      FROM THE ADJUTANTS DESK

Reminder, there is only one meeting each month for November and December. (check the calendar for times and dates) First, I would like to thank Gil for his 12 years as adjutant. Gil is in the process of training Tom Herber on the duties of being adjutant. You can expect Tom to be at the next Legion business meeting on Sep 13. Second, it is that time of year to renew your Legion membership. If you have already paid your dues,  I thank you. If you haven't paid your dues please pay it soon rather than waiting until the last minute. Any current member having financial difficulty can have his/her dues paid through the Walter Riebe Fund.

Adjutant Tom Herber & Gil Hucek
