       December 2016
Greetings Comrades,

     Wow this year is going by fast. Seems like just yesterday it was 90 degrees out and now we have had our first snow storm of the season.

     I hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday and are preparing for Christmas. Christmas time is that magical time of year where people seem to forget about what is ailing them and to go above and beyond to help their fellow man. Something that we Veterans do on a daily basis.

     Be extra careful this time of year when out driving. The roads are slippery and it seems that many of us Native Minnesotans just forget how to drive during winter. May we have an accident free year.

     At the Post: Our Veterans Day celebration was held and was attended by many. Mayor Baumann addressed us for the last time as the Mayor of South Saint Paul. We had two comrades they were POW’s one from World War II and one for the War in Korea. We had one comrade there that served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

     Our next Post meeting is December 14th at 7pm. The next Steak and Shrimp is the 16th, starting at 5pm. Fish fries are starting a little earlier this year as we have decided to start on January 6th. Meals are served each Friday from 11am to 1pm, and again from 5pm to 8pm. These fish fries are where the Post makes most of its income for the year. So please come down and support them. Maybe even bring a neighbor or two down with you.

     We are continuing with our Friday and Saturday meat raffles. The Post and the Auxiliary routinely work these when we have a cancellation. They are enjoyable. We could always use more people down for them. Where else do you have a chance to win a $20.00 meat pack for a dollar? The money raised goes to support the youth in our community.

     From my family to yours I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.
