If your membership card is stamped early bird, dinner is free. I will be taking dues until we start serving. Otherwise, dinner is $5.00. Please come out and support your Post. Oktoberfest was very successful, each group made $193.00. Thanks for your support. I’m going to be the Chairman for the Singles Thanksgiving Dinner on November 26 at 12:00PM. There is a sign up sheet in the Lounge for side items and helpers. I’m going to need a lot of help with this as we will have about 50 young sailors from NAS along with our members to feed and entertain. Please let me know what you can do to help.
