  1. The American Legion Warrington Post 240 8666 Gulf Beach Highway Pensacola FL 32507-2639 ADDRESS SERVICE REQUESTED Nonprofit org. U.S. Postage PAID Pensacola, FL Permit No. 385 TheVictor’s Voice FOR GOD AND COUNTRY MARCH 2013 Commander’s Corner– February was an interesting month. We had visits from Department as well as District. We all know that elections are right around the corner so I am expecting more visits. Please make them feel welcomed to OUR outstanding Post. Thus far everyone has been impressed with the friendliness and hospitality everyone has given. You all rock!!!! March is going to be busy. 17 March we will be celebrating American Legion’s 94th birthday. I am tossing around a couple of ideas for the main course (swaying toward Bar-B-Q chicken and Ribs) but need help for the side dishes. Please sign up on the list. The first annual Seafood Fest is on track for 23 March. We will be having shrimp, crawfish and oysters in a cajun boil. We will have mild and hot as well as all the fixings. Price will depend on the cost when we get to New Orleans to buy the seafood. Still looking for volunteers to plan and assist with OUR Tribute to Vietnam Veteran’s on 27 April. See me if you are interested. First nominations for all the Legion Officers will be taken at this month’s General membership meeting.

For God and Country, Richard Raborn, Director Auxiliary– A nominating committee will be selected at the March meeting. Election of new officers will be held in May.  Think about who you would like to see in office or run for a position yourself.  Mardi Gras was great, but a lot of disappointment that there were so few Auxiliary members to help.
