Hello Legion Members.
A warm welcome to Zachary T Majeski, Toby D Edwards, James W Morris Jr and Donald Lee Sollers to Post 136.
Despite the cooler weather, work around the Post continues. And once again, we desperately need volunteers to help around the Post. This Post cannot run as it should without them. Those who are cooking your lunch and are serving you that big juicy hamburger on Friday lunch or washing your supper dishes, please know they are part of the volunteer team making you happy. Say thank you to them.
2024 membership dues-goal 100% membership by December. At the time of this writing, our membership is at a disappointing 71%. How embarrassing for the best Post is the state of Florida. With a goal of 528, only 378 members have renewed. Please help me ask those who have yet to pay for 2024, please do so because the $45 you pay help the programs the Post sponsor; i.e., our veterans, community and the school.
SIDE NOTE: Effective on the 1st of February, due to overhead, prices on food and drinks will increase.
Upcoming events for a busy February and March:
