COMMANDER’S CORNER

 

Our fall season is getting underway now with Veterans Day approaching.  I’d like to see as many people in Auburn as possible on the 11th.  We need to assemble at the corner of L Street and Main at 9:30 to 10:00 in the morning.  We’ll have Tim’s truck for anybody unable to walk the parade.  Please let’s have at least 6 people who can walk with the banner and color guard.  The more the better though. The Ladies Auxiliary recently held a bazaar at the post.   There were many interesting items available there.  I bought some Christmas ornaments and an innovative fastening device. Remember it’s time for all those who haven’t renewed their 2018 dues yet to do so now.  Let’s all have a great holiday season coming up and finish the year out safely.

2017 DUES ARE DUE. The way the Legion dues structure is set up; the year starts on July 1st thereby making your dues payable at that date. It must be the Detroit influence – remember how you always could buy next years model in July or August. If you are able to, please pay the dues as soon as you are able to. I have your 2017 Membership Card already in hand. If you choose to pay over the Internet – mylegion.org – then you card will be about a month later, because of the delay in notification from the National office.

The Post has an assortment of Medical Support Equipment – such as:
    4  Wheel Chairs        6  Walkers
    6  Sets of Crutches        2 Shower Chairs
and miscellaneous other stuff. Any member can borrow any of these items at no cost just by contacting the Chaplain or the Adjutant and showing their Membership card at the time of pick up. This is an extra benefit for our veterans and their families.

 

Emergency Preparedness
Allaround the Pacific Rim we hear of earthquakes of a magnitude of greater then 7. Places like Chile, Japan. Indonesia experiencing devastation and hardships in large scale that is hard to overcome. So, even if our superior structures increase our chance for survival – the aftermath will severely affect our infrastructure and social fabric. So, PLEASE, lay by enough RESERVES of food and water tha will sustain you for a couple of weeks or more. Do not rely on your children or relatives for the will not be able to reach you and your neighbors did not even receive this warning. As the Boy Scouts say – BE PREPARED.

Historian 
James Wilhoit reported that the History of Post 19 he submitted to the National Committee received honorable mention. The Post received a certificate The certificate will be displayed at the Post –Good Job by Wilhoit.

 

Honor Guard

 

The Honor Guard is looking for new volunteers.  Many of our WWII Veterans are no longer able to volunteer for this duty.  Contact John King (at 425-432-0631) if you can help out for this very worthy activity.

 

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!
