AUXILIARY UNIT 942
Hello Ladies, Happy Fall! We are thankful for our Veterans all year long, however, I would like to say thank you to everyone that helped with another very successful Harvest dinner!! Volunteering means everything to the Legion, so thank you to all the dish washers, decorators, cooks, cleanup crew, and everyone that made desserts. The proceeds from the dinner, as well as any event the Auxiliary holds all go toward supporting Veterans and their families in our community.
Membership: Dues- if you haven’t paid your dues yet, please do so ASAP to Sharyn Butwid (872-2416) who is our membership chairman. Did you know that if you have a daughter or granddaughter between the ages of 0-17 that they are eligible to be Junior Auxiliary Members? The Auxiliary will pay for their membership dues until they become adult members at the age of 18!
The Juniors will be meeting 11/24 at the Legion from 11-2 for a project, any questions please call Karen Reyes (739-6681)
Veterans Day Services – Please refer to the Main Schedule in the newsletter for Church services & and Services in the park.
Our Annual Children’s Christmas Party is set for December 14th at 1pm. Please register children and grandchildren under the age of 9 at the bar in the upcoming weeks. We will need Volunteers to make treats, wrap gifts, set up, etc. This is a very special event for the children. New this year we are asking to bring in can goods to donate to the Webster food cupboard.

SONS OF THE LEGION
Every newsletter I have to write as commander seems to get easier. Our membership has almost doubled in the past ten years. Our donations from fundraising has set our post apart from most. A combined family effort has once again allowed the Sons of the American Legion here in Webster to have a banner year at the gun raffle!! Attendance was at an all-time high, along with net profits. There is no amount of thanks I can express to everyone involved. Our event continues to grow each year…
Membership cards are in and ready to distribute for 2020. Please send in or drop off your $15 for annual dues. (Duel members - $8)
The Legion Riders are having their 1st annual Sportsman Raffle on Armed forces day in 2020. Please consider supporting their raffle by purchasing tickets!! Let’s make their 1st raffle as perfect as our 10th!!!!
