February Newsletter

Brett Riestad, National Commander of The American Legion, will be visiting Florida February 1st through 7th. He is an Army veteran from Virginia. His visit will be to the Northern Area which is the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 17th Districts.

He will be in our District the 6th and 7th. Commander Riestad is scheduled to visit Post 316 for lunch on Wednesday the 6th at 1230. Everyone is invited to come visit with him.

We are well into the 2019 membership year and are over 83% at this time. Please renew your membership soon as the mailing lists will be purged in February. When the March newsletter is ready for distribution, all delinquent members of the Legion Family will be removed from the email/snail mail lists. Please don’t let that happen.

Super Bowl Sunday the 3rd will see our annual chili cookoff. Judging will be at 4 PM and prizes will be awarded.

The Auxiliary is planning a Valentine’s Day celebration for Saturday the 16th that will include a prime rib dinner, cake walks and entertainment.
