Please help us achieve 100% membership, by our Early Bird Dinner on November 17th. We will provide an amazing meal, some adult beverages, and a great time. Here’s how to join: On-line, mail a check, or stop by the post. 2019 Family cards are available at the Post. Legionnaires can click here to renew on line: http://www.americanlegionfamily.org/legion-membership
This month we are doing a 100% mailing of current paid 2018/19 members. Other than new members, if you have not previously received the newsletter by mail and would like to, please call the post or email email@example.com. Also call or email if you would like to receive it via email or to pick it up at the post. This will save on postage costs.
We take great pride in the fact that the Legionnaires and Auxiliary are currently 2nd in the State for membership. It’s the strength of our Legion Family, and the fact that we work together that has allowed us to continue to exceed the standard. (Sons numbers were unavailable as of this writing).
Help us celebrate our 100th year! The American Legion was chartered on March 15th, 1919 by Expeditionary Forces in Paris, France. Our Legion was charted on July 25th 1919 as one the first in the Country. The National Commander of the American Legion will be here on March 27th, 2019 to help us celebrate this once in a lifetime event. Be a part of history by buying an ad in the historic publication we are developing. It will outline the history on the Veterans in Lewis County even before the American Legion. It will date back to The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) in Lewis County. A rate sheet is attached.
As your 5th District Commander, I have 6 counties and 98 Legions. Because of our phenomenal growth and what all of you have accomplished at out Post, it makes this job so much easier for me. We really walk the walk and talk the talk. As I travel the North Country and speak about this it gives me the credibility to truly lead our District to the next level.
