December Social – Dec. 27
The Post social event for December is a Holiday Party. You are hereby specially invited to join fellow post/unit members and families in a festive pot-luck dinner. When you have decided what to bring as your share for the dinner, you are asked to contact: Erika Tiede at 425-226-5216. So we have an idea how many will be participating and to avoid a lot of duplication in the food line.
The Place is of course our Post Hall – the day is Thursday after X-mas - 12/27/18 at 6:30 pm.
After dinner there will be a “White Elephant” gift exchange. Everybody who participates brings a fully wrapped gift that should be funny/bizarre/weird and valued at less than $10.

by Bruce Welder
Well the year is off to a pretty good start. We had a nice dine out and a pot luck social in the first 2 months. We have several Veteran’s Day events coming up quickly now. Check the calendar for de- tails. Specially the big parade down in Auburn. I hope to see as many of you there as possible. Tim will be driving the truck again. Election day is rapidly approaching too. Please get your ballots in and exercise the rights we stand for. Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast approaching so I hope everyone has a happy and joyous holiday season. Also just a reminder that our monthly meetings will start a half hour earlier on a trial basis starting in January. For God & Country

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!
