We have not received official word yet, but I expect to have our annual “cookie drop” sometime in January. This is an important fund raiser for the Post. Depending on the number of cases of cookies we will deliver to the Girl Scouts will determine of number of volunteers we will need. I expect we will need about 12-18 volunteers. This will commence about 0800 and will continue until approximately 1500 hours. The Post will furnish lunch for all. As soon as I hear from the Elks as to the date and location, I will get that information out. On the schedule you will see we have (2) breakfast events, and (1) dinner event. All of these events are fund raisers for the Post. The more people we have come in to eat brings more revenue to the Post. Please come out and support the Post. Dues. As of last week we were at roughly 87% of our target for dues renewal. We have about 40 who have yet to pay. It is important to get your dues money in to continue your years of service to the Legion. I hope all of you had a great Christmas and will have a Happy New Year. John Header Post Commander
