SONS OF THE LEGION SQUADRON 255

 FROM THE COMMANDER'S DESK

Reminder  - Next Sons of American Legion Meeting Always on the First Wednesday of the month at 4:30 PM.  Come on down.

I hope that you and your family are well and safe. As you all aware, the Legion will remain close for the safety of all members. We will keep you updated on when we will resume our business as the report on COVID 19 changes.

Please take care of yourselves. Don’t forget the basics – while staying home to eat healthy, stay hydrated, try to feel the sunshine and fresh air (now that the city is opening local parks for walking or jogging) for at least a few moments every day, rest as much as you can.

We trust and follow the City/County officials and the CDC on their recommendations to stay home and carry on our work. When this is all over, we will meet to discuss where we left off to help the post in whatever events that were cancelled due to this pandemic.

Above all, give and receive love and emotional nourishment during this time…amongst your friends, loved ones and family, however you define them. Take care everyone!!

PINBALL MACHINE AT THE POST.

The SALs put a pinball machine in the Post. The SALs will be responsible for the funds and repairs as needed to the machine. Join the pinball competition for prizes.

Have you read the brochure “Sons of the American Legion – Why I Belong” and understand how we support “Our Country”, “Our Family”, and “Our Veterans”.

Dues for 2021 –Please renew early for 2021 and we can obtain 100% membership by the end of the year.

POST/CANTEEN GUESTS

MUST BE SIGNED IN BY A POST MEMBER!!!!!

Guests are defined as anyone who is not an American Legion, Auxiliary or SAL from any Post.

The bartenders do their best to have guests signed in but ULTIMATELY, it is every member’s responsibility to ENSURE that all their guests are properly signed in every time they visit the post.

Members who fail to follow this simple rule risk losing their canteen privileges for a time period to be determined by the E-Board.

PERSONAL CONDUCT AT THE POST

All members, and their guests, are reminded that the Post is Family Friendly and as such, everyone needs to be mindful of how they conduct themselves.

There is no place at the Post for being rude or disrespectful to others, and at absolutely no time should any type of physical altercation be initiated inside the Post or in our parking lot.

Bartenders, with the assistance of Post Officers, will monitor behavior and if they feel a member or guest is crossing the line, that member or guest will be warned to stop.  If the behavior continues the member or guest will be asked to leave the Post and it will be noted in the log book for further review by the Canteen Manager and E-Board.

Remember, our motto is that we are the “Friendliest Post” so let us all work to ensure “we” remain friendly.
