SQ Bingo – Monday 12.16.2019

Thanks for all who came out this week. Good attendance is all we need to keep this BINGO party going!

We are experimenting with Bar Bingo in the Social Quarters. We are trying to host this most Monday evenings from 6:00-8:00. This is not a traditional paid Bingo game with cash prizes, and it’s not open to the public. But for our members, we make it fun, and we do have prizes we think you’ll like. If members like this, we’ll expand it and make it a regular thing.

Oratorical Contest

KNOW ANY KIDS WHO COULD USE OVER $20,000.00  IN CASH  AND   SCHOLARSHIPS?

I’m sure many of you remember earlier this decade when Post 29 was involved in the Legion’s High School Oratorical Scholarship Program. In fact, in 2010 our contestant  won the Department Contest and proudly represented us in the National Finals in Indianapolis. Well, we’re past due to send another winner to Indy!  So once again this year we’ll participate in “A Constitutional Speech Contest,” offering youth in grades 9 through 12, traditional or home schooled, a chance to grow in poise, speaking ability, leadership skills, and a shot at serious cash and scholarships. The initial contest will be held here at Post 29 on January 18 at 2 p.m. To learn all about the contest, visit  www.legion.org, go to the bottom left, “Programs,” and click on “Oratorical.”  Then, to learn more, and the specific dates, times and locations, please contact our Oratorical Committee Chair, Roy Lantz, at 770-906-6175, or roy@roylantz.com
