   FROM THE COMMANDER


  

“ IT’S HOT!!!!!!!”

   The dog days of summer are upon us!!! My God it’s hot, looking forward to the cooler weather.

     We made it through another installation and we welcome the new Officers to what we hope is another successful year.  We are welcoming a lot of new members and quite a few transfers from other Posts, let’s make them feel at home.

     Look for new changes around our building inside and out.  Within the next couple weeks we will have new carpeting in the dining hall (just need a cook now) and also in the Aux room.  There will be two new Tiki Huts installed by the pond very shortly, probably by the time you read this.

     We are interviewing several possibilities of leasing out the kitchen which will bring changes to our club depending on membership approval, we will see what happens.

     E-Board meeting will be Saturday August 5th and the Post membership August 10th.  The Post dinner will be August 11th , could use some volunteers to help out.

     August 26th will be a fund raiser for Crossroads Hope Academy with food and entertainment by the Boogiemen, tickets will be on sale.

“STAY COOL”

For God and Country

 ATTENTION!!!

Membership is the life blood of any fraternal organization. Many organizations have seen a serious decline in membership, Post 103 has been very fortunate to maintain our numbers.

Each of us know at least one veteran who is not a member of a veteran’s organization. We are asking each of our members to take the time to ask one qualified veteran to join Post 103.

Charlotte County has a huge population of veterans; Post 103 needs to reach out to these individuals. I ask for your assistance in this recruiting effort.

Please invite your hesitant friends to come to the Post to learn about the good things Post 103 is doing in this community and also become familiar with the American Legion.

        PLEASE PAY YOUR 2017 DUES OF $50.00

       THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT

The Sons are anticipating a great 2017-2018 year. I'm a first time Squadron Commander lucky to be leading an experienced and motivated team. 
  As I enter office I continue to get enthusiastic offerings of support for our upcoming activities. Thanks to those who participated in the restaurant gift card and cash raffle.  Let's face it I would not have come up with such a great prize mix myself. Also, come on out on Friday, August 25 for a nice ham steak and au gratin potato dinner.
