Special Americanism Night: Feburary 26
Post 19 and the Auxiliary will be holding the next Social Evening at the Post on Thursday, February 26, beginning at 6:30pm. This will be a potluck dinner and dessert event. The theme for this event is “Americanism.” In keeping with the theme, please try to focus your menu contribution on something that is representative of ‘American cuisine.’ Please send a note to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Diana Hagen (email@example.com) with what you are thinking of bringing, so we can try to avoid multiple entries of the same items. In addition to the meal, during the evening we will be conducting a number of challenges to test our grasp of what makes our nation great, so make sure to bring your thinking caps with you… Looking forward to seeing you there!
The Post Hall is located at 3224 NE 12th Street (near the intersection of NE Sunset Blvd) in the Renton Highlands. Click on the picture to the right to see a map of the Post Hall's location.

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 2014 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 2015!
The next Newsletter will coming out in early January, 2014. Copies of past newsletters are available at the Post Hall.
