SEP/OCT 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.  We will soon be adding a Historical page to include pictures of Post 347 Legionnaires from our “wall of fame”. 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: Membership renewals are in process.  We are now able to renew your memberships online.  I have processed approximately 70 renewals so far.  You can still renew online yourself, otherwise mail your renewal slips from State to Post 347 and we can process it for you.  If you happened to misplace your renewal notice, send your checks to me along with name and personal information and I can process it all online.  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.  Added to this newsletter are the new cards for members that have already renewed.
CORRECTION to letter you received containing the “Scholarship Raffle” tickets recently.  It should have read “two” tickets, not “five” as was originally written.  As written in the letter, the money collected will go to a selected graduating senior from each  the Lomira, Campbellsport and Oakfield High Schools. Two $100 raffle ticket winners are drawn each month at Post 347 membership meetings.  All tickets are returned to the drum for future drawings.
Mail Raffles tickets back to:

SAL Squadron 347 News:
Only a couple of SAL members were at Aug meeting.  It was decided to keep inviting SAL members to the Legion Membership meetings until it is decided how to proceed. So, please feel free to attend our meetings every 3rd Thursday of each month, 6:30 pm.

Dear Legion Members:
We are beginning our new year with only a couple of changes.  I am getting acclimated to the position of Commander.  Truly a new experience.  We also have a new Adjutant who is working hard at processing all membership renewals especially doing the renewals online.  Labor Day weekend is our next Brat Fry.  Probably one of our bigger Brat Frys.  We will be selling Brats, etc. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Aug 30, 31 & Sep 1st.  Come on down to Kountry Korners in Lomira and help support your Legion.

Upcoming events coming up:  September 5th, Dodge County Conference in Beaver Dam, Lunch 6:30 pm, meeting at 7:00 pm;  September 15th, Saturday 9:00am, POW/MIA Silent March in Lodi, WI.  Last year we participated at Germantown, WI;  and our next membership meeting is Sep 20th, 6:30 pm at the Lomira Municipal Complex.

Hope to see you at our next meeting.
Darryn Laitinen
Commander  Post 347
