A Very Special Thank You

Some of you might have seen this photo (below!) already, but for those who have not seen it, this photo of our Color Guard was taken in February 2016 at the Westby Ski Jump Opening Ceremonies by SAL member Jon Lee.

Jon and an associate of his, Mr. James Taylor from Onalaska, generously donated a poster-sized copy of this photo to the Legion to be displayed in the Legion hall. We are currently having this framed so that it may be proudly displayed.

This is a treasure that will be proudly displayed for many years to come.

A huge thank you to Jon and Mr. Taylor for this donation. Once the public sees this poster, it will be obvious the photographic talent that Jon has.

Vernon County Dairy Breakfast

The Vernon County Dairy Breakfast is scheduled for the first Saturday in June at the Hamburg Hill Dairy Farm near Chaseburg. The address is E2556 Hamburg Ridge Rd, north of Chaseburg off of CTH K. Post 116 will be participating by providing hublot replica uk drivers to chauffer people from the parking area to the grounds and back. No, I don’t know what color the tractors are.

Commanders Message:

I have to start with a note of thanks to everyone in our Legion Family for all of the rolex replica that you provide to our programs, our veterans and our community. I see the successes that we have and it is all because of the rolex replica sale effort put forth by everyone that this happens. It exhibits a real team effort.

May and June, as per usual, are filled with a lot of events. Memorial Day is right around the corner and hot on its heals is the annual Chicken Q. We are going to need a lot of rolex replica uk with both events. More on that in a minute.

May is officer elections. The following positions are open for nominations: Commander, 1st Vice Commander (Membership), 2nd Vice Commander (Children & Youth), 3rd Vice Commander (Americanism), Chaplain, Historian, Sergeant at Arms, Service Officer and Finance Officer. I am not only going to tell you all to rolex replica sale fulfilling one of these leader-ship positions, I am going to tell you that people in the post need to step up and assume these positions. I will not be accepting a officers nomination of any kind in this month’s elections. If members do not step up, there will be officers positions that will go unfilled. I can’t make it any more clear and plain than that.

Please keep Roger Mathison in your prayers as he recovers from surgery. Roger fills a lot of roles within the Post and he will be out of commission for a little while. This is one more reason why we all need to step up and take charge.

It has been an honor and privilege to serve as commander of this outstanding post. I hope to see many of you at the upcoming events. Gary M. Hess, Commander Post 116
