AUXILIARY NEWS:
Good morning ladies,
  
A short note as we just had our meeting and most things were discussed at that time. We have the yard sale in July so you can get all your goodies up to the hall before the 28th. The state convention will be over before you read this so will report on that next newsletter. I hope you all are having a good start of summer. Till next month, I hope all is well with everyone.
As always, Dodie (207) 975-6015

SAL NEWS:
   I think summer has arrived, and with that in mind, we are going to be busy at Post 1. 
  
SAL would like to thank everyone who purchased raffle tickets for the Red Sox/ Mariners game on June 24th. The winner was Aaron Bubier form Waldoboro. We are going to need volunteers to man the dunk tank that SAL is getting for the August 4th visiting ship, the USS Hue City. PLEASE HELP!!
  Also, we still have a NASCAR BUD JACKET that we will be raffling off with the drawing being the last week in July. To purchase, you can ask anyone of the elected officers or you can buy them directly from Gary. The Post needs VOLUNTEERS! If you can spare some time, please look at the board and see what event may best fit your schedule.
Yours in Service, Don Litz, SAL Commander

MEMORIAL WALL PROJECT:

Looking for donations of cars, trucks, or boats and or anything else!! Any Condition!

The Midcoast Area Veterans Memorial has well over 300 etched granite tiles on our Memorial. After many years, the grout between the tiles is breaking down and falling out and staining the tiles mounted below them. The grout needs to be removed and replaced with a silicone based grout that will withstand the environment. We need to raise money to make this happen. Your donation will help with this project and it is even tax-deductable. Please contact Mike McNeil at 207-542-4802 or michaelmcneil08@gmail.com. Thank you!
