AMERICAN LEGION FAMILY NEWSLETTER
Greetings fellow Legionnaires, it looks like winter has arrived.
One thing that has changed this year is that the Past Commander/President Dinner date has moved from January to Sunday, March 10th.
Fish Fry Dinners: It will restart on the last Friday of this month, Friday January 25th, between 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and continue until April 26th. The scouts will need additional help and support to put on the dinners. The troop would need 8 to 10 committed volunteers for each dinner to make this feasible. This would include help with afternoon setup, cooking and cleanup. Please contact Shawn Crandall, the Troop 942 Scout Master, at (585) 802-0992 if you are interested in helping.
Membership: We have ~380 paid members for 2019, our goal is 506; if you haven’t paid please do so as soon as possible. Our dues is $40; you can now pay your dues on-line by credit card; your card will be sent to you by our Post Membership Chair.
Remember, if you paid your 2019 dues and have your 2019 card, you are paid; disregard any renewal notices from National.
Legion Riders: Anyone interested in joining contact Greg Cody at 750-1490.
Shooter Sport Club: The shooting team now has two sharpshooting teams and one precision shooting team. Please contact Tony Gross at 281-7815 if you have any candidates; it is free to all children of Webster and surrounding communities age 12 to 18.
Chaplain/Service Officer: Call Adjutant Don Linborg if you know of a Legionnaire that is currently sick or recently deceased at: 585-377-2086
