Commander's Call

Hello Legionnaires,

First and foremost, I want to thank Sue Morrell and Therese Testolin for the help they provided for our picnic. I was not able to be there because of prior commitments with the Legion. I was told everyone had a good time and the food was great.

Every one stepped in and helped Bob and Dean. THANK YOU !!!

October is Launch an all-out membership campaign. Remember that dues for next year are payable by Oct. 20th. Organize and participate in Halloween safety programs.

Our Veterans Day goal is to be at 75% with membership. Our post has exceeded that goal. Thank you all and keep the DUES rolling in. If you are experiencing any problems let me or Dean know as soon as possible.

Remember, your dues have to be in before the end of December to keep your Legion Insurance intact.

Wreaths across America ceremony will be held at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, IL, DECEMBER 18th, 2021, At 11:00 am

I want everyone in the American Legion to remember the four pillars on which the Legion was established for.

1. Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation

2. National Security

3. Americanism

4. Children and Youth

Remember there are a lot of Scholarships available for your High School Juniors and Seniors. to apply for, don’t miss the deadline for them.   

Until next month!
