Commander's Message:

Commander Puckett reports:
    March 15th-March 17th is the recognized anniversary period of the founding of the American Legion. It is also Community Service Month. At our March Membership Meeting, we will hold nominations of Post Officers for 2015-2016. If you are interested in running for an office, step up and be nominated. We welcome new ideas and younger members to take over the leadership of our Post. Please give this some serious thought and I look forward to seeing you at our meeting on the 10th. Please remember our young men and women serving in harm’s way and say a prayer for their safe return home. Thank you.

    FYI: We are looking for someone to clean the post on weekends. Please contact Lou Fumanti or Pat Curtin if interested. Thank you.

    If you miss my guest, then you will miss a very lovely young lady who will tell you about Mercy Flight, a wonderful thing for many classes of people who are in dire need and without funds. It is a wonderful thing to help others. Please do not miss the March 10th meeting. God bless these wonderful people and their medical squads that assist them from accident scene to hospitals.

Auxilary President

Mary Ann Kessler Reports:

    Our Auxiliary Unit, along with Vigilant Ladies Auxiliary, raised $660.00 on the basket raffle to benefit our Legion 735 and Vigilant Fire scholarship funds. Thank you everyone who donated and helped with this cause. Nominations for our Unit officers will begin at our next meeting March 4, 2015, at 7:00 pm. Please plan on attending. If your 2015 dues are not paid, you no longer have Auxiliary privileges. PLEASE get your dues into 1st Vice Toni Kruger as soon as possible. You can get your new membership card laminated at our monthly meeting. Kim Williams, our Chaplain, should be contacted (867-2928) for any members who have taken ill. Marching Unit Captain Sue Solly would like all the ladies to start thinking about marching season; its only two months away! Be on the lookout for emails and texts from her with updates. Poppy month of May is soon approaching. We will be looking for volunteers to distribute Poppies in honor of our Veterans, at neighborhood banks. Happy St. Patrick’s day everyone! Remember our Veterans in your prayers.
