Commander's Message:

Commander Puckett reports:

July begins the start of the new Legion Membership Year and the First Membership renewal notices will be arriving soon. You will have almost a full six months to renew your membership, so please make every effort to pay your dues before the end of the calendar year 2014. July signals the beginning of the summer and plenty of outside activities. Walt informed me that he is planning to have a guest speaker who will talk on the subject of counterfeiting at our membership meeting on Tuesday, July 8th. He is also extending an invitation to our Auxiliary Unit as well, to hear our speaker. This should be a very interesting topic, so come on out to the meeting and enjoy the company of your fellow members and don’t forget to fly “Old Glory” on the 4th. I hope to see you there. Thank you for your continued support at our monthly meetings and enjoy the summer! Officers remember we have suspended our Executive Meetings until Tuesday, September 23rd.

Pat Curtin Reports:

Thanks to all the Volunteers from the Legion, Auxiliary, Sons and Riders, for making our Dice Run to Benefit Homeless Vets a huge success. Our entire Legion Family was involved! We had 107 motorcycles and raised over $4,600 for this worthy cause. A very special thanks to my friend Ed Pfeiffer who organized this whole event so well he made all of us look good!
