NOV/DEC 2018 NEWSLETTER
POST 347 WEBSITE: I hope everyone has a chance to go online and look at our website. We have been working daily on updating and added new things. I started adding photos of Post 347 Legion members from our “wall of fame”. I will also be adding pictures of our past commanders. If anyone has ideas of more to do for our website, contact Dick Waechter through the Post email address above, or call (920) 918-2013.
MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL: I am in the middle of submitting membership renewals “online”. If you haven’t renewed yet, send your renewal money to our Post address (see above). If you lost your renewal notice, send your $35 anyway. I have all the pertinent information and with just a couple of key strokes can submit your renewal. I will then mail your 2019 card to you. We would truly appreciate processing your renewals quickly for us to qualify for incentive awards. Second District has set a goal for 100% by December 31, 2018. At present we are only at 65.5%. Added along with this newsletter are some of the new cards for members that have already renewed.
