Fellow Legionnaires of Post 147,

On Thursday November 3rd, 2016 we will have our annual Membership (Turkey) Dinner.  Doors will open at 4:00 PM with dinner being served again this year by our Ladies Auxiliary Unit around 6:30 PM.  We have a delicious meal planned plus the opportunity to win many cash prizes.

Admission is your 2017 membership card.  Please pay your dues early to avoid standing in line that evening.  Mail or drop off your dues payment at the Post home before October 20th to receive your membership card in the mail in time for the dinner.                                                          

PS:  Just a reminder, the Membership (Turkey) Dinner is for paid up members of the American Legion & Sons of the American Legion only. Membership dues must be paid in your primary organization, for example; a Legion member who is also a Sons member cannot attend the function just by paying their Sons dues. 

We will need volunteers to take meals to both our shut-ins and our Nursing Home residents. Please contact Lisa if you have time to assist us. She can be reached by calling the Post at 482-3862.

Our membership mission for this year is 628.  This mission is easily achievable with the help of you, our membership.  It’s easy, just ask! You have neighbors, nephews, sons and daughters who are eligible to join this great organization.

Our Post Everlasting honoring all deceased comrades from November 10, 2015 to the present will be conducted on November 14, 2016 at 7PM. Family members and friends are invited to attend the services. Each deceased member’s family will receive a personal letter from our Chaplain Kerry Heichelbech.

Enclosed you will find the Fall Monday Night Meal Schedule and the Fall Cash Raffle tickets. Come support your Post!

A special vote will be conducted during the Post Meeting in October to decide if we will remain a smoking allowed Post. ONLY Legionnaires can vote and they must have their valid membership card in their possession to vote.

We still need help with our Bingo nights.  Couldn’t you give up one Wednesday a month from 6 to 9:30pm to assist us in supporting our community and various veteran charities????

If you have received a yellow card in the mail from a company in Texas, wanting you to call and verify your information, this is a valid program the Department of Indiana is doing. It concerns a membership book of all Legion members in Indiana.

Before closing, the Post could use help preparing the Christmas Goody Bags for our Annual Children’s Christmas Party.  Preparing the bags will be done on December 2nd starting at 6:00PM.  The Middle School Christmas Party will be on Sunday December 4th at the Black Gym beginning at 11:30AM.
