You MIGHT get this before our December meeting at 7 p.m. on12/3.
With 2019 winding down there hasn’t been much happening locally, although we are very much looking forward to the new sign that is going up in the next week or two. Hopefully it will help us with attracting new members and new customers.
As Larry mentioned, the Steak Fry on the 14th is ours to host and, as usual, we can use some help.
The Riders Christmas Party is this coming Friday, the 6th.
Whether you know it or not, AMVETS has assumed a lead role in preventing veteran suicide in our county. Nationally, AMVETS launched the HEAL program in 2018. HEAL (healthcare, evaluation, advocacy, legislation)

They have announced the public release of AMVETS Suicide Prevention & Crisis Intervention Course for SEAL Ambassadors.
