Welcome to 2022. I am hoping that the new year brings everyone a better year than the past 2 years.
The potluck was well attended last month. Thanks to all who were able to participate. We will also be holding a prize raffle or a 50/50 raffle this month so plan at participate.
Our 2 fundraisers went well. We received $71.00 from Mod Pizza and $74 from Chipolte. Thanks to all who participated and a special thanks to Peggy for setting these up.
We are scheduled for Bingo at the VA this month on 18 JAN. I will have confirmation that this is still on by the meeting on 11 JAN. We can always use helpers for this event, which occurs every 3 months.
No flags for January. Our next flag day will be Presidents Day on 21 FEB 2022. Please check the "Flags" tab under "Post 108" for the 2022 schedule.
We are just over 6 months into the Legion’s fiscal year and 76 members have renewed or joined for 2022. That puts us at 79% of the 2022 goal of 96 members.
As far as I can see, three members are still using cableone.net for their email. Sparklight has announced that they will discontinue email service in our area on 24 FEB. Please let us know your new email address so we can keep you updated on post news/activities.
One important item that is upcoming is our annual election of officers. The elected post offices are: Post Commander, 1st Vice, 2nd Vice, Finance Officer and 2 Members-at-Large. The Chaplain, Adjutant, SGT-at-Arms, Service Officer and Judge Advocate are appointed by the newly elected Commander. We will start the nomination process at the MAR meeting and conclude with the election at the May meeting. Please consider stepping up and running for one of these offices. You will find it a very rewarding experience.
The minutes of our DEC meeting are under the "Post 108" tab near the bottom for your review.
I hope to see y’all at the January meeting.
Until next time, please stay safe and healthy.
Your Humbled Post Commander
