Commanders Notes

            Let me start this month by bragging on the Legion and the Tournament Committee. There is a lot of hard work, months of hard work by many many people to make the NJCAA tournament what it is. The Basketball Committee and the Legion has always taken pride in The Tournament and we now have an award that recognizes and acknowledges the countless hours of dedication required by all the volunteers to stage such a great event.  The 2018 NJCAA DI Men’s Basketball Championship has won a Sports Travel Award for the Best Single Sports Event in the Collegiate division. Congratulations to the Tournament Committee for all of your hard work. 

            The end of the year is quickly approaching, sign up sheets for our annual Thanksgiving dinner is around the Legion, please stop by and sign the sheets if you lan on attending agin this year. Also December 7th is the Gentiva Veteran’s Breakfast, if you have never attended this before plan on it this year, the ladies from Gentiva always do a great job for the Post. We will be having coffee and Donuts on Saturday November 10th for our Veteran’s Day get together, so plan on attending that also.

            Monday Munchies is back on in the Clubroom every Monday, so bring in a dish and enjoy the fun, also we will be open to watch a few Kansas City Chiefs games (see calendar) throughout the season, call to find what games will be on!

            We are still taking dues for both 2018, and 2019 membership years, if you haven’t yet paid please do so now. Please don’t hesitate to call or email (68commander@gmail.com) anytime you have a question about membership or the Post in general. Thank you all for belonging to The American Legion.

SAL Notes

 

November is here already and that means we are approaching Veteran's Day.  I enjoy history, so I decided to write about the history of Veteran's Day for this months newsletter.  Veteran's Day originated as Armistice Day on November 11, 1919, as the anniversary of the end of World War I.  In 1926, Congress passed a resolution that it would become an annual holiday starting in 1938.  In 1954, President Eisenhower changed the name from Armistice Day to Veteran's Day.  Don't forget to come join us on November 10th for Chicken Fried Steaks!!

 

ALR Notes

Wow! November is here already and along with it cooler weather. Riding season will soon be over but we continue to be busy. This month there is a 5k run fundraiser for the Veterans Memorial, Veterans Day breakfast, Veterans Day rest home visits, Moose Poker tournament, one or two Veterans appreciation dinners, Big Red Turkey Run, Thanksgiving Dinner, and more. Watch your E-mails for updates on these and other events. The November ALR meeting is also when we open nominations for the election of officers in December. This year the following offices must have new volunteers due to term limits: Director, Assistant Director, Treasurer, one Sgt@Arms. As usual, anyone that wishes to run for any office position is more than welcome. It is always nice to have more than one volunteer for each office. Something I think does not get said enough is Thank You. So Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all of you Riders who volunteer around the Post for everything. The Post cannot continue to operate without dedicated volunteers. Stay warm and Ride Safe.
