**The following reports are supposed to be for ALL officers within Post 40. AMVETS, The Sons, The Ladies, & The Riders. PLEASE send in reports by the 19th of each month so that members may know what is going on and might be able to participate***
Sons of AMVETS
The Sons are ready to start the new year. If you have renewed prior to December 31st you car should be behind the bar, ask a bartender to check if it is there. Those who haven’t renewed for 2021 please do so promptly so we can get you processed. Sons of AMVETS meetings are held the first Monday of every month at 6:00 PM. Try to make it if you can.
Yay! We are now easing some restrictions from the Pandemic. This means we will be able to better serve our Veterans and neighbors. The spaghetti dinner sold out in an hour! Wow, great effort. Thank you Bonnie and team. We also enjoyed friends night, the Superbowl, and the Daytona parties. Thanks for all the yummy food and friendship. Our next meeting is March 9 at 630. We will be bringing side dishes to the trustees drawdown March 20. Please sign up. List on bulletin board. Betty Woolwine got a nice grill to raffle off. $5 a ticket. See her or get one at the post from the bartenders. The grill is there for your inspection. We continue to accept donations for the food bank, Rescue Mission, VA Hospital and any others you can bring to our attention. Miss Rhonda and team childcare will host a drive thru Easter Bunny event on April 3. Get your children signed up if you would like to join the fun. We continue Paint Nite once a month. Look for those dates and come get your creativity flowing. We are coming into the elections of officers this time of year. The Ladies Auxiliary has nominations from the floor on April 13th and reopens nominations on May 11 that goes to the vote. WE NEED YOUR HELP. All offices are open. Please consider running for office. We are all in this together. You do need to attend meetings regularly. More about this in March or ask any officer for guidance. Thank you all for your help in enriching the lives of our Veterans and neighbors.
Stay safe and well. Hope to see many of you on March 9.

The kitchen is doing well. Added a couple items and have extra surprises in the pot when Jeff Fowler comes to cook. Thank you Jeff. Dan and Mark and Mark and Cindy do a great job so come on out and eat with us on Fridays. Additional cooks and helpers are always welcome.
Hopefully we will be in spring weather now so please ride safely and look out for yourself and your friends. Hope to see you all on March 28.
