Saturday June 24th is our annual picnic at Post 45, see attached flyer.  We have a short bus available to us which will pick us up at 72 taking us to post 45 for 1pm then leaving at about 4pm to arrive back in Southington.  There is no charge for the bus however $5 is requested from each of us for a tip for the bus driver as he is donating his time.  There is a signup sheet in the lounge so please stop down as soon as you can so we can get an accurate count for the bus company.

I have also included the color guard picnic at post 2 in July.  The cost of the picnic is $15, (tickets available in the lounge) and we have a free bus which will pick us up at post 72 bring us to post 2 then bring us back later that afternoon.  There is no charge for the bus but we would like to get $5 from each person as a tip for the bus driver.  There is a signup sheet in the lounge so we know whether to get a 20-person bus or a 50-person bus so please stop down and sign up cause it’s going to be a blast and it’s for a great cause!

The legion family cookbook is available in the post lounge and it’s only $10.  Proceeds will be going to support VA&R and Children & Youth.  There really are some great recipes in it!
