Due to the fact the 1st Vice’s Computer broke and can’t get the mailing out on time, we are changing the Early Bird Dinner to a Member Appreciation Day with Chicken and Pot Luck. For God and Country Jimmy Lee Martin 1st Vice Cdr -Membership is looking good. I encourage everyone to renew as soon as you can. It helps the Post look good that we can meet goals that are set down from those higher than us. Post the calendar on your fridge or somewhere convenient because things are going to be happen pretty fast from now until the end of the year. With the help of Marsha Martin we are going to raffle off five (5) $100 VISA gift cards on Veterans Day. Tickets will be 1 for $10. Also this year we are again going to have our “Sponsor a Service Member” drive. Those Legionnaires wishing to sponsor, cost will be $25 per individual. This is a great chance for us to not only build our membership, but also to let these young service members know what the American Legion does for them on a daily basis. This program was a success last year and I don’t expect it to be any less this year. We are having our Membership Appreciation Day on Sun 23 Oct 11. Let’s not forget all the Holidays and functions coming up. Please support your Post. For God and Country - Mouse. Unit 240 Auxiliary -Theme for this year is L.E.A.P. Learn all the programs Energize new membership Applications keep with you to sign new members Please smile have fun. We are having a membership challenge between Districts 1 and 16, which every districts looses has to pay $10.00 per unit, so let’s all work on getting new members and encourage renewing members to pay dues. We voted 4 new members in lasted meeting, let’s make them feel welcome. I would like to say THANK YOU to all who help with the cakes and cake sells for the bingo on Wednesday nights. Oktoberfest will be on the 8th, come out and show your support. 29th of October will be the children’s Halloween party from 12 to 2.
