      FROM THE COMMANDER

First let me say THANKS for all you do! Our breakfast in April was a record setting event and our Booyah sale this past weekend also had an excellent turnout. I haven’t seen the final numbers yet but from what I could gather, it was successful. And that’s all because of the commitment you continue to put into the Post, our Auxiliary, and our Sons of the American Legion Squadron. And I certainly don’t want to forget our Color Guard. Those folks have been double timing it for quite a while now so it would be wrong to not include their activities as well. There are several things working down the pipeline that will keep us busy as we move forward into late Spring and Summer. They are our annual Memorial Day flag posting and recovery at the Allouez Catholic Cemetery and the Brat Barns that will start in May. The exact dates for these events will be posted in our Calendar so please make some time to help out. Right now, we have our first Brat Barn on May 24th, and our second is scheduled for June 7th. The third and potentially last one is scheduled just before the Holiday on June 28th. These are all Fridays and if you can help out for a couple hours, it would be appreciated deeply. We also have a State Department Convention coming up in July and that will be in Appleton. If you want to go and see what goes on, let either Tom or I know. In closing, please let me again Thank you for Everything you do on behalf of the American Legion, and in particular, Post 11. Have a safe and wonderful summer and we’ll see you at our meetings!

Commander Bill Kaczmarek

 

      FROM THE AUXILIARY PRESIDENT 

1st- Another VERY successful breakfast thanks to Lena, Keith and all the support helpers. We set another attendance record of 145.

2nd- Booyah/ bakesale. We sold out in 15 minutes, no surprise there. A huge thanks to all who pitched in to make it happen.

3rd- Programs: Mark your Calendars May 11th for Poppy Sales. Yes only 1 day this year, so let's make it count. Our goal is to have as many of the time slots filled from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at all 5 stores. Last I saw we were still in need of people at Hi Vee. Thanks to all who donated.

4th- Veteran Support: The Auxiliary voted to donate $500 to a veteran family (neighbors of Cathy Landry) who have fallen on hard times. $ 250.00 of that came from Gloria Kellner's memorial donation per Gwen's request. Mary Van Egeren is writing a grant to help support the Community Center for veteran residents of Cottage Courts.

5th- Children and Youth - our partnership with the Nicolet Elementary school Family Food pantry is going well. We have donated over 4 large bins of dry grocery items. Thanks to all who helped donate. Our post again held Youth Government Day on April 16th. Terry Quatsoe and John Hoes were Cochairpersons. Cathy Landry also pitched in to help. Over 40 students from various high-schools attended.
