Commander's Notes for July
I’ll start by wishing everybody a fun and safe July 4th, we will be out watching the fireworks and celebrating with everyone else so there will be no Bingo on July 4th. Thank you all for understanding.
We had a great showing of support when the Kansas Legacy Run stopped in South Hutchinson at the memorial that is being built there. Overall Post 68 members turned in a total donation of $2,000 towards this year’s Legacy Run total, very proud to be a member of Post 68. Reminder that the American Legion Family Homecoming is being held at Wichita Post 4, 816 N Water Street Dinner July 22nd at 7:00PM. Bring items for a Child Welfare Auction; Cost of the dinner is $15 per person/$3.00 children (under 10).
We are attempting to try something new, July 19th we will have a family meeting, everybody is invited, and it will have an open table type meeting feel to discuss anything that is brought up. It will start at 7:30 on Wednesday July 19th so mark your calendars now!
We will have karaoke in the Clubroom July 8th from 7:00pm till midnight!
Early bird meal this year will be held on Veterans Day, November 11th. The cutoff for being an early bird beneficiary is also the same day, November 11th.
Bingo is in need of volunteers, especially callers, if interested in volunteering, call or email and we will get you on the rotation, the post depends on those that volunteer and the money from Bingo nights. We don’t say it enough, but Thank You to ALL our volunteers.
Reminder we are still looking for pictures of members in uniform so we can scan them in and put them into a digital picture for display on our new video screens, if you have one, you can send it to email@example.com or bring it in and we will scan it and save it here at the post. As always if you have questions, concerns, or comments feel free to call or email anytime.
Commander’s Notes for June
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of those that have helped make this Post what it is. Without our members we would not be a successful Post, so thank you to all past and present members for what you do or have done. Elections were last month as well, so congratulations to all the officers of the Legion, Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion; it should be a great and exciting year.
This month we have the American Legion Leadership College that will be held in Concordia on June 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. They are changing the format of the classes this year so it should be a great chance to learn more about The American Legion at the Post level. This year we were able to send 26 boys from Reno County to Boys State, thank you to everyone that helped with our luncheon or sponsored a boy. As of now, we are sitting at 80% of our quota for yearly membership, I know I don’t have to tell everybody how important membership is and what it means to the Post. If you know anybody who can belong, bring them in with you, show them the Post. Reminder you can rent the post for your social events, weddings, or parties.
We are looking for pictures of members in uniform so we can scan them in and put them into a digital picture for display on our new video screens, if you have one you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it in and we will scan it and save it here at the post.
