AMERICAN LEGION FAMILY NEWSLETTER
Greetings fellow Legionnaires,
It looks like winter has arrived. The officers of our Post wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Fish Fry Dinners: It will restart on the last Friday of this month, Friday January 31st, between 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. and continue until April 24th. The scouts will need additional help and support to put on the dinners. The troop would need 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: If you haven’t paid your 2020 dues please do so as soon as possible. Our goal was to have everyone paid up for 2020 by Dec. 15, 2019. If you haven’t paid your 2020 dues by Jan 31st, you are delinquent.
As of now, we have approximately 417 members paid, that includes 31 new members. That’s 85%. of our goal of 490.
You can pay on-line now at: https://www.legion.org/renew; we had 93 that paid on-line in 2019; we already have 97 that paid on-line for 2020. The portion of the dues that are due to the Post will be credited to our Post by the Dept. of NY.
Remember, if you paid your 2020 dues and have your 2020 card, you are paid; disregard any renewal notices from National.
Legion Riders: Our next fund raiser will be held on May 16, 2020 (Armed Forces Day) it will be an outdoors theme with many nice camping and outdoor items plus door prizes.

SONS OF THE LEGION
Our membership drive is in full swing. Please get your 2020 dues paid as the calendar year is fast approaching. Dues were voted to remain the same for this year. $15 can be mailed in or dropped off at the post social club.
Our annual donations have been made with a few exciting additions to this years’ children and youth initiative. I am proud to announce the donation of $3,000 to the Webster School District. This donation was directly applied to erase the debt for families who receive free or reduced lunch in all 11 schools in the district. This was a great way to give back to the community as well as support the children and youth pillar of our American Legion.
Looking ahead please support the Legion Riders in their first ever sportsman raffle to be held in May. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased for $10 at the post bar. Let’s make their 1st event as big as our 10th annual was!!!
Thanks for your time, firstname.lastname@example.org – (585-402-1474)
