November 2013

Welcome to fall! Any of you snowbirds that want to invite a winter hater to accompany you, let me know. Our sympathies go out to the family of Don Skare who passed away last week. Don was a long time member of our post and did anything asked of him, especially painting. I wish a speedy recovery to Dennis Dancker who is new to our sick call list. I want to thank Kristy Schnabel for sharing her expertise and donating her time to tea...Read More

Fall is just around the corner and I hate to think about the ice and snow coming but I guess it is inevitable. On Friday, September 27, there will be an informational meeting on veterans’ benefits with several speakers from Dane County Wisconsin Veterans Affair, VA Hospital and Legion State headquarters. This will be held at the Cress Center, 6021 University Ave. We will be carpooling from the Post at 12 noon. There will be no cha...Read More

Well, the building raffle went without a hitch. Rick Sawyer, who lives in McFarland, won the grand prize. We were able to sell all the tickets and we had a full house with delicious food and beverage. Thanks to everyone who helped with cooking, serving, dishwashing, etc. It could not have been done without you. A list of all the winners is posted on the bulletin board in the lounge. The new ceiling in the hall made a big differenc...Read More

Thanks to everyone for your help with the chicken BBQ. We sold almost 500 dinners which we considered a success. Although I was unable to be here because of prior vacation plans, all reports are that the chicken was superbly cooked by our competent grilling staff. Thanks to Paul, Denny, Russ and all the rest of the help. On a personal note, Karen and I want to express our sympathy to Linda Coon and Tori Cooper for the loss of Julie (Linda’s da...Read More

I can’t thank everyone enough for the great job you did for the Legion Raffle. It was a great success because of everyone from the ticket sellers, cooks, bartenders, kitchen help, wait staff and all who helped. All the tickets were sold by Thursday except for one and we sold that Saturday morning. I think that is the first time in many years all the tickets were sold that early. The big winner was Justin Matthews. Congratulations, Justin. Seve...Read More

We had our installation of officers on June 22 and as I start my 2nd term (3rd if you count ’95-’96), I would like to thank you for the tremendous support you gave me last year. It is easy to do the job when you get that kind of support. I’m sure the coming year will be another success. I need your help to buy or sell our raffle tickets before August 11. We have to sell ALL the tickets (200). Tickets are available at the lounge. It is a lot of...Read More
