FROM THE COMMANDER

Election results; Marty McFarland Commander, Jerry Wendt 1st Vice, Dave Corrie 2nd Vice, Ron Woppert Sargent at Arms, and Parnell Burditt for a 4-year term on the Executive Committee.

The Gavel will change hands after the new officers are sworn in by the Department Adjutant Julie Muhle. After the meeting you will be asked to please put your chair away.

Big news!!!  If you want to save money on Legion dues. I found out the National is offering a 3-year membership at the current rate of $40 per year. You must sign up online, or we can help you. You must pay $120.00 up front before 1 July 24. If you have not paid your 2024 dues yet you will have to pay 2024 plus the 3 years. By paying for three years now you save any increase that National or Department may impose down the line. The new rate in is $40.00 per year.  Several members have already taken advantage of this program.

One of our members, Dustin Tycz, is one of the owners of Schmidt and Bartelt Funeral Home. He has offered help any veteran to preplan or at least answer any questions you may have about funeral arrangements.

ALA Unit 91 collects Piggly Wiggly receipts; they use the money for their Scholarship and Badger Girls State. They have a box at the Post, please save the slips for them.

We are the Piggly Wiggly charity of the month.  Please ROUND UP to the nearest dollar when you check out, and that amount will be donated to our post. Please tell family and friends.
