AMERICAN LEGION Cottreall-Warner Post # 942

                               November - December 2020 Newsletter

Greetings fellow Legionnaires, hope you all are safe and healthy!

Our next meeting is November 12th, we will need to follow the following guidelines:

1.) Temperatures will be taken at the door.

2.) Masks will be worn at all times (even while speaking)

3.) Seating will be 6’ apart 

4.) Food/drinks will not be served after the meeting,

     (because it tends to make people congregate)

We will try and make the meeting short; as of now, we will meet this way until this thing is under control.

For Legion family and youth activities, refer to the following info and the Auxiliary and SAL articles.

 

Veterans Day ceremony will not be open to the public; instead of a sit-down meal at the Village Hall, there will be bagged lunches handed out to take home.  Also, there will not be a Church service this year. Several Veterans Day offers will still be available at local restaurants and stores.  Tops Supermarkets sent us an announcement that they will be giving veterans 11% off grocery purchases. Applebee’s and a list of other restaurants will have specials; for more offers, refer to the link (if you have a computer):
