Good day Legionnaires...Membership is off to a good start with 64% renewals and one new member, WELCOME. If you haven’t renewed yet, remember you can’t be in the drawing for one of four giH cards
to restaurant of your choice. Value of the card is $40.00, and the drawing will be on 10 November. The Veterans Day parade in Auburn this year is a private vehicle 3 mile drive by. Our Army vehicle
doesn’t meet the seatbelt requirements, so as a Post we won’t be participating. Take the time to look at the calendar to see what activities you would like to participate in, once
Covid is over. The Post has 2 social events each month, once we are in phase 3. Café Vets the 3rd Thursday of every month, except December, 1100 –1400. Come enjoy coffee, light snacks, and great conversation. And towards the end of the month there is a potluck dinner or dining out, sometmes we don’t know where we are going until that month. 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. I miss the interactions we all have and I’m sure you do. Stay safe and healthy.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY.....
Patty Hurst Reese - Commander
Renewal notices are out now. Please don’t tarry in renewing this coming year. It’s easiest to do it on-line. Go to legion.org and follow the RENEWAL prompts. If you’re an “early bird”, you might win a prize! (See COMMANDER’S CORNER)
