Commanders Column August 2017

Hot Summer Greetings to Everyone!!

A great big thanks to everyone who volunteered at the 4th of July Celebration this year at the post!! We had an awesome turnout and I believe a good time was had by all!! We did extremely well on the raffle this year. I believe we surpassed last year’s number by over a $1,000. Of course we had two outstanding sellers that sold over 2,500 tickets combined. They were Tom Goodwin and Clyde Wilcox. Congratulations to them!!! Just imagine the money we could make for veterans if we could all sell that many!!

Joe and I attended the Department Convention this month in Mahnomen at the Shooting Star Casino. A great time was had by all!! We elected a new Commander by the name of Mike Schaffer. I have high hopes for the Legion this year!!

I have a new project that I’m working on and I need your help! After speaking with Sue Register from the Veteran’s Home in Hastings I realized that there are tons of things that they need on a daily basis. I have put the specifics of the project in an article on this web site, so please take a look and consider donating some of these items on an ongoing basis. I would like this to go on year round so if you are out shopping, please pick up a few of these things everyone once in a while and drop them in the box by the door.
I am still working on the new DAV Chapter for us. As with all new groups, there are a few hurdles that we have navigate through and I am working with the National DAV to get that going.

Our Post 1776 Legion Riders are active and growing!! If you have a motorcycle and would like to join, please contact Bob Sletten at 612-790-6151

Here is my final thought for the month….
