To Anyone that has bought a Key Card for $10.00, but can no longer use the card for any reason.  You can make arrangements with Carolyn Thomsen to return the card and get a refund on your $10.00. 



The Son’s & Regulars would like to thank everyone who bought a ticket to the Reverse Raffle and also a special thank you to all the people who sold tickets and volunteered their time to help at the event, without all of you the Raffle would not have been a success. Commander Eric Scherer was able to raise $3,500.00 through donations for his special project during his tenure as State Commander.  And with the profits from the Reverse Raffle of $3,740.00, we were able to present a check to the America’s Freedom Lodge for $7,240.00.  Everyone should be very proud of themselves for a job well done.  One other very special thank you goes to “High Speed” Nick Sarr for all of his time and effort put into this project, without his leadership and knowledge this raffle would not of gone as smooth as it did.  Again thank all of you. Post 17 Commander Eric Scherer & Post 17 Son’s Commander Dan Sarr
