      Commander McAdams opened the meeting at 6:00 PM with 17 members and 3 guests in attendance.  All officers were present except for  QM Amber Squier, Surgeon Len Squier and Guard Glenn Lewis - all excused.

          The minutes of the 6/7/22 meeting and the Treasurer's report were both approved as reported (QM report subject to audit).

         Service Officer Jim Goodspeed reported that the Chef Leo food for vets program was now self-sufficient with donations from local farms and orchards.  We no longer need to provide funding.  He is looking for a freezer for one of the contact sites for the program..

         Comrades  ill or in distress were QM Squier, JA Squier and Len Squier III as well as SO Goodspeed's wife Dee who recently suffered a broken shoulder.

.        Committee reports: Buddy Poppy Chairman Victor Mansfield thanked all who helped out with manning the parking lot fundraiser during the EDC County fair.  

           Under unfinished business, Adjutant Sauvé performed an abbreviate installation ceremony at 6:15 PM for the newly elected and appointed Post officers for the 2022-2023 year.  Commander McAdams revued his attendance at the Department of CA yearly convention last month.

          New business:  SVC Salter suggested that we participate as a Post in next year's 4th of July parade in Garden Valley and possibly the Placerville Christmas parade.

       Under Good of the Order, Adjutant Sauvé asked for a show of hands to staff the kitchen and dining room for the upcoming 5/8/22 Sunday breakfast and got satisfactory results.  Sue Young expressed the need for help with VMB manaer duties every other Tuesday.  Adjutant Sauvé will try to find a candidate.

        Chaplain Zajec recited a closing blessing at 6:31 PM and Commander McAdams adjourned the meeting at 6:33 PM with a final flag salute.  Adjutant Sauvé won the 50/50 attendance drawing.  Next meeting is August 2nd.

                      Respectfully submitted - Dave Sauvé, Adjutant
