Fellow Members of the SAL and Post 180
A lot has happened since the last newsletter. Our building was sold and we dispensed out
funds from the bowling Tournament from this past January. We donated over $7000.00 to various
This year our tournament will be held on Saturday January 12th, 2019. Squad times will be
10:00 am and 2:00pm with an entry fee of $25.00. You don't have to have a team to bowl, just
come on down and we will find a spot for you. There will be raffles throughout the day. This is our
only fundraiser so we would greatly appreciate your support.
Dues are due and we will no longer cover late dues, please contact Bob Wood at 414-315-

I hope to see a big crowd on the 12th
The pending sale of our Memorial Building property has resulted in the premature end to our Memorial Brick Program. No new memorial brick orders will be accepted. When the building sale was approved by the membership, the initial plan was to remove existing memorial bricks from the building vestibule and store them for potential installation at a future permanent home. Removal of bricks has taken more time than estimated (up to 1 hour for one brick), and some bricks have proved impossible to remove without demolition of the vestibule wall. With an estimated closing date for the sale of our Memorial Building set for October12th, there is not enough time to extract all bricks from the wall. Additionally, to date there has not been evident enthusiasm for acquiring another, smaller property for use as a headquarters. Members appear to be more interested in using a rental as a meeting location.
Because of these conditions it was decided that memorial bricks that can be extracted from the vestibule wall will be made available for pick up by the original sponsor. Bricks that cannot be removed from the building vestibule wall will be replicated, at the request of the original sponsor, and made available for pick up. Brick sponsors may contact me directly by phone or email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for replication of a brick, and for pick up. The memorial bricks listed are available for pick up now.
