MEN’SAUXILIARY PRESIDENT’S CORNER by Joshua Haugen

Summer time, summer time, summer time. I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather we are having even though it always seems to happen during the week and not on the weekend.

I would like to thank everyone for their support this last year with all of our breakfasts we served, as well the help we received from the Junior Girls. We are always trying to improve on how we serve and what we serve to keep everyone one happy. If anyone has any suggestions for our breakfast please feel free to contact myself or any member of the Men'sAuxiliary.

This year's Cowboy Up Kick-Off was our best year yet just edging out last year's donations, thanks to everyone one for coming out and enjoying the pulled pork dinner and the silent auction. The Men's Auxiliary still looks to be the largest single donator to the Cowboy Up Ride Against Cancer. The Cowboy Up Ride raises money all year long for the ROGER MARIS CANCER CENTER. I hope to keep that tradition going with everyone's support I believe we can do just that.

President Men'sAuxiliary Josh Haugen

With the 4 of July fast approaching I wish you all a safe and fun holiday!

th

The Club will be open its regular hours on the 4 . We will have $1.50 Beers from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will be having Windsor Wednesday from 4 p.m. to close for only $2.00. There will be a special Bingo session that will start at 2:30 p.m. and regular Bingo will be held for the evening session.

The Ladies Auxiliary will be doing hot dogs, brats, burgers, beans and potato salad from 1:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. right from the grill on the deck.

We have also started something new and that is soup and a sandwich on Friday evenings , Saturday from open to 7 p.m. and on Sundays from open to 7:00 p.m. We still will be offering chili on Saturdays. The cost for a bowl of soup and sandwich is $5.00. A bowl of soup and a half of sandwich is $4.00. Just a bowl of soup is $2.50 and a sandwich alone is $2.50. The chili is the same $2.00 and with cheese and onion $2.50 We still have great pizzas done right at the bar.

I have received numerous calls regarding Monday Night Burgers. We will continue this all summer. Come down early as it gets quite busy. Tuesday Night is Taco Night from 1pm- 7:30. We have added a Taco Burger and a Burrito to the menu. Thursday Night is our famous Steak or Shrimp Night which includes a drink with your order. For the prices you can't cook at home that cheap. The deck is open all the time unless there is something going on in the banquet room. I get many compliments how nice it is being outside on the deck so come enjoy while the weather is hot and sunny or even if it is raining as it is enclosed.

Thank you to all that come down and patronize the club. Hope to see many of you there!

In closing remember all of our Veterans that have served and the ones that continue to serve our country.

Loyally,

Crystal

COMMANDER’S CORNER

by Jason Hicks

July/August 2008 12 9 COMMANDER’S CORNER by Jason Hicks Greetings Comrades: As I write this it

Greetings Comrades:

As I write this it is hard to believe that summer is almost 1/3 past. As usual business at the club has slowed down considerably especially the weekends (This happens every summer). But there are still things going on. Parade season is here and currently we have five parades that the Post color guard and Ladies Auxiliary are marching in.

Look for new events at the club after the summer/lake season. Also if anyone has ideas of how we can improve things please tell me. Crystal Hughes does a great job running our club but likes suggestions; we have tried with lots of different things. But in my opinion there is always something that can be done better.

Also, if you get a chance, please stop by the American Legion and look at the new memorial it is truly a work of art and they did a great job with it.

In closing I would ask you to keep those serving in the Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers. Please enjoy your celebration of Independence Day and always remember that Freedom is NOT FREE.

Yours in Comradeship Jason

Memorial at Moorhead Legion
