Weather Alert, Rider News, Aux Membership, and High School Patriotic Art Contest

Weather Alert: Post and canteen are closed today, 2/4/19, due to inclimate weather. Our post and auxiliary meetings have been moved to next Monday, 2/11, 6:30 pm. Stay home people! Below is the current WSDOT photo of 7th & SR-20 (that's at 7-11 & Starbucks/Thrive). Appears only one lane each direction is open on SR-20 and side streets are compact snow and ice. WSDOT camera: https://www.wsdot.com/traffic/cameras/OakHarbor.aspx?cam=9494

Rider News: The Riders have put on yet another successful Chili Cookoff. The winner this year was Darrell "Bugman" Small. A special thank you goes to the committee that made it happen: Greg "Trip" Sperry, Scott "Stain" Darnell, Jeff "Pig Pen" Williams, and Patrice "Bubbles" Williams. We took the opportunity to present $1000 to the Island County Opportunity Council in support of homeless and needy veterans and their families. The Opportunity Council is an organization that the Riders have vowed to assist financially in support of our comrades in need. Please remember to donate too, by placing non-perishable items in the donation box that's located in the Post foyer. Thank you to all that came out to support us in the Chili Cookoff! Respectfully, Dean "Whistler" McKinney, VFW Riders Charter One President

Auxiliary Membership Update: We need 20 new, rejoin, or renewals asap to make our 2018-2019 membership goal. (If you cannot afford renewing, please contact Kathi Naff or Teresa). You may give the gift of membership to a family member, which means you can sign them up for VFW auxiliary. Also, if you want an auxiliary next year, we need officers to fill important roles. You may join auxiliary as early as 16 and we can provide volunteer hours to fulfill graduation requirements. If you're interested or want to learn more, please contact Teresa 206.817.3533 simplytree@hotmail.com and see you at our next meeting.
