Callers will need to Press 1 in order to reach the Veterans Crisis Line.
FROM THE COMMANDER
Guidance from the top.
The State Commander has issued guidance for COVID19. Masked are required as long as we are open.
Unless people are in their seats, masks now have to be enforced.
Anyone not wanting to wear a mask is free to wander on the porch and drink.
This rule also applies to all bar staff. Pool tourneys and shuffleboard.
Bartenders are to issue warnings to patrons not following masks ordinances, and after two warnings a person will no longer be served and asked to leave the building.
Failure to follow this guidance can and will result in disciplinary actions.
