      FROM THE AUXILIARY PRESIDENT
Happy New Year!! Reminder if you have not paid your membership dues, please send them between now and Jan. 31st. The auxiliary membership depends on the family of the Veterans to exist so we hope that  our Legionnaires will encourage their mothers, spouses, children, and grandchildren to become members.
 
SPECIAL RECOGNITION:  All our members are important to us. We would like to thank Mary Krutz and Cathy Landry for putting up the display at Associated Bank for Veterans Day. Thanks to all that helped with the Kids gift and candy drive through. We were able to gift thirty-one kids. So happy Penny enjoys shopping and wrapping. She did such an excellent job. A nice lunch was provided for the volunteers. Thank you, Lena and Keith.
 
PROGRAMS: Help is needed in finding donors and contacting school counselors for our Badger Girls program and planning our strategy for the Poppy Distribution Program. Please contact Mary Krutz if you are interessted in helping 920-680-7938. These are short term commitments.
 
WELCOME RECENT NEW MEMBERS: Amy Salesky, Diane Schlies, Gail Quintanilla. Transferring into the Unit: Jilayne Robinson and Nancy Burns.

      FROM THE ADJUTANTS DESK
Well fellow veterans it’s a new year and I pray that it’s a good year for you and your family. The Post is doing poorly this year with memberships. We currently have 396  renewals in giving us a 65% rate so if you haven’t renewed yet please do so it only helps the post to do the things we do to help our veterans and their families.  We understand that the virus is making it very differcult for some of us to pay the dues but we would like to let you know that we are here to help with paying your dues just call and give your name and phone number. Call 920-465-6841 or email legionpost0011@gmail.com
 
The Post is looking for members that would like to serve on one of our committees:
   1.)  Audit Committee - you would meet twice a year and balance the check book and savings account (the same as doing your check book at home)
   2.) Building Committee – Survey the building for any items that may need repair and report those items to the Executive Board for approval.
Please if interested call we could use the help.
 
If anyone has an interest in being Adjutant or Treasurer these positions are still open. Call the office if interested and leave your name and phone number and if not in when you call leave a message.
Adjutant Gil Hucek
