COMMANDER’S CORNER

Good day Legionaries... it’s the start of another new year and I look forward to our activities and spending time with you. 
Be an early bird with your renewals by Veterans Day and if you’re one of four to have your name picked at Café Vets in November you’ll receive a $25 gift card at the restaurant of your choice. Meetings will be in person but also on zoom to make it easier for everyone to decide what is best for them. 
As of now the Auburn Veterans Day parade is a go so start planning for it. We no longer have the Army truck to take non-walkers down the parade route. Auburn Post 78 says any walkers that would like to be in it can walk with them. 
Take the time to look at the calendar to see what activities you would like to participate in. The Post has Café Vets the 3rd Thursday of every month except December. Meetings are from 1000 – 1200. Come enjoy coffee, packaged light snacks, or bring your own and great conversation. Some months there’s a planned activity at the end of the month, so look at the calendar. You don’t have to come to the Post meetings to participate in the social events. 
The Honor Guard has several new members, thank you to all of you that have decided to volunteer for this very worthwhile service.

FOR GOD AND COUNTRY, 
Patty Hurst Reese, Commander
