 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

    I wish to thank you for a wonderful November.  We had a great Pork Tenderloin meal with more help than we ever had.  I was pledged support at the November meeting and everyone came through.  I fervently hope this is the beginning to revitalizing the Squadron as a whole.  I also want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a safe, healthy and Happy Holiday Season.

   Right now we have a few position changes which prompted us to set up a special election on the 9th of January, our regular meeting.

   Our meal for December will be Ham Steak, sweet potatoes and green beans.

“Hope to see you all there”
