The annual Ladies Dinner will be Dec. 14th. Dinner will be served after a short Auxiliary meeting at 7pm. All
ladies are welcome. $15 for a prime rib dinner, baked potato, vegetable, roll, and dessert. Sign up and prepay
at the Canteen now! Rather than a gift exchange this year please consider bringing an item to donate to our
adopted unit or a non perishable item to donate to Northmont FISH.

Thank you everyone that came out for the quarter auction on November 11th. We raised over $300 for the
Dayton Wheelchair Vets Sports Team. What a great way to honor Veterans Day! Our next quarter auction will
be January 13th. Mark your calendars now.

I hope everyone had a Happy Turkey Day. Now its time for the Christmas season to occupy our time. It also
means we hve a busy month planned at our post. We have the Ladies party on the 14 th, we are looking for
volunteers to help cook and serve the Prime Rib Dinner. The Post Christmas party is Saturday the 18 th. New
Years Eve is also just around the corner. With the end of the year approaching, it also means that time is
running out to pay your dues if not already paid. Please pay the bartender on your next visit. Please don’t
risk losing your canteen privileges. Thank you all for your help and I want to wish everyone a very Merry
Christmas and a Happy New Year.
