December Lineup

12/3 Legion breakfast 12/4 Commander's Call at Post 60 That's all we have for December. We do have a fish fry on January 19th. Make plans to attend. Now on another item. We had a breakfast yesterday, 12/3. We had the lowest attendance of any breakfast we've had. We need more of you to come down and enjoy a $6.00 breakfast. We need to do better on these events. A lot of hard work goes in to this and if we can't get enough customers to show up that means less we have to work with for the veterans we serve. Think about it. Have a great Christmas season, John Header Commander Our current membership stands at 325 members. November closed with 211 members paid, 80.23% of our 2018 membership goal. We have 109 members that have not yet paid for the 2018 membership year. With the Holidays approaching, please renew your membership now before they expire in February with loss of continuous years. You can mail your renewal to American Legion Post 60 @ 601 W Pioneer PKWY, Arlington, TX 76010, drop it off at your next visit to the Lodge or renew online at If you need any assistance, please call me, 817-478-7838 or send an email to Have you considered being a Paid Up For Life (PUFL) Member?
