The Fundraiser is scheduled for October 10 in the Activity Center from 11am to 8PM. This event will help pay for the remodeling project in the bar area. We are seeking Legion members to help out by taking shifts. A sign up sheet is located in the bar area. This would also be a good time to renew memberships for the Legion, SAL and Ladies' Auxiliary.
In July the National Service Act was signed into law. The American Legion National Executive Committee amended the organization's Preamble. It now reads:
For God and Country, we associate ourselves together for the following purposes:
To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America;
To maintain law and order;
To foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism;
To preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in all wars;
To inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation;
To combat the autocracy of both the classes and the masses;
To make right the master of might;
To promote peace and goodwill on earth;
To safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy;
To consecrate and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.
What this means is that all men and women who served, or are serving, are now eligible for membership in the American Legion.
