At the general meeting on January 6th, Fifth District Commander Al Jackson presented Post 29 Junior Vice Commander George Grindstaff with recognition of his accomplishment of earning the Gold Brigade status for his outstanding efforts, recruiting over 50 new members to the Legion.
Not shown, but Junior Vice Commander Ed Bruce was awarded Silver Brigade for his membership efforts.
Friends, there are many scams out there on the internet, email, and over the phone.
We’ve become aware of a scammer using the name Billy Newman claiming to be from The American Legion, selling Lifetime Memberships. This person is not with The American Legion. Do not give anyone your bank information over the phone, especially this person claiming to be with The American Legion.
Stay safe. If you have any questions about membership, you may always contact George, Ed, or any board member.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Thank you to all who have renewed your 2020 membership which expired December 31. We are a closed Post and you are required to have your current 2021 Membership Card on your person. As of MondayFebruary 1, we will request all persons present your 2021 Membership Card prior to use of the Social Quarters, Game Room, and Card Room. The Social Quarters Staff will not allow you to enter, or be served without a current, valid ID, or approval from a post officer. Unit officers will be on site most of this week to clear up any issues.
Thanks in advance for your support in this matter, your cooperation will be greatly appreciated !
I am sending out this invitation to our members who have not yet renewed.
Representatives from the Legion, SAL, and Auxiliary will be on hand in the Social Quarters to help you renew your membership in person. Visit us on Tuesday November 17th from 4-6:30PM.
You can also renew online through Legion.com, through our website, from forms available in the Social Quarters that can be processed by the bartenders, or through mailing your renewal in to the Post.
The Social Quarters will still be available to process renewals as before. There will be some forms available in the social quarters to fill out to accompany your dues. The bartenders have been asked to not process renewals if the form is not filled out in its entirety. For any questions or concerns in filling this form out, please contact George Grindstaff and do not take the bartenders time with these matters. With the new guidelines the bartenders have to follow we do not want to add to their growing list of duties.
We look forward to getting your renewals processed just as easily and quickly as before…and hopefully even better. Contact us with any membership questions you may have.
Legion members have likely received an email from The American Legion national office stating that you have been nominated for Lifetime Membership. Please note, this is a legitimate email, but it is also marketing. To become a lifetime member, you will be asked to pay a price based on your age.
If you have any questions, you may contact our Membership Committee.
