From Ronald Nickey

From the land of the has beens....


       Hello everyone.   Ron Nickey here.  By way of a very generous donation to me from a Veterans organization I'm proud to say that i am sponsoring an appreciation for our Post 605 Vietnam Veterans in the form of a picnic.  It is to be held June 15th at Naylors winery from noon till 8pm.  

Invitations will be mailed to all post 605 Vietnam vets in December.   Invitations should be returned to me by March 31st.  Members are free and guests are 5 dollars. If you have a friend that is a Vietnam vet and not a member of Post 605 you may bring them in addition to your guest but must know by March 31st. If any non-member vets that bring a copy of their DD214 I will pay their first year membership.

 I hesitated to charge for guests but the size of this undertaking is extensive. Any left over funds will be donated the Dallastown post 605 relief fund. 

I promise a good day of camaraderie and patriotism.  If for some reason you are a 605 Veteran and do not get an invitation there will be an sign up sheet at the post in December so we can update your address.

As with everything volunteers will be needed.  The amount and what's needed nowhere close to being figured out but I will come to each groups meetings to fill you in


IMPORTANT NOTICE:  In an effort to accommodate everyone and ensure all interested parties are able to come,there will be two vans available to pick people up and return them to the post.  In addition, they can transport you to and from your home as long as it is within 10 miles.

Thank you!

Please remember to go to your meetings if there is something you are unhappy with, for example; showing your membership cards for each & every purchase. Your bartenders are only enforcing the rules your membership body have imposed. Because it is in your Legion by-laws, we Must complie or be sited by the LCBE. If you don Not like this or any other rule, Go to Your Meetings & have it Changed. we ALL have a voice, Use it! Don't take it out on your bartenders & staff if you chose Not to go to the meetings & have things changed.

Be a part of the SOLUTION Not the Problem!
Thank you,
L.H.

Death Benefits Papers

I have been putting reminders in the newsletter each time. Please follow thru with signing up. Also remember if you have a change of address to let us know or if your beneficiary has moved or changed please inform us. This is the only way your beneficiary can be paid the stipend. Please keep all information updated for us. I am hoping all do this as we are going to be asking you for email address as well. Any way we can contact is going to be good for you and the Post. 

CHANGE OF ADDRESS

 Remember that if you have a change of address, you must notify the Post, this will help in many ways, it will get your Death Benefit paid, it will get your monthly Legion magazine delivered to you, it will get your membership card sent to you.
