Yours in Comradeship,
I would like to thank everyone who helped with the yard sale. Being there, donating items and of course spending your money. Without your support we couldn't have done it!! I also would like to thank the people who helped at the district meeting. With the cooking, setting up the tables and mostly cleaning up.
Remember you have till the end of the month to get your discount on your dues. In our Oct. meeting we will be drawing for our lifetime membership. But, you have to pay your dues early to get your name in the pot!!
The Ladies have lunch the second Sunday in Oct. This will be the last time until after the holidays. I need your help ladies... This like everything else should be a team effort. If you have a favorite dish bring it, if time is an issue and you would like to donate money to help with the cost or donating some food. Anything would be appreciated; whatever you can spare...I would rather see everybody donating a little bit, than some donating a lot. But, most importantly your support on Sunday.
We are still raffling off the fish tank for Cancer Aid. Get your tickets it's for a great cause.
Oct. 29th we will have a Halloween Party!! Dress up and you could win some money. First place $25, second place $15, and third $10. Judging will be at 10pm.

I would like to thank all who has been helped with the Labor Day Barbeque and the District Meeting. I would like to also thank those who have been doing Burger Night and Door Duty.
We still need help with the Coastal Carolina Fair. Please sign up to help. We will soon have a major cleaning of the Fair Booth and can use all the help we can get. I know we have been asking for a lot of help lately but this is our busiest time of the year. Thanks to all for making the canteen a better place to come and enjoy ourselves.
Karaoke Thursdays, from 7-10pm. Come out and watch people having fun and being goofy. Or be goofy yourselves and have fun singing and laughing.
Thanks to all who supports the post.
