AUCTION I am freaking out! We have less than 1.5 months to go before fall auction and we need a ton of volunteers!!! Our regulars are taking a step back this year for a variety of reasons: health, spouse care, aging, burnout. working full time, and more. If you are able to help in any capacity, please contact me asap. Join our active 3% this Monday evening at 630 pm.

RIDER NEWS
Riders have had another successful Pancake Breakfast! We are thankful to all of those that came out to support us in raising money for the USO. For those that didn't, well... you missed out on a delicious breakfast. We would like to thank our Post Canteen Manager, Kevin, for helping us by making the tickets, and cooking. Great job! We don't have much going on in October, but a couple of exciting things coming up in November. We'll tell you about that in the next letter. Until then, be well and be sure to help one another.
