Annual Picnic at Bruce VFW Post

EVENT: 425th Regimental Association, Meeting & Annual Family Picnic.

WHEN: Saturday. 30 July 2011 / Family Picnic starts at 1100 hrs / Business meeting will be held at 1500 hrs.

WHERE: Bruce VFW Post / 28404 E. Jefferson Ave,   St. Clare Shores, MI (Located between 11 & 12 Mile Roads)

As in the past, the 82nd Association will be supplying hot dogs, hamburgers, condiments, paper plates, utensils, and beer.

NOTE: that this is still a pot luck and those attending are encouraged to bring a dish to pass.

There will be games for the kids, so you are also encouraged to bring a prize to donate (possibly something from the dollar store) for kids up to age 12.

At present there will be a skydive demo jump between 1300 and 1400 hours.  The 82nd will be running a closest to the pin raffle where for $5 you can buy a measurement (in increments of two inches).

If you pick the closest skydiver to the target you will win 50% of the money taken in.  The skydivers volunteer their jump to help the 82nd Association but the Jump aircraft and fuel are not free so this pays for their expenses.  Make as many guesses at 5 bucks per as you wish.

There will also be the 82nd Associations annual 50/50 raffle tickets on sale to help defray the picnic expense.    The drawing date is October 3rd during the meeting at the Bruce Post .  Ticket prices are $1 per ticket. You need not be present to win.

David Lincicome will be at the picnic selling our new line of  EMBROIDERED hats, shirts, and  license plates. (All proceeds go to the 425th Association fund)

Dean Burchilll has just ordered a new batch of our newly minted 425th Regimental Association challenge coins and will be selling them as well.  (Don’t have one? Better buy one or be prepared to do a lot of pushups)   (All proceeds for coins also go into our 425th Association fund.)

The 425th Regimental Association will have their business meeting at 1500 hrs inside the Bruce Post like we did last year.  An agenda will be provided at a later date.

This is our biggest event of the year and we are looking forward to a large turnout and a lot of fun for everyone.  As usual please leave all explosives, claymores, grenades, bayonets, machine guns and brass knuckles at home.
