American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Greetings Legion Family

September is here and almost gone.  We are hoping for a good Festival week. This is the

most difficult newsletter I have had to write.  We have really been struggling to make

ends meet for the past 3 months and have pretty well exhausted our line of credit. 

Hopefully the Festival will help us catch back up.  Thanks to all our family groups for

their donations and time through these bad times or we would really be in bad shape. 

Times get slow during summer months, but this is the worst since my time as

Commander.  We haven’t been spending on things we didn’t need or donating money

we don’t have.  Business is just that slow.

Thanks to those who have helped on the mortgage, but it seems I just can’t get thru to

the membership  the importance of not having a mortgage payment.  There is less than

10 people who have been donating and several of them are from out of state.

I have also been made aware of different people borrowing money from their fellow

members.  This is not a problem unless the member has asked not to be asked

again and is still being asked, then this becomes a problem for me to resolve.  People

should be able to come and relax at the Post without being bothered by someone asking

for a loan.

Enough of the negative.  The van is still making its trips to the VA with some new drivers. 

The Honor Guard is still participating when needed.  We are still having different food

nights during the week, including the Honor Guard meals will be varying for the next couple

of months to find a good fit.

We have a very fine Post and will work our way thru the bad times.

In October we plan on having a Halloween Party with Band Oct 28th. Christmas Bazaar–

Bake Sale is Oct 28th. Call if you would like to reserve tables.  Auxilliary will be having

Poppy Road Block October 21,come in to sign waiver if you can help. SAL will be

having a cookout October 7 at Ace Hardware.

Lounge will be closed October 1 due to cleaning up after Festival Dance night.
