs Dinner at the
Post, the thought of the cooked cabbage makes my mouth water.

If you know a Serviceman or Woman who is going to or returning from an overseas
assignment or if you have a message to be posted on the marques, leave me a message on
my home phone 734-242-8045.

Looking forward to seeing you at our April 2, 2014 meeting.

Eddie R. Weaver, Commander.
