WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE
Hanging up my Gambling Managers hat after so many years is hard, but the journey has been very rewarding. As many of you may be aware Jo Strong is taking over the helm as Gambling Manager III in our Post’s history.
So may lives have been touched by our very successful operation, and I see it remaining viable for many years to come. Many friends and acquaintance have been made, and I hope that I represented the Post Home in the best way possible.
Memories here include not only many friends, but different organizations that helped make Post 1776 what it is today. The Nooners Club, The Clown Club, the Early Bird Dinner, and not to be forgotten our yearly Post picnic that was held away from the Post Home, with the last away event at Thomas Lake Park in Eagan.
It’s a shame though to look at the Past Commanders on the west wall in the Club room and there are only a hand full of people that know many of the faces that made our Post history. Gary Shade is doing a lot to bring some of our history to life.
Lastly Thank you for your support in the past and in the coming years. Marv Jarvis Past Commander/Gambling manager.
