This weeks activities:

10/17/2018 Fire Prep @ FDC 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Lead: Engstrom Backup: Branham 10/20/2018 Colorado Centre's Safety Day 10:00 am to 2:00 pm No Lead, No Backup at this point. Again Explorer's get your accountability into your General Staff. We have some , but not completely for Saturday. You should be looking ahead on the calendar knowing what is coming up.

Other information, please read all items: Board Meeting Scheduled for 10/17/18 has been rescheduled for 10/24/18 at 6:00 pm @ the FDC. King Soopers Update from Mr. Essigmann: From the start of 2018 thru 06 October, a total of $36,278.58 was deposited onto the King Soopers gift cards that we should all be using. King Soopers refunds the post 5% of whatever is deposited. We have now received $1,813.98 from them for this budget year! Any additional monies received thru the remainder of this year will be credited toward the 2019 Banquet since it is unlikely that we will receive more prior to the November Awards Banquet. The post has approved the use of these refunds to help offset a portion of the cost of that banquet.

During 2018, about 13 cards were used in any given month. If all members of the post would use a card, we could easily meet our goal of $60,000 deposits in the year. With that level of participation, we could almost entirely pay for the banquet. Just think, a free banquet!!!! Let's all use those cards to help the Post.

Thanks to all who use their cards. Good job.

Martin F. (Marty) Essigmann, P.E.
