American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Dear Legion Family

April is halfway over and still no sign of Spring, hopefully it will warm up next week.


May is going to be busy!  I made a mistake in the last newsletter.  Nominations for the

Legion will close on Monday, May 7 at a special meeting at 7pm.  The election will

be the following Monday, May 14, 8:30am-7pm, closing during our regular meeting. 

Please come into the Post and vote that day, you will need your 2018 card as proof that

you are eligible to vote.


SAL will close nominations and hold election on May 21 at regular meeting.  The

Auxiliary will close nominations and hold election on May 10 at regular meeting.


We will be celebrating Derby Day May 5, hoping to have a pitch-in snack and food that day.


ALR will be meeting for CHADS Ride at boat club May 19, kickstands up at 10:30.


Please come and help us celebrate TJ’s retirement Saturday, May 19.   Plans are for a

Social hour at 5pm, followed at 6pm with a pitch in meal with meat provided by the Legion.

Band starts at 8pm. TJ has been with us 23 plus years and will be sorely missed. If

you would like to donate for gift see Rhonda or one of the officers.  Once again she will

be sorely missed, probably the most knowledgeable member of the Post as far as what

has to be done correctly to meet all rules and regulations to keep us functioning.


The week of May 21-26, we will be placing flags in the local cemeteries. A sign out sheet

will be in the conference room so we can be sure all are being done. Most of Cresthaven

 Will be done on May 26th after the Flag placement Breakfast at 8:30.  Please if able

come help.  Some of our older members will be unable to help this year and we need

willing and able volunteers to get this solemn duty fulfilled.
