You may have noticed the “Donate Button” at the top of this page. This feature allows anyone who is interested in easily making a tax-free donation to the Post to safely do so using a credit card or a PayPal account, if you have one.

All the newsletter “authors” are in the process of adding updated information to their page, so click on the News links on the left column to see their new input. And, since we are not sending out the paper newsletter any more, check as often as possible for new info. Note that each page will have new input on the top, but, if you scroll down the pages, their earlier input will still  be available in case you missed it!

The Queen of Hearts raffle continues to be  a BIG draw on Tuesday.. We are very close to having $12,500 in that game with 70% going to a lucky winner who is present. Many thanks to Wayne and Susie for keeping that going and entertaining us as well.

Also on this website are the current menus for the Club. Tom Paul has been working hard to assure that we have a great selection of menu items for a good price available at most times that we are open for business. His daily specials are economical and taste good. Come give them a try.

I am very happy to say that we have a new Adjutant, Mark Granholt. He is often in the front office and is quickly becoming an indispensable Post member! Stop in to meet him and pay your 2017 dues while you are there.   We have many opportunities for everyone to serve on committees that interest them. Just let me know!

Stay cool and remember that it IS cool at the Post!

Update on Post 44’s Financial Planning

To build an Endowment Fund, we are developing an agreement with a national charitable foundation to address major gifts that may be given to Post 44. This program will involve gifts of appreciated assets: real estate, stocks, businesses, artwork, etc. that will face major capital gain taxes when sold conventionally. When donated and sold through the foundation, all capital gains taxes and sales commissions can be avoided and donors can receive significant benefits while helping the Post. Also, large tax deductions and lifetime annuities can be provided which can well exceed whatever income the assets now provide.

We are planning to hold informational meeting in early November for anyone who might benefit from such an opportunity. Information will be provided later in the year, or stop by or call the office if you have questions.
