Special Events – 2nd Vice Commander
Social Evening – "Fun and Games"
On 5/22/14 and 6/26/14, Fred Hancock Post 19 and Unit 19 Auxiliary will repeat the Social Evenings with no Business to be conducted. It will be at the Post hall with some chatting, a game and
refreshments such as wine, beer or coffee and other drinks, (short of hard liquor), and some snacks. You may bring your favorite snacks and/or refreshments to share. If you want to bring something –
check with Diana Hagen 425-271-3881 - to avoid duplications. The tentative planned schedule is Bunco for May and Karaoke for June. This especially is a good event for first timers to meet the people
of the Post.
2015 DUES ARE DUE. The way the Legion dues structure is set up; the year starts on July 1st thereby making your dues payable at that date. It must be the Detroit influence – remember how you always could by next years model in July or August. If you are able to, please pay the dues as soon as you are able to. I have your 2015 Membership Card already in hand and I can mail it to you as soon as we get your dues. If you choose to pay over the Internet – mylegion.org – then you card will be about a month later, because of the delay in notification from the National office.
Your Adjutant of Post 19 - Milton A. Tiede PE
The Honor Guard is looking for new volunteers. Many of our WWII Veterans are no longer able to volunteer for this duty. Contact John King (at 425-432-0631) if you can help out for this very worthy activity.
At the beginning of December 2013 Fred Hancock Post 19 renewals of membership stand at just over 91%. While we are proud of our achievements in membershihp thus far, we continue to seek new members and ask existing members who have not yet submitted their dues to act immediately. Our numbers give the Legion a powerful tool in Washington to aid our Military Services's personnel and veterans. Let's make 100% for 2014!
The next Newsletter will coming out in early January, 2014. Copies of past newsletters are available at the Post Hall.
