SAVE THE DATE
The Children’s Christmas Party will be on December 9th from 11am to 1pm at the Post. Members are encouraged to bring their kids or grand kids. This fun event will include: lunch for attendees, activities for the little ones, and a visit from Santa to hand out some presents.
NEW FOR 2024
Post 11 will start sending the newsletter by email on a voluntary basis. Members can continue to receive a paper copy through the US Postal Service. This change will save the Post money.
Over the next several months, members with an email address in Post records will be contacted to confirm the accuracy of his/her email address. The next newsletter will have information for members without an email address on record and want to add one. This is to avoid having several hundred members contacting the Post at the same time.
FROM THE COMMANDER …
It’s that time again, Pay your Dues!! That is of course, unless you are a Paid Up for Life (PUFL) or a paid Life Member. If you’re an early bird and already have your dues paid, you qualify to come on down for a spaghetti luncheon on Saturday November 4th . The meal will be served from 12:00 to 2:00 PM so enjoy, you deserve it. By the way, we will need membership support for this meal. I’m asking that you coordinate with Keith Goodman so he knows how many can help out. Remember, the mission of the Post and the Legion cannot continue without your membership dues being paid as early as possible.
Veterans Day is a time that is close to our hearts as service members. It’s a time when we can reflect on and remember the time of our individual service to this nation. The good, and the not so good. Here in Brown County, we have several events to consider participating in. There’s the annual breakfast at the Duck Creek VFW Post (Duck Inn) that starts at 8:30 AM, the annual ceremony at the Neville Museum that starts around 10:00 AM and finally, the annual ceremony held at the Green Bay Yachting Club at the mouth of the river. That event starts at 11:00 AM and Post 11 has a key part in this as our Honor Guard will again be presenting the colors at the opening ceremony.
Lastly, it’s time for we, as a people, to remember the struggles of the founding of this nation. Thanksgiving is coming up soon and I want to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Christmas. Grandparents, take the time to tell your grandchildren the stories of the Pilgrims or of Jamestown and share those stories with them. Especially, the little ones.
