Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
We are nearing the end of the college football regular season-rivalry weekend and championship weekend coming up.
Our 21st annual Pearl Harbor Day golf tournament is upon us-December 5th. It is not too late to get your hole sponsorship at $25 or to sign up your foursome.
New Year’s Eve Party tickets go on sale for $10 for 316 Family (TAL, ALA, SAL, ALR) members only on December 3rd, then for all others on December 9th. First come, first served. We also have raffle tickets for the basket of cheer at $1 for one ticket and $5 for six tickets. Drawing will be at 9 PM at the New Year’s Eve Party. Please bring a dish to share to the party.
Despite publicizing in the newsletter and hi-lighting it on the email notes, we continue to get credit card dues payments. We do not process credit cards for anything and the Department quit processing credit cards for all Posts. Dues must be paid by cash or check. You can pay by credit card online to www.legion.org . We can only return your renewal notice with the credit card information and ask that you pay in some other manner. This obviously slows everything down.
The Toys 4 Tots bin will be at the Post until about 3 PM on the 12th. Please bring a new and unwrapped gift for the needy. If you play bingo and bring in a toy, you get a free card to the first jackpot game.
The Auxiliary Christmas Party will be the 14th at 7 PM. Please bring a dish to share and a gift if you’d like to participate in the gift exchange.
The Riders Christmas Party will be the 20th. Please bring a side dish to share and gift if you’d like to participate in the gift exchange.
The bartenders will be checking all membership cards during December as a courtesy reminder that 2019 cards expire December 31st. Please be ready to show your card as they are just doing their job.
The Department Commander and Department President will be at Post 316 at 7 PM on the 7th. Come out and meet your state leaders.
With the new Legion eligibility established by Congress which makes the eligibility period consecutive from December 7th, 1941, to a date to be determined by Congress, anyone who has served one day anywhere in the world and either has an honorable discharge or is still serving is now eligible to join. Please make one of your New Year’s resolutions to recruit one new member into Post 316.
