Commander's Call

We have just started a new fiscal year with the legion, let’s make it a good one.

School has started, be careful driving.

September is National disaster preparedness month.

Sept. 2nd is V-J day, so consider asking churches to ring their bells. Encourage the community to recognize Patriot day, Sept. 11th. Celebrate the anniversary of Congress, charter of the American Legion on Sept.16th,perhaps with an event including civic leaders.

Sept. 17th is constitution day, an ideal time for a citizenship program. Provide schools with copies of: " Let’s be right on Flag Etiquette”.

The third Friday of the month is National Pow/Mia Recognition Day.

September is our annual picnic. Come out and enjoy the day with your friends.

Taste of Orland went very well with a lot of our members attending and helping with the sale of our wares.

Do not forget to come out and join the Honor Guard as we open the festivities for the Veterans commission and golf outing on September 10th at 8:00am

Membership started out strong this year. We only need about 50 more members to pay their dues.

When you pay your dues, go online and sign up for the legion (no cost) insurance program. As a member of the legion family you are eligible for the following coverage $5000 no cost to you Accidental Death Protection if traveling on official American Legion business and $1000 accidental death protection for all other covered accidents.

Go To; The Lit.com  Scroll to products and drop down to emergency and accidental no care Legion Care and log in.

Until next month.
