ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS
2016 was a good year for fund raising and having new members come on board and get involved. Obviously, the highlight was the 2nd Annual Block Party where we raised $16,000.00 for the VFW Unmet Needs Program. Shortly, we will begin planning the 3rd Annual Block Party. Many ideas are floating around, so if you have an idea, we would love to hear it. Our goal this year, is to have 4 or 5 fund raising events scheduled that we would do every year, same time each year and placed on the Fiscal Calendar Year (June-May) The Block party is one that will always take place the week-end after Labor Day.
We were excited to get a little bit of press these past few weeks for our Meat Raffle. The more information we can get out to the public well in advance of the event, the better chance we have of advertising it to much more people in the area. Our Facebook page and website are doing very well, but we realize that not everyone is into Social Media. To those who are more connected to Social Media, please pass along any information about upcoming events or just to say hello, haven’t seen you in a while, how are you?
• January 7th-Annual Eagles Christmas Party. Cocktails at 5:30, Dinner at 6:30 featuring Shrimp and Steak. The sign-up sheet is at the club-$8 for members and $9 for non-members. For those who wish to participate, we will have a gift exchange. Spending limit is $10, mark for a Man or Women.
• We are scheduling two dates to run the Gordy’s Brat Stand in the summer. Dates will be announced when they are confirmed.

We value every one of our members and hope to keep you all involved, no gift is too small to be recognized. We hope everyone had a great holiday and are looking forward to the new year.
Happy New Year everyone. Let’s make 2017 an even better year than 2016.
