Thank you for the members who did the walk-a-thon April 19, 2017. I hope next year more members can show up. Elections are now upcoming if interested in becoming an officer. Let the Son’s member know. Better yet, come to the May meeting to put your name in. It is a great organization to belong to. GET INVOLVED!. Come one Son’s, lets jelp out by signing up for the poppy drive – sign up sheets are at the club.
As you know elections for officers are now being taken. We need ALL members to become involved, not just a few. You as a member do have a responsibility to make the auxiliary an important part of the Legion. Our Poppy drive is now in the works – the dates are: Wal-Mart Friday May 12; Don’s Car Wash and Valu Home Center are Saturday May 13. We need all members to help fill spots at these locations. Please give 1 or 2 hours of your time for our veterans. It is the least we can do for them considering what they gave for us – sign up sheets are at the club.
