The Worthy Prez sez….
Fall is upon us. The beautiful summer weather went by so fast!! As I write
this, I sit by my fire pit, having a beer or two and enjoying a fire. I
cleaned the yard; had a fun conversation and enjoyed the beautiful fall day.
I would like to thank Larry b. and our Entertainment Committee for the great
bands and D.J.’s we enjoyed this summer. It was a little expensive but well
worth the money according to the feedback I received from the members.
Entertainment is about done for now except for Kountry Klass playing at the
adult Halloween Party on Saturday, October 26th. August was wild with
storage wars, pig roast and red neck horseshoes. What a great crew it took
to put on all these events. Thank you!! Our Friday Fish Fry’s are coming
along nicely, making good money but we need some new volunteers to help. The
Auxiliary Labor Day weekend Steak Fry was wonderful. The steak and corn had
rave reviews. Don’t forget Sunday darts have started back up at 1 pm; Monday
darts at 7 pm; Aerie work party the 2nd Wednesday of every month; Polish
Fest October 5th – awesome Polish food and the Adult Halloween Party October
26th with the Kountry Klass Band for entertainment. AND, AND, AND the
Michigan – Michigan State game, November 2nd – game time 1 pm – be early and
get ready for some fun!!!

Aerie Chaplain Report
Get well cards were sent to Marty Drabek, who was in a terrible motorcycle
accident; hope you are feeling a little better each day. Sympathy cards were
sent to the following members, Gordy Gardner, on the passing of his sister,
Mike Sanborn on the passing of his wife and to Judy Munch on the passing of
her husband, Dennis. Please remember these members in your prayers. Marion
Beasley and Arnie Bartlett were in and out of the hospital so fast I didn't
send them a card but we are glad they are doing fine. As the snowbirds leave
please be safe in your travels and have a healthy winter!
We would like to welcome Bob Boroff back as Trustee. Don’t forget our Fish
Fry the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month from 5 – 8 PM, Euchre Tournament the
3rd Friday of the month, Keep an eye on the Website and special event
postings in the club because a lot of events that are going on may not get
in the newsletter because of timing with the two month calendar. We want to
accommodate our members by cashing their checks but has business slows it is
hard to keep the cash needed for daily business. Just a few reminders - In
order to expedite delivery of your food orders, please remember to provide
the table number you are sitting at whenever placing any food orders and
children must be accompanied by an adult when playing pool. Remember the
club when you are going out for a cocktail or some food and a never ending
problem – please do not prop doors open due to the air conditioning being on
or heat. Finally, it takes all the support of our members to maintain our
Aerie so if anyone has anything to raffle for the club or ideas to make
money for the club, please come forward. Thanks again, to all the function
and work party volunteers.
IMPORTANT UPDATES & THANKS
The bar grill will be closing at 8 pm during the week in the winter. Deep
fry orders will still be taken.
Board of Trustees
Stuffed Potato Dinner
Thanks to everyone for supporting the tater dinner and to all my volunteers.
Just a note to thank everyone who baked or bought something at our August
bake sale. You made it a success!!
Red Neck Horsehoes
Redneck Horseshoes was a success again this year. We had a total of 21 teams
with Howard and Terry taking first for the second year in a row. Claude and
Mary came in second with Bill and Sharon taking third. The weather was
perfect and a good time was had by all. The tournament takes place the third
Saturday in August which is the same day as the Pig Roast. We will probably
need a few new toilets this next year due to a few of them getting pretty
well cracked up due to all the plungers hitting them. If you have an old
toilet or see one, we could use them. Just take it to the Eagles club over
by the garage and let us know it is there so we can put it away. Thanks so
much for all the participation and hope to see you again next year.
