From the Commander
Our Legion Family has donated $2,000 to the FCCLA at Lowville Academy to help jumpstart their veteran initiative that will place pictures of Veterans on telephone poles in the village. In addition, we owe our deepest gratitude to the Lowville Middle School for covering the cost of feeding our local Veterans on Veterans Day! You kids are amazing and epitomize everything our community is about.
Veterans Day was a huge success. We delivered meals and fed over a hundred Veterans, their families and friends. Jim Henry and crew did an awesome job!
The first week of December we will be sending Christmas Care Packages to the soldiers we adopted from 10th Mountain (Task Force Phoenix). We are in need of anything nonperishable, toiletries, venison jerky, female hygiene products, candy, baby wipes (unscented), powder drink mix, and anything Lewis County. Each small package we ship costs $18, we are anticipating a total shipping cost of $1,600 or more. Financial donations will be extremely appreciated.
On a yearly basis I sign a “990” in November for our taxes. Once again, we have had a record year with a significant increase in revenue. I feel what has contributed to this is the large increase in our membership. Please carry in your vehicle at all times membership applications. And remember to “Just Ask” someone to join.
Thank-you ARC and UCP for everything you do for our Veterans! The ARC monthly assembles our newsletter. They also place flags on our Veterans graves. The UCP maintains our museum and the Commander’s office.
We are looking for someone to serve as the curator of our museum. This volunteer position consists of making a recorded entry on all donations, managing inventory, and periodically changing displays. We are always looking for donations. Although, once an item is donated it becomes the property of the Legion.
