from the Men’s Auxiliary Meeting, December 11, 2014

Gentlemen,

Our December meeting was attended by 7 determined members; and in lieu of Red’s
vacation, was conducted by past president, William (Bird) Terry.  Possible New
Year’s resolution: Attend a meeting or two during the course of the next year; we
need your input.

Frank Connolly submitted a report on the Christmas Dance, which as you know, was
held on Saturday, December 6th.  With the decorations in place, the hall looked very
festive and along with the great music and food, it made for a wonderful party.  
Many of those in attendance offered rave reviews.  Thanks to Frank and all who
assisted with its undertaking.  Much time and effort was put forth to make it a
success.

The new ice maker we purchased for the Kennedy has been installed.  Thanks to all
who helped.

On Saturday the 13th, the annual Ladies’ Auxiliary Kid’s Christmas parade and party
will take place.  Some of our members will assist during the parade, with cooking, etc.

As is traditional for this time of year, our members approved motions to donate to
the following worthy causes: Toys for Tots, the local Food Bank, and the USO.  We
are reminded that this is one of the reasons for our existence and thus the
importance of our fund raisers to allow us this opportunity.

A discussion was held regarding the possible purchase of a shuffle board for the
Kennedy Room.  Of course, this would require approval by the Post members.

As a reminder, the next Lucky 100 raffle began on Friday, January 9th.  This has
been an appreciated social event for both auxiliary’s and the Post’s members.  
Please make an effort to come out and mingle.

A reminder: Membership fees for 2015 are becoming due.  Beginning this year, we
have the option of a one-time lifetime payment.  I will be mailing out a reminder in
the next few weeks which will include the prorated lifetime membership costs, based
on the participant’s age.  Yearly payments also remain an option.

Our next meeting will be held at the Post on Thursday, January 8th at 7:00pm.  
Don’t forget to visit the Post’s website, erievfw.com, for upcoming events and the
like.   
Respectfully,

Mark Dusseau, Secretary, VFW Post 3925 Men’s Auxiliary
