This will save our Post funds and valuable time, our website is a great tool, use it as it will provide all the information you need being one of our valued members.
Legion Fish Fry Dinners: It will restart on the last Friday of the month beginning this month, Friday January 26th, between 5:30 to ~7:00 p.m. and continue until April 27th unless notified of a cancelation. 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 or you have a boy that wants to join our Troop.
Membership: Our goal for 2018 is 527; we are losing some of our senior member at a fast rate; we have 412 paid members which includes 16 new members plus a few that transferred in from other Posts. If you haven’t paid your 2018 dues please do so as soon as possible. You can pay on-line now at: https://www.legion.org/renew; we have over 82 that paid on-line for 2018 already. The portion of the dues that are due to the Post will be credited to our Post by the Department of NY.
Remember, if you paid your 2018 dues and have your 2018 card, you are paid; disregard any renewal notices from National.
Legion Riders: If you know of anyone interested in joining the Riders (must be a SAL, Auxiliary or Legion member) contact Greg Cody at 585 750-1490.
Shooter Sport Club: The shooting team meets on Monday evening in the Post Hall. Contact Tony Gross at 281-7815 if you have any candidates; it is free to all children of Webster and surrounding communities.
American Legion Family: Commander Cody is in the process of reserving camp sites at the Sugar Creek Campgrounds just outside of Dansville. We plan on staying 2 nights from Saturday, June 30th until Monday, July 2nd. If you can only stay one night or just spend the day that’s OK; people visit the site to view the waterfalls and for the beauty of the area. Food and other activities are being worked out; if you are interested, put the dates on your calendar; we need a head count- contact Commander Cody at: 585 750-1490
Service Officer: Call Chaplain Glenn Reed if you know of a Legionnaire that is currently sick or recently deceased at: 585-698-3408
