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 The Victor’s Voice FOR GOD AND COUNTRY March 2010 Post 240 website: www.americanlegion240.org Commanders Corner Our Fish Fry, Friday Nite dance and the Chili Cook-off events in February were all a great success. The Auxiliary MARDI GRAS was fantastic. Please check your calendar for our March events. Our Officers and volunteers work very hard to make these events a success. Please come out and show your appreciation for the volunteers who work very hard to make these events a success for our Post and for our members. We will have an Initiation Ceremony on 9 March at 1800. Please come and help us welcome our new members into the Post. Also please help us welcome Jim Herd as the newest kitchen Chef. We look forward to working with him. The American Legion is not just a bar – it is a Veterans organization with a responsibility to ourselves, our community and to our families who depend on us. When we join an organization we make a commitment to abide by the bylaws and rules of that organization. We also make a commitment for the greater good of the American Legion. Our General Membership meetings are on the 2nd Tuesday and the Executive Board meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of each month. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend. Problems cannot be resolved via grape vines and emails. Instead of taking 30 minutes to voice your opinion at the bar or writing an email debasing our officers, managers and volunteers do something positive and become a viable member of our Post. For God and Country, Marsha Martin 1st Vice Commander We have had 969 members pay their dues, which gives us an attained percentage of 82%. We need 207 members to pay their dues to reach 100%. Our next Department of Florida Goal is 90%, which is needed by March 3, 2010. I know we can do it. Please welcome our new members: Patrick Sprague, Rachel Robardey, Hope Booth, Michael Fennewald, Noah Lee Sarvis, Drew Deason, Michael Maciag, Kathryn Adams, Jeffery Lee Cain, Michael Thompson and New Transfers into Post 240: Charles Newton and Joseph McNiel. Your Post Officers conducted an inventory of the Lounge last month and cleaned out the Pink Elephant where we repaired old tables and bar chairs. We need volunteers to help with these endeavors that save our Post money. I would like to start a Post Cleanup day starting in April. I need help setting this up. Please come out and support your Post and Lounge. We, the Post Officers can’t do anything for the Post or the Veterans without your support and help.
