Dear Fellow Legionnaire:
The next meeting of Post 964 will be February 12, 2016. The Executive Board starts at 6:30 PM and the Post meeting starts at 7:00 PM. Looking forward to seeing all our members present.
MEMBERSHIP: As of this newsletter we still have a few holdouts with a 2015 Legion membership card. As of January 1st, we are now into the 2016 Legion year. Please: check your membership card. If it is 2015, then please drop a check to the American Legion, Post 964, P.O. Box 331, Lake Zurich, IL. 60047 for $35.00 as we would like to close the 2015 membership book. For those of you still receiving dues notices from the National Legion office, and you have a 2016 card, ignore it. As a push came to get membership in before the dues increase, the National Legion office was inundated with membership cards from all over the country as well as from overseas Posts as well. I am sure they did not put on extra help. The past dues notices come from a different office, so if they don't receive the information before the scheduled mailing goes out, you get one. If your card is 2016, no to worry. If it is still 2015 drop a check in the mail please.
LEGION DINNER/DANCE: Please see the attached flier. Looking forward to a pleasant evening. We have not done this for many years, so please come out and join us. GUESTS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME.
TEXAS HOLD-EM: The dates are: 26 March, 11 June, 27 August, 12 November. Again volunteers are greatly needed for 3 hours shifts starting at 1 P.M. until midnight. Also kitchen help is needed for taking in orders, from noon until 8 P.M. Sign up at the March meeting. We will need help on the August 27 night as two of the regular members who are usually working will be at the National Legion Convention in Ohio. So drop on by and see how easy it is to do. The funds go into the Post and it is around $1,800. It is your Post: we need you to volunteer a few times a year.
The Post Bar (The Landing Zone) has purchased three new tables and nine chairs for our customer use. Drop by if you have not already and visit, Also the Video Game Company has put in another Video Game Machine.
