Good Day Members of Legion 256
First off I'd like to thank all the members who have done so much work and volunteer time since our Legion has re-opened. Without all of you we would not be having the successes we have had.
This coming week we will have our first General Meeting. It's a busy time of year and we have lots to discuss, specifically the Poppy Campaign, Remembrance Day, and our yearly donations. As well, next month are the elections for 1st Vice, Secretary, Treasurer, and committee members. I know already that we will be needing a new bar manager and donations chair. The sign-up stand for the open positions have been posted in the foyer. There have been members who have come forward stating they have an interest in filling a couple positions, but if you have an interest in being a member of the executive, just write your name beside the position you are interested in. If you are interested in being a committee member, please write the position you are interested in beside your name.
The 3 WINNERS of the SEPTEMBER MEMBERSHIP INCENTIVE program are Cde Dave Waddell, Cde Wayne W. Waddell and Cde Darren Papish. You will be contacted by our Membership Chair Cde Pat Hale.
