COMMANDER’S CORNER

Good day Legionnaires…

 

Wow, we are almost half way through our active year. I hope everyone had a Good Christmas, with lots of memories. I sure did. Member- ship is now at 56% renewed. Two giF cards of $40.00, have been issued to the winners of the early bird membership contest. S8ll need to hear from the other two. The Veterans Day parade in Auburn was a success. Everyone that came rode in the Army Truck. Take the 8me to look at the calendar to see what activities you would like to participate in. The Post has 2 social events each month. Café Vets the 3rd Thursday of every month, except December, 1100 – 1400. Come enjoy coffee, light snacks, and great conversation. And to- wards the end of the month there is a potluck dinner or dining out, sometimes we don’t know where we are going 8ll that month. You don’t have to come to the Post meetings to participate in the social events. If you have any ideas what we can do socially please contact me. Our renovation of the Post is almost completed. All the outside work is done and now to the inside to repair and paint the Post hall. We now have a hall usage policy in place, if you need space for no greater than 80 people, consider the Post Hall. All donations are going to our Children’s Fund. “National Vietnam War Veterans Day: Of special significance, two years ago President Donald Trump signed into law the Vietnam War Veterans Recognition Act of 2017, establishing a National Vietnam War Veterans Day that will be celebrated every March 29, in perpetuity.” I would like to know who was on active duty any 8me any place during 1 Nov 1955 to 15 May 1975. The executive officers will be deciding how our Post can recognize this day and you the members. Happy 2020.

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!
