Memorial Day 2018 Post 19 Activities

COMMANDER’S CORNER-

As you know we lost our 1st Vice Commander in March. Paul Cook passed away and was buried at Tahoma National Cemetery. Our Post Honor Guard performed the service for him. He will be sorely missed. Memorial Day events are fast approaching. Before that though, it’s time to start planning to collect money for our annual poppy drive. Some of the members of the Legion and Auxiliary stuffed envelopes recently to be mailed out to members. Thanks to those who participated. Now let’s all take a few poppies out and collect donations. We’ll be electing new officers for the next year soon and could use a few good candidates to fill all the positions so if you have any suggestions of those who would be willing and available or you yourself would, please contact me or the Adjutant. Nominations from the floor and election will be held during the May meeting,
For God And Country Bruce Welder.

ADJUTANT’S DESK
James Wilhoit – Adjutant
LEGIONNAIRES, on the third Thursday of most months (May 17th and June 21st upcoming) we have “Café Vets” from 11am-3pm at the Post Hall, where talk and refreshments will be available. For further details call Post Finance Officer Patty Reese (Café Vets facilitator), 425-922-3061 twoxs2@aol.com
In addition to Paul Cook we lost past Post Commander Dale Taylor (2005-2006) in April. We’ll drape the flag for both at our May 8th meeting. LAST CALL: If you haven’t renewed yet, please do so, preferably on- line at legion.org. The newsletter’s been going out to members up to two years expired. I’ll purge the list prior to the July edition. Please get paid up if you want to stay on our distribution list.

HONOR GUARD
We still need a couple more legionnaires to volunteer for the Honor Guard at the National Cemetery. We go there on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th Tuesdays of each month. The Post supplies some clothing. Call John King at 425-432-0631 for more information.

SCOUTING NEWS
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 

 

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!
