NEWSLETTER NOV/DEC2022/JAN2023

CHRISTMAS DINNER (Lunch?):   YES!!!  The Christmas Dinner is on.  We will again have our dinner at WISCO Supper Club in Leroy, WI.  Date is Sunday, December 11th, 2022.  Cocktails at 11:30 am and dinner starting at 12:15 PM. (reason earlier times is due to Post 347 is first of two parties at WISCO) This invite is for all Post 347 members, Auxiliary and SAL members and guests.  COST IS:  $25.00 per person.

EMAIL ADDRESS:  We have several email addresses that don’t work anymore.  Please let us know if you have a change so we can update our mailing list.   Mail or send us an email, or text/call Dick Waechter at 920-918-2013 with the changes. It not only saves us money on mailings but also saves us a lot of time and work.  Also, we will email you the minutes from all our membership meetings. Thanks

SAL MEMBERS:  We have not received the new SAL membership cards from National Headquarters.  We have requested and received “blank cards” and can type in the information.  If you have or have not received renewal information from National, you can still mail the dues ($13.00 per year) to us and we can process it on line.

BASEBALL BREAKFAST:  Sunday, November 13th, 2022, at the Brownsville Community Center.  Serving from 8:00 AM till 12 Noon.  This money helps the Theresa/Lomira Legion Baseball team.  This last summer T/L Legion Baseball team and Brownsville Athletic Association hosted the Junior Legion Baseball Tournament.   Brownsville AA then donated $5000.00 to the T/L team.

SCHOLARSHIP RAFFLE – So far, we have fallen somewhat short of our goal. This money goes to four (4) HS Scholarships ($500.00 each) given out to Lomira HS (2), Campbellsport HS (1) and to Oakfield HS (1).  The rest of the money is given out to the two (2) $100.00 drawing each month for 12 months.  All winning tickets each month are then put back in and eligible for further drawings.

Scholarship Raffle Ticket winners 2022:
AUG – Mary Rammer & Dwayne Wolf
SEP – Ron Danielson & Dustin Heins
OCT – Donald Harter & John Laudolff

BLOOD DONORS – Members who donate blood are asked to let us know so we can notify the American Legion Dodge County Blood Drive committee.  Again, you can email the post or text/call Dick Waechter (920-918-2013).
