Commander Puckett reports:

    Now that summer is nearly over, we turn our attention to a full schedule of business with our Regular Membership on Tuesday, September 11th. Our Executive Committee Meetings will resume Tuesday, September 25th. September 2nd is VJ Day followed by Patriot Day on the 9th. The American Legion Charter was approved by Congress on September 16, 1919 and Constitution Day is on the 17th. Your attendance at our regular meetings and patronage at our Post Home is very important and much appreciated. Stay informed on what is going on around the Post. Remember to keep our young men and women serving our beloved country throughout the globe in your thoughts and prayers for a safe trip home when their duties are finished. Thank you!

Chaplain Ken Herkey reports:
    Say a prayer for our troops!


1st. Vice Commander PC:

Ed Tyczka reports:

    We are at 286 paid up members to date. A second notice will probably be coming out from National in September or early October. If you have a 2019 Membership card, dis-regard the second notice. Please remember the Post Chicken B/Q Sunday September 16th. Our regular Saturday night entertainment will start up in September every Saturday night at 8:00PM to 11:00PM, entertainment schedule is posted in the bar-room, on-line and in the hallway, come out and support the Post. Say a prayer for the Troops and enjoy the rest of the Summer.



2nd Vice-Commander:

Katie McCarthy reports:

    Hello all, I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer! Football season is upon us, so we’re having our annual Bills tailgate party in the parking lot at 10:30am on September 9th. Bring your snacks and beverages to enjoy with friends and cheer on our team!! All Bills games will be televised at the Post throughout the season. We have four TVs and a great sound system, so there’s no bad seats. On September 16th we will be having a Chicken BBQ to support the Post; the food is awesome so I hope you can support. Thursday night BBQ will continue for at least a few more weeks; stop in for some good food and a few laughs with your fellow Legion family members.



S.A.L.

Commander Mike McCarthy Reports:

    Thank you to Harvey D Morin post for donating more chairs. They will be used in our rear hall to replace the worn chairs. There are new stanchions and velvet ropes for the post POW table. It looks great and a great improvement to honor POW and MIA’s. We have had some minor repairs that have been addressed and all repaired. Summer is coming to a close quickly. So enjoy your post, support your post and see you at the post soon.

    God Bless are Troops.

    September 17th, 2018 is our next meeting at 7:35 pm.



Auxilary President

Mary Ann Kessler Reports:

    Our August 1st social was a great success! Our 2nd Vice Sandi White did a fabulous job preparing, cooking and presenting a Mexican buffet! The evening was enjoyed by all that attended. Thank you Sandi!

    Our 1st meeting for our Auxiliary new year is Sept 5th, 7 pm. Please get your membership dues into 1st Vice Toni Kruger for the new year 2018-2019. Paid membership by October 1, 2018 qualifies you for our earlier bird special. A drawing for your membership dues paid for the following year. Our Unit is collecting cans of tuna for the West Seneca food pantry, please bring to your Sept. meeting. Our Unit is collecting box tops for the West Seneca Schools. We are also collecting toiletry size soaps, shampoos, lotions, toothpaste etc. for the female Veterans health care bags. Please bring these items to the Unit meetings. Please do not leave at the Post as this will clutter up under the shuffle board table.

    Our Unit is still taking monetary or gift card donations for our Holiday raffle. Tickets will be available soon for our raffle.

    Marching Unit 735 is ending our season. Our last parade for this year is Saturday Sept. 8th Brant Indian Festival, step off is noon. Ladies if you are going continue marching with our Unit or if you would like to join next year. Please contact Sue Solly 716-361-6984.
