There were 10 members present at the group’s Sept. 19 meeting with Cmdr. Noel Abbott presiding.
Abbott reminded members of the highway cleanup project scheduled for Saturday. Members should meet at 9 a.m. at the Washington Department of Transportation building in Clarkston for their assignments. He also reminded members of the Oct. 19 chili feed at the Sonary Crest clubhouse.
Abbott said the 7th District Cmdr. James Woomack will visit the post’s October meeting, and president of the 7th District auxiliary, Quest Holbrook, also will attend.
Members discussed raising money to benefit the Field of Dreams ballfield in Clarkston, and the topic will be discussed again at the next meeting.
