NEW MEMBER CHALLENGE
With the new Legion Act now law, the Executive Board is issuing a Membership Challenge.
We challenge every member to bring in one new member by 31 December. If you bring in five (5) new members we will pay your dues for one year; if you bring in fifteen (15) new members, we will pay your dues for three years. For purposes of this challenge, transfers from Post 1000 will count as a new member (contact me if you would like names of Post 1000 members in our area, there are many).
We are sure there are many, many veterans in this area. Talk to family and friends and ask about vets they may know. Contact those vets and tell them about our post and the American Legion. Go to Legion.org to find lots of membership information or come to the Veterans Memorial Building and pickup some information.
LET’S MAKE 200!!!!

POST GENERIC BUSINESS CARDS
We have had business cards for general use by all members. These cards can be used for any reason related to our post, i.e., potential membership contacts, donation requests like our crab feed, etc. These cards will be available at all of our regular meetings or make arrangements with a post officer.
Since Doris’s passing, we have asked about how to pay our respects. Doris’s granddaughter has indicated, in lieu of flowers or cards, that you donate to the Veterans Remembrance Committee, a bay area veterans’ group to foster public remembrance for the men and women who have served our country. Doris was involved with the committee for many years. Make checks to "Veterans Remembrance Committee", note remembrance of Doris Sidwell. The address is:
Veterans Remembrance Committee
