Come on spring!

The last couple of months have really created some serious cabin fever symptoms. I want to thank everyone who could make it to our Wednesday Dinners and Drawing Nights. We made it through the worst of the weather, and three days of closing, in good shape. In addition to better weather, we will be having some events at the Post. On March 1st we’ll be hosting a Shuffleboard Party. Sign in at 1:00 pm with games starting at 1:30 pm. March 8th will be our annual Bar Olympics with the public invited and on March 22nd a Pool Event with cool music and Karaoke with the public invited. April 5th Shuffleboard Party, open to the public, and April 26th a Euchre Party, also open to the public.

The months of April and May will include nominations and elections for Post and Auxiliary Officers. Want to get involved? Have some ideas to keep our post a great place for members and guests. “Step up” and get yourself “nominated!”. Active Officers and Committee members will keep our Francis Vinyard Post 2749 vibrant and enoyable for all.

Finally, just a couple administrative notes. First, the House Rules have been updated over the last couple of months. The current issue is posted above our Guest Register at the northwest entrance to the Canteen. Please note that when a member signs in a guest or guests, the member must sign his or her full name in the member column. Nicknames or partial names may get questioned if Excise or other authorities come in to review our procedures.
