We had over 60 members and guests at our last meeting at the Grapevine in Depew. Thank you to all for coming out. For those in attendance, it was obvious that the room provided by the Grapevine could not adequately accommodate all of us. This is why we stress how important it is to let us know if you will be attending. It is not only about the food but also seating. If we continue to try and find venues to keep our costs down, we need to have close to exact numbers in order to have enough food and seating for everyone.

Our next meeting on October 17th will be our nomination meeting. Louise Mcfeely has submitted her resignation as the director of retirees; also, Ken Napora is looking for someone to assume the position of treasurer. It is very important for members to consider running for an office. Every organization needs new fresh blood and ideas to carry out its mission. In addition to nominations, the membership will be asked to vote on the issue of whether or not alcohol should be served at our monthly meetings. You need to attend the meeting if you want your opinion to count.

The Badge and Shield club will be celebrating its mission of honoring our fellow employees at the 44th annual retirement and awards dinner on Saturday October 22nd, 2022.
