   FROM THE COMMANDER


  

                         

  A VERY SAD DAY”

 

    It is with deep regret that I have to inform the membership the

passing of one of our own, Sandy Brown has left us all to go to a much

happier place.

    The passing of Sandy will leave a giant void in all of us that will be

impossible to replace. Sandy put up a hell of a fight against that

dreaded disease.

    She will be remembered by all of us with that

infamous laugh and will we ever forget “COOL BEANS”?

Whatever that means!!!! That old adage “GONE BUT NOT

FORGOTTEN” will forever hold true.

Love you baby!!!! There will be a memorial for Sandy May 12th

at 1pm.

 

 May is going to be a very busy month, starting with the ROTC dinner

 

May 3rd at 6:00pm followed by a slew of award ceremonies throughout

the month, which is a joy to present these honors to very deserving

young students as they move into adulthood.

(hope they know what they are in for).

 

May 5th is Post E-board at 9:00am followed by Post meeting May 10th

at 6:00pm

 

May 19th is our annual Constitutional Conference starting at 9:00am

and running until everybody gets winded!!

 

May 18th is our Post dinner with Roast chicken as our prime meal.

 

May 28th is Memorial Day with our service at 11:00am by the flag

pole.

 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 2018 DUES OF $50.00

       THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
