Memorial Day 2018 Post 19 Activities
Thanks to everybody who made our Poppy Drive another suc- cess this year. Another Memorial Day is now passed and we were participants in 4 separate ser- vices as usual. Thanks again to those who
were there. Also, a couple of us were present for the rib- bon cutting at a new Vietnam War Memorial in Auburn. It was also attended by quite a number of Vietnamese veterans. We’ve now elected and
sworn in the new officers for the 2018-2019 calen- dar year. We still need somebody to fill the office of Jr. Vice Commander. The next big event for the post now is Renton River Days on July 27th
through 29th. Please sign up with the Adjutant to man our booth for some of the shifts if you possibly can and the parade is on Saturday July 28th. The truck will be available again and we need as
many as we can get to provide the color guard and banner. Finally, everybody have a wonderful summer.
For God And Country Bruce Welder.
James Wilhoit – Adjutant

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 Mechler, 425-255-0922, Tmechler2@gmail.com
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!
