American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Greetings Legion Family


Well it is over halfway thru October and the weather is beautiful.


Good news, we just went under $150K on the mortgage, which means we have paid off

one forth of the $270K balance and went from 17 to 12 years this December from where

we were a little over 2 years ago.  We had several $100, $50, $20 and $10 donations this

last month.  We  had a very special donation by Mr Gary Eager’s to which we give

many thanks.  It seems that our older members who do not visit the Post often are the

ones who truly realize the importance of the Legion to the community.

I hope to have the mortgage down to $125 K by the end of this term, but it looks like a

goal I may not meet.  I will try to make this my last newsletter stating the need for donations,

as I think I have relayed numerous times and have not gotten a good response from all

but a few members.  There is just so much more we could do if not for the mortgage.  It

would help us make it through the lean months without having to borrow from our Line of

Credit, as well as supporting some well deserving charities that we have not been able to

afford this past several months.


November is a busy month as we will have the free breakfast for veterans on Veterans

Day the 11th. November 18th is 9th District meeting here at our Post. November 23rd is

our annual Gun Shoot at the VFW. We will be collecting non-perishables for our food

baskets.  Bins will be available for your donations in the front hall.


The Lounge will be closed Thanksgiving Day and there will be no Fish night this month.


Once again thanks to all who volunteer and donate to the Post.


ALR are having their nomination of officers this month.


I almost forgot , we will be starting Bar Bingo every Thursday night from 7 to 9pm.
