OUR LUNCH MEETING IN OCTOBER WILL BE HELD ON SUNDAY, 7 OCTOBER.
Our October speakers will be our Boys and Girls State delegates who will talk about their experiences at these events..
Thanks to Alan Scharlach, Bob Landy, & Floyd Cox for attending the 9/11 Remembrance at Oak Hill Park; it was a moving event and well attended. We have two big events in October; first, the District 9 VA Martinez BBQ for in-patients and, second, our regular meeting, our Boys and Girls State Recognition Luncheon on Sunday, 7, 1;00 pm.
Again, please review the note below on Appointed Officer positions. How can you help in one of these capacities to help your post and make our motto "Continuing to Serve" a reality.
Again, again, our big fundraising event of the year is coming up in January 2019. Got a suggestion for an auction or drawing (raffle) item? Let us know who and contact info and we will get them on the list!
Finally, it is the American Legion Centennial in 2019. Our big celebration will be the fourth of July parade, a special installation of officers, and a reception for Past National Commander, Dale Barnett (who will be the parade Grand Marshall). I would really like to see a huge turnout as we will be featured in the parade. I can also use some help finding a 1919 vehicle for the parade!
