Good day Legionnaires...
Happy Spring! At least this winter wasn’t as snowy as last, but I dislike the cold! I apologize for not doing my write up last
quarter, I’m in the process of moving out of my family home and the home I’ve lived in for 22.5 years. I’m still moving and it’s been since December!! Café Vets is going strong and I enjoy doing this
function, come check it out, again the 3rd Thursday of every month, except December 1000-1200. Come enjoy coffee, light snacks or bring your own, and great conversation. And towards the end of the
month there is a potluck dinner or dining out, sometimes we don’t know where we are going till that month, this will start up again someday. You don’t have to come to the Post meetings to participate
in the social events. If you have any ideas what we can do socially please contact me. There is a
hall usage policy in place, if you need space for no greater than 80 people, consider the Post Hall. All donations are going to our
Children’s Fund. “National Vietnam War Veterans Day: Recognition Act of 2017, was signed into law to be celebrated every March 29th, in perpetuity.” If anyone has any ideas how we could honor our
Vietnam Vet I would like to know. Honor Guard is doing great and I appreciate all the members on it. I know when it’s my time to go, I want a sendoff with this Honor, so therefore I serve on the
support group. If able please consider giving a little of your time. Let Jerry Livingston know. There has been a request to the Post for any volunteers. “The June Leonard Place” apartments in
downtown Renton houses lower wage earners, homeless households including families with children, and homeless veterans. The manager noted that the veteran residents could really benefit from
volunteers who could come check in on them from time to time. She cited needs like transportation and help scheduling medical appts, among others.” If this community outreach is something you have
time for please contact Joanna Dunn,

ADJUTANT’S DESK – James Wilhoit
As many of you have heard the District Commander and Vice Commander have both resigned their positions. There will be a special
District meeting via Zoom on Sun. January 29 at 1:00PM to elect their replacements.
Candidates for these offices must have approve nominating resolutions from their home Posts. If you are interested in serving in either of these capacities please let me know.
Our Post sponsors four scouting units: Boy Scout Troop 498 (40 youths), Cub Scout Pack 468 (30 youths), and Venture Crew 498 (10 youths). The Venture group just started
in 2017 and is made up of both boys and girls, and they meet at the Post on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month. If you’d like to get involved with the Scouts, contact Scouting Chair Tom
