Fred Hancock Post #19
& Auxiliary Unit 19
The Post social event for December is a X-mas party. You are hereby specially invited to join fellow post members in a festive pot-luck dinner. When you have decided what to bring as your share for the dinner, you are asked to contact:
Diane Hagen at 425-271-3881 So we have an idea how many will be participating and to avoid a lot of duplication in the food line. The Place is of course our Post Hall – the date is one week prior to X-mas day - 12/18/14 at 6:30pm. After dinner there will be a “White Elephant” gift exchange. To that end everybody that attends has to bring a fully wrapped gift that should be funny/bizarre/weird and cost less than $10. Optional - If you want to feel good about the event you can bring an unwrapped toy for kids.

2015 DUES ARE OVER DUE. The way the Legion dues structure is set up; the year starts on July 1st thereby making your dues payable before August 1st.
Please do not forget NEF DONATIONS. Remember that Fred Hancock Post 19 donated $1000 to the National Emergency Fund in your name – our Post Members. The post received a great looking plaque from the Department of Washington for great contribution.
I have E/mail Addresses for 53% of the membership for the Fred Hancock Post 19. For better communications, please feel free or impelled to provide me with some feedback – bad or good – and I will make note and respond to it. Communication is the lifeblood of an organization and the more we talk to each other the closer we draw together and thereby becoming a more vital organization.
My address is MATIEDE@aol.com
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.
