On November 23, 2022 we met with the gentlemen from Chapter 13 of Disabled American Veterans.  They are the recipient of the funds raised through our annual golf tournament. This years tournament allowed us to donate $2910.40 to their chapter which will allow them to fund resources for the Veterans in our local area!  They were amazed at the thoughfulness of the donation and the sheer size of our hall!

We would like to congratulate one of our Trustees Joey and his wife on their new bundle of joy!  Thank you to our Financial Secretary Shelly for her great idea of having a surprise Baby Shower for them in between monthly membership meetings!
