I hope this letter finds everyone doing well.
In the beginning of November, we had the Home Depot work team come in and repaint Heritage Hall and the Hall front entrance. They also changed all of the ceiling tiles and painted the grid. Four new doors were hung in Heritage Hall. Home Depot also donated a new refrigerator for the upstairs kitchen and a new stove and freezer for the kitchen downstairs in out Fox Hole Lounge. Also donated to us were enough ceiling tiles to replace the one in the Fox Hole. My thanks go out to the guys who helped: Dave Rogers, George Egan, Jim Shine, Pete Palamidis, and “Top” Parente.
On Thursday, December 7th, 6:00, we will be having a Christmas Dinner, followed by a short meeting at 8:00. Our Auxiliary is also invited to attend. We will be having a special presentation from Dr. Steve Brook, a local podiatrist who is new in the area. He will be making a large donation for a new commercial stove, which is desperately needed for the Heritage Hall kitchen. We also received a donation from Paul Wekerle Insurance who saw us on the Chamber of Commerce Facebook Page to use wherever we felt it was needed. I hope everyone can attend this meeting to show our thanks to Dr. Brook for his generous donation to our post. Please let me know if you need a ride for our Christmas Sinner and special meeting. On December 10th, 9:00 – 12:00, we will be having a Pancake and Eggs Breakfast fundraiser. I would appreciate any assistance in making this a success. Please let me know if you can help.
Our prayers go out to Jim and Lillian Orban, Wynn and Ida Davis, and Ed and Pat Sacco for good health. My apologies go out to all who showed up for dinner at our November meeting. Because of all the work that was needed to be done in Heritage Hall by some of our members, I cancelled the dinner at our October meeting.
May you all have a truly blessed Thanksgiving. Remember to keep our troops and their families in your prayers during this holiday season. May God continue to bless them and God Bless America.
Your Commander, George Barrett.
