The April 2, 2014 meeting opened at 7:00 P.M. with 18 members present, 7 of them Past
Commanders. We had a good meeting with some good information passed along and some
dates of events coming up this month.
                                                     
We had an Initiation Ceremony for Robert Babb an Air Force Veteran serving in Dessert
Storm.  Please welcome Bob to the Post.

Service Officer Ed Simpson reported things are still going good at the V.A. Hospital and
advised members to get their name in the System of the V.A.

Comrade Jack Cousino discussed a plan for rearranging the Kennedy  Room, by moving the
beer and pop machine into the back room,  this should free up some space in the Kennedy
Room.  A motion was made and passed to replace the mirror behind the bar, this should
help dress up the bar area.

Took nominations for Post Officers for Year 2014-2015. The election will be held at our next
meeting May 7.

Comrade Chris Stark made a motion,and it was seconded, to buy a 1/4 page ad in the
Mason School Spring Athletic Patron.

the Hospitalized Veterans. If you wish to go along we will be leaving the Post at 5:30 P.M.
