      FROM THE COMMANDER

Our membership is going along well. We are over 74% for the year. We urge anyone who has not paid their dues yet to send them in.
    Our big fund raiser is our semi annual booyah sale which is on April 29. This means we will need help with cutting veggies on April 28 at 9 am. We will have our Easter Egg Hunt for the children on April from 10 am to 1 pm
     I wish to thank the four members who showed up on April 20 to help clean up the building: Bob Haglund, Bill Kaczmarek, Keith Garland, and Mike Dugan.
     We are setting up dates for brat barns. We will need people to step up and help. Dates and times will follow in future newsletters.

      FROM THE AUXILIARY PRESIDENT

   Membership: Congratulations to Unit 11 on achieving 100% for our 2023 membership year. Special thanks to Shirley Willis and Diane Schlies for leading this effort. Even though we reach our goal, we still need members. Every one of our members need to be afffiliated with a veteran through blood, marriage, or adoption, so Legionaires we ask that you help us with our membership by encouraging family members to join.
   Americanism: We were fortunate to receive generous donations from the Schneider Foundation and the GB Packers for Badger Girls to send one girl from each of the area high schools. Badger Girls State is a 6 day Government Leadership Conference sponsored by the American Legion Auxiliary and held in June at UW-Oshkosh in June. If you have a young lady in your family that is a junior in high school and interested please contact Mary Krutz 920-680-7938. We do consider home schooled or private alternative schools as candidates. 
   Children and Youth: In January, we donated school supplies to Danz Elementary. They were very appreciative and couldn’t thank us enough.
   For Veterans: Associated Bank associates and Auxiliary members teamed up to make over 100 Valentine’s Day cards that were distributed to veterans.
   Poppy Program: March 28th  at 6 pm we will be preparing the donation request mailing to our Post membership. We can always use help stuffing and labeling envelopes. Actual poppy distribution days will be May 12 and 13. We are looking for help from both our Legion and Auxiliary members. Money collected from our Poppy Donations is used to fund our veteran programs.
   Fund Raisers: The Auxiliary will again have a bake sale at the Legion Booyah sale. In March and April, we will be participating in the soup and salad luncheons.

          President Mary Van Egeren  -  920-737-5587 - Mary Krutz - 920-680-7938
 
      FROM THE ADJUTANTS DESK

Please check out the inserted sheet. This is what we are planning for our 100 year celebration. Should prove to be a good time. We are also looking to have some vehicles available for show. If you can spare some time to volunteer please give the Adjutant a call or leave a message at 920-465-6841.  Election of officers is coming up in June so if you would like to run for one of the position please have someone turn your name in. Positions coming up for vote 2nd Vice Commander, Finance Officer, Adjutant, Chaplain, two Sergeants-at-arms. Nominations will be accepted starting the first meeting in May. Elections will take place at the first meeting in June and the officers elected will take office at the second meeting in June.  Note:   Please check your membership cards we have a number of people that haven’t renewed their 2019 dues. Our Post will turn 100 years old this year and it would be great to be at 100% membership. If you have any concerns about your membership call Gil at 920-465-6841 and I’m sure we can work something out.   

Adjutant Tom Herber & Gil Hucek
