Members Present: Gary Brauer, Steve Duffrin, Terry Erickson, Wally Gnewikow (by phone), Eric Martin, Dan Wilhelm, Steve Hole, Donna Viner, Peggy Klich
Gary called the meeting to order at 6:10 pm. Due to technology issues, the meeting started a bit late.
School Report: Wally called in to Eric with the school report. Semester 2 is about to start; no outside groups may meet at school due to the latest surge in Covid-19 cases.
Financial Report: Dan indicated that the investments lost last month. Several memorials came in as well, details in the financial report. Motion to approve the financial report carried.
Scholarship: Scholarship committee will be meeting in Dan’s office. Dan, Gary, and Tom will be there. Any other director is invited to attend.
Membership: Membership sales/dues increased significantly last month, due in large part to the letter that Jenni sent out reminding members to pay their dues.
Obituaries: Report submitted electronically.
Old Business: Chicken Cue was discussed. Looks like it will not interfere with the mattress sale fundraiser the band is doing. Discussion ensued about whether to run a drive through like last year or serve in the more traditional manner. Lots of folks liked the idea of the drive through again. Donna will check with Sam’s about the date and once everything is set, Peggy will get the tickets printed up.
New Business: Sue asked about doing a quilt raffle. She is planning to make two quilts. Proceeds will be split with the Booster Club. Tickets will be sold by members and at the Craft Show. The table at the Craft Show should be staffed by members of the Alumni Association and the Booster Club.
Motion made to adjourn. Motion seconded and approved.
Next meeting is February 21st, 2022.
Meeting adjourned at 6:32 pm.

Veteran’s Day Presentation

At 2:00 P.M. on Thursday, November 11th (Veterans Day), David Britt and John Duresky will be at American Legion Post 52 to discuss the book RELENTLESS HOPE: A True Story of War and Survival. David Britt, John Duresky, and Vickie Graham – Logan Class of 1967 graduates – collaborated to create this  book that details pre-WWII military life in the Philippines and the horrendous conditions suffered by prisoners of war during the Bataan Death March, on Japanese transport ships, and in Japanese prisoner of war camps in Japan and Manchuria. It also details the love of a La Crosse soldier/prisoner of war and his wife and family.
David Britt authored this book about his father, Chester Britt, Sr., a Logan and West Point graduate. Chester Britt was selected posthumously for induction into Logan’s first Wall of Fame class. The print copy lookup is ISBN 978-1-09838-539-2, and the Amazon/Kindle lookup is ISBN 978-1-09838-540-8. Copies will be available for purchase at the event.
