LEGIONNAIRES, Come to our business meeting
– 2nd Tuesday of the Month at 7:30pm Sep. to June– and we can talk to see where YOU might be able to help.
We are not a social club with a bar set-up, but we do have some social type of activities where it may be easy to meet some of our members. On the third Thursday of most months (Mar. 15th and Apr. 19th upcoming) we have “Café Vets” from 11am-3pm at the Post Hall, where talk and refreshments will be available in an informal atmosphere.

Special thanks to Eric Hansen for stepping up to fill the Jr. Vice Commander position vacated by the passing of Milt Tiede last Sep. Eric organized a great well-attended dine-out at Mai Place Chinese Restaurant Jan. 25th on fairly short notice. We still have a couple of vacant committee chairs, if someone wants to volunteer to take them. See next page.
At our March 13th Post Meeting we’ll vote on ByLaws changes and discuss the upcoming District Spring Conf. Apr. 22nd. Hope to see you there.

Membership

 

As of mid-October 2017 Fred Hancock Post 19 renewals of membership stand at just over 60%, comfortably above our target of 55%. While we are proud of our achievements in membership 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 active duty Military  personnel and veterans.  Let's make 100% for 2018!
