      FROM THE COMMANDER
Remember there is only one meeting for the months of November and December. We had our booyah sales in Sept. it went fast about ½ hour to go thru 75 gals. Most was take-outs but we did a few eat in also. The ticket sales for our raffle wasn't as we expected we barely broke even. If everyone would purchase their sheet of tickets the Post could make as much as $5000 well maybe next year will prove to be better. The holidays are coming up we will be having a drive thru for the Kid's Christmas gift give away again this year. This will be starting at 10AM with Santa handing out the gifts. I wish everyone a safe and happy season and please remember all our troops still serving and all our Veterans.
Commander John Akey
 
      FROM THE POST 11 HISTORIAN

Please read the inserts the have mailed with this newsletter and if you feel like you qualify contact your local County Veterans Service Officer to get help if you think you were exposed.
Brown County Service Officer is Joe Aulik and he can be reached at 920-448-4450 or www.browncountywi.gov/veterans.
Post 11 Historian Cathy Landry
 
      FROM THE AUXILIARY PRESIDENT
Welcome to Fall. This is always a busy time for the Auxiliary. Reminder if you have not paid your membership dues, please send them between now and Dec. 31st. The Auxiliary membership depends on the family of the Veteran to exist so we hope that our Legionnaires will encourage their spouses, children and grandchildren to become members.
Special Recognition: All our members are important to us. We would like to give special recognition to Lena Goodman. Lena is our Unit secretary; she and her husband Keith cook for breakfasts and special events; and she is a key person in getting an AED devise and special training for our Post.
Program Idea: One of our ideas for outreach to our members is to call and/or visit with both Auxiliary and Legion members who are shut ins. If you are interested in helping with this program, please call me.
Training: Some of the members were able to attend a special training put on by the Auxiliary department. We hope this training will help us become a more active Unit.
Reminder: Please keep track of your Volunteer Hours, as the annual report is due right around the corner. Thanks to all who help our ALA Unit to be successful.
President Mary Van Egeren  -  920-737-5587
 
      FROM THE ADJUTANTS DESK
The 2022 membership dues notices have been sent out so Pay early and get an Early Birc stamp on your membership card this means a free spaghetti dinner on November 6th and this includes the Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion. So, if you and your spouse are members of one of these your meal is free and if you haven't renewed yet you can pay at the door and receive your stamp. Non-members cost for the meal is $8.00.
So far this year we have lost 10 members for different reasons so please keep them and their families in your prayers.
Membership renewals for 2022 are coming in very slow so if you can renew your dues please do so ASAP this would help the Post a lot. If for some reason you can't renew please contact the post we would be more than happy to help you keep your membership.
On behalf of all the Officers of the Post may we wish you a safe deer hunt and a Happy Thanksgiving and a very Merry Christmas and New Year
Adjutant Gil Hucek
