Updated House Rules

Due to changes to The American Legion Constitution, and the Department of Georgia Constitution, our Judge Advocate is currently revising the Constitution and Bylaws of Horace Orr Post 29, Inc. In addition, the policies and procedures of the Post have also been reviewed. The Constitution and Bylaws of Horace Orr Post 29, Inc. stipulate that rules and policies pertaining to the day to day operation of the Post are specifically assigned to the Executive Committee.

At the Executive Committee meeting on February 27, 2020, the House Rules and several other policies were reviewed, revised, and approved by the Executive Committee. The updated rules and policies are posted in the Social Quarters, and are filed in a notebook kept in the podium that also houses our Guest Log. A copy will be provided to the leader of each Legion Unit attached to this post. This announcement will be sent to all subscribers of our E-blast, posted on our website, and included in the next newsletter.

Any questions should be directed to the Executive Committee.

SAL Monthly Meeting 2.25.2020

The SAL is holding its general meeting on Tues. Feb 25th at  6:30pm after the Queen of Hearts.  We will be meeting upstairs in the small hall.  This will be an important meeting to discuss potential activities, establish a budget and to discuss charitable giving.    We were the largest post in the State last year, and we would like to continue this rise in membership by also becoming a better post in doing so.  Your Commander and E-Board need your support as we plan,  implement activities and participate in legion activities.  We need your input into these things- so please try to participate and attend our meetings. 

See you Tues. Night!

Trip To Murphy, NC

The Post is planning a trip to Murphy, NC to have an afternoon of fun, gambling, and fellowship.  It is open to all post members. The trip will be Thursday September 19th – we will leave the post promptly at 9AM and depart from Murphy around 4:30 pm.   This is not a legion sponsored event, but an event put together by Milton Dickson.  We plan on having two vans that will hold 15 people each.   The cost of the trip will be approximately $20 per person to cover gas, and insurance.  No smoking on the buses, but we will make stops on the road. Each participant will be given $20 in slot machine credits to play on the machines.  It will be based on first come, first served.

Contact Milton Dickson 678-429-9359 for reservations.

SAL Dues Notice

To all members( including duel members and Jr. members)  of the Squadron 29 of the American Legion – Marietta

Good morning!  Do to the fact that the National Sons of the American Legion have raised our membership costs – we at Post 29 in Marietta must do the same.  Effective immediately our dues for the year 2019-2020 will go from $20.00 to  $25.00.  This is the first increase in our dues in over 15 years.  Our duel member and Jr. member costs will remain the same at $10.00  per member. 

Sr. Vice Commander Randy Wright and Adjutant Tom Rieger have the new cards to handle renewal and new members.  Please try to take advantage of the early bird special – a free breakfast in Oct. – so renew and sign up early to take advantage of this special offer.  

Last year we had 72 new SAL members of Post 29 – Let’s all try to continue to recruit folks that qualify to be SAL members and who are interested in helping veterans and helping the entire American Legion Post 29 family become stronger, better and more viable in the community! 

If you have questions about the increase in dues or any activities / issues with the SAL do not hesitate to give me a call.  I look forward to being of service to each of you and please know that it is a honor for me to serve as your Commander.
