Monday, September 24, 2018:    (l-r) Paula and Mark were interviewed on WWWI-AM/FM and KLKS-FM Radio by Rick Skogs for 25 minutes.  Mark is a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.  Paula is a VFW auxiliary life member.  Their topic that day was the annual VFW essay contest.  For school age students grades 6 to 8, it is the Patriot's pen, 300 to 400 word writing on the subject, "Why My Vote Matters."  Students in grades 9 to 12 can compete in a writing/speaking competition, Voice of Democracy.  This year's theme is "Why I Honor the American Flag."  Details at BrainerdVFW.org
Well, it the end of the boating season.  The Minnow was picked up for winter storage that day.  Mark, "The Skipper," said, I can hardly wait until next year.
Bingo is played at the Brainerd VFW on Monday evenings.  Paula (on the right) is very competitive and was concentrated on winning.
Then the food arrived.  It may be a bit fattening, but sure tasted good.
Bingo was called all evening and there were a some happy winners.

Quote of the day:     A great day in Brainerd.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
