It’s time for a Post update. We have not had much luck fishing so no impromptu fish fries yet. I see it being a possibility in August.
Saturday Burgers or brats have been great. This past meeting we turned over $1,300.00 to the Post Finance officer to deposit for Post use. This Saturday we will have a rare treat for our patrons. Recently I made a few dozen brats with venison I had left mixed with pork and beef. I will be grilling these homemade brats in place of our regular “Johnsonville” brats. That is this Saturday July 26th. Not to brag to much but I make pretty dang good brats!
Post annual membership dues has been discussed at our last 2 meetings. We have decided to keep our annual dues at $25. Most every other post in the country will raise their dues to $30 or more if they have not already. We are hoping to have a better retention of members by staying at $25 per year.
AMVETS Post 7 Auxiliary cook book; Plans are in the works for a new cook book. I understand it has been ten years or so since the last one. Get your recipes together. That means Post members as well as Auxiliary members round ‘em up. Keep an eye out for an email address to send them to or send them through this site to me. We hope to have books ready before Christmas!
October 4th we will hold our 2nd annual “Bison Tailgate Party” along with the 3rd annual “Grill Masters Challenge” in our AMVETS parking lot. I won the grill challenge last year so come down and dethrone me!
Lastly but certainly not of the least, “Finding the Face of Compassion in WWII”; this is a documentary in the making. Fargo AMVETS has been contributing to this project. The Board members and I think it is a great thing. The Clay County Historical Society (HCSCC) is on the project. They are still looking for donations to help finish. All donations are tax deductible and need to be clearly marked as “WWII Documentary” in the memo line. You may contact Stephanie Manesis at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
You may view a sample of the footage by visiting this private Youtube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POqfnYxHEjQ
Also there has been talk from a major TV corporation wanting to show this as a mini-series.
