Greetings fellow Legionnaires,

The Holiday Season is upon us; take a look at our Coming Events in this newsletter and our website for upcoming events such as the children’s Christmas party (more info in Auxiliary article). Remember the Post is closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

Veterans Day Church Service: Will be at the Webster Presbyterian Church, 550 Webster Road, Webster, NY on Sunday, November 4th; be there by 9:15a.m. For now, there won’t be a reception after the service since the congregation goes to Sunday School and Bible Study after their service.

Veterans Day Ceremony: Sunday, Nov. 11th at the Village Veterans Park; be there by 10:30 a.m.; dress is short sleeves white shirt with collar, black pants and shoes, and your American Legion blue service cap and a jacket if cold. Webster Village employees are off on Sundays therefore the Village Hall is closed; instead The Village will be sponsoring the luncheon at our Post right after the ceremony is over.

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, clean up 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! Junior members are involved with our Veterans by making Thank you & Holiday Cards.

Veterans Day Services – Please refer to the Main Schedule in this newsletter for Church services & and Services in the park.

Our Annual Children’s Christmas Party is set for December 8th 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.

Our next meeting is 11/15 at 7pm. Please attend, as we will not have a December/January meeting

Catie Brodie-Rookey Auxiliary President, 585-455-9917




    As commander of the Sons of the American Legion I have had some amazing experiences.  This year our squadron received our third straight 1st place Americanism award compared to all the posts in New York State.  Most recently our Squadron was recognized in the Sons of the American Legion NATIONAL update.  A very proud moment for all of our Legion family.

    We held our 9th Annual gun raffle and could never express enough gratitude for all of the support.  Our day was perfect, but wouldn’t have been possible without an overwhelming number of volunteers!!  We are looking forward to our 10th annual raffle on Sept. 14th 2019.

    Our membership drive is in full swing.  We ask that all dues payments are received no later than December 10th this year.  This will allow time for processing to assure everyone stays current.  S.A.L. dues remain the same as years past. $10 Jr’s (under age 16), $15 regular membership, $8 Duel Members.

Nate Burdick

S.A.L. Commander
