From the Commander

We have increased our three Legionnaire scholarships at LACS from $250 to $500. And added a $500 scholarship to South Lewis. Your membership, and support of our Legion, is what has allowed this to happen.

As our membership grows, so does our visitors. It is imperative that guest be sponsored by a member, and signed in. This is a State law. In addition, please always “just ask” someone to join. Membership in our Legion family is a right, determined only by their eligibility. We are not a social club; we are an American Legion Family.

Every new face at our Legion is an opportunity to recruit a new member. The larger our membership, the greater we can serve our Veterans, our community and our post.

On June 14th our Flag Day retirement ceremony will be held at the County Fairgrounds. This solemn ceremony serves as a tribute to honor our flag. This brief ceremony will start at 11AM.

Your Legion has taken on a “retro” look with new solid iron bar stools, standups and matching lower tables. It completely changes the look and feel of the post. Our hope is this new look will attract younger members (the key to our future). This reconfiguration increases seating areas for viewing our numerous large screen TVs. It also maximizes our space for dinners and events. This could not have been possible without the Auxiliary and their generous donation of $1,500! Thank-you ladies!

Every day we have food out for our membership and sponsored friends. All we ask is you simply donate something, to help cover our cost.

Our Legion marque (sign) is still on the fritz. We continue to work with Kassis Signs out of Syracuse, whom we purchased it from. Please call them at 315-463-7446 when you notice an issue, as opposed to calling the Commander.

As the 5th District Commander, covering six counties and 98 Legions over the last year I have seen a lot. Most posts fail when they close their doors to but only a select few, as they die off, so does the post. Our goal as a Legion Family is solely to support our Veterans, their families and our community. The Auxiliary and Sons of our Legion epitomize this by the phenomenal things they do. Thank-you for what you do!
