First, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Aaron Aalbregtse, the new Prsident of the Men’s Auxiliary of Post 9400. I am honored and privileged to accept this position and hope that I can do the job to the best of my abilities.
I will start by givin our prayers to the families of two of our members that recently passed away: Robert Kellwood and Richard Mahoney. Their presence and services to the Men’s Auxiliary will be greatly missed.
As everyone knows, it takes a lot of work to keep things moving at the Post. The Men’s Auxiliary is vital to keeping it running. We need to have more members attending the monthly meetings. These are currently held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. We have many positions/chairs that need to be filled. These are required in order to have a quorum to conduct an official meeting. Without this, the Men’s Auxiliary cannot vote on any ideas that come on the floor.
If Tuesdays are not a good day for you to attend meetings, we are having a vote at our Oct. 15th meeting to discuss and/or change the meeting day to a Sunday (early) afternoon. This is the time for you to come and voice your opinion!
The Men’s Auxiliary is hosting their first Friday Night Dinner of the year on September 20th. Plans are still in the works and, as always, everyone’s help will be appreciated. Keep your eyes open for flyers and updates on the bulletin board.
Now is the time to renew your membership for 2013. Don’t forget about the Early Bird Breakfast in September. The date will be posted on the calendar in the Canteen. And don’t forget to thank Tom Yelovich for his Tuesday afternoon chili. It’s well worth a trip to the Post!
You can reach me at (602) 791-4265 after 5pm on weekdays, and all day on Saturday and Sundays. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
