Spring is in the Air!
It’s time to spring the clocks forward, Daylight Savings Time begins on Sunday March 8th. As we approach spring and move into summer be on the look-out for events happening at the post. We have plenty of events scheduled through June so check out our website at www.americanlegionpost276.org for more details.
The Legion Riders’ Blessing of the Bikes is scheduled for April 25th with breakfast at 9am, prior to the blessing. Don’t forget our Annual SAL St. Patrick’s Day Meal happening March 17th. We also have our Fish Fry scheduled for June 6th featuring music by Jerry and the Heartaches.
The Bluegrass Marathon Jam held on February 22nd was another great success attended by hundreds. I want to thank everyone who volunteered during the 12-hours of non-stop Bluegrass music. All proceeds will be donated to the Fisher House with presentation scheduled for March 27th at 6pm in the Lounge.
Membership continues to progress as we continuously hit our goals and doing better than this time last year. So, if you have not yet renewed, please submit your payment. You can do it online or drop off the payment in the Lounge. I want to welcome our new members and those who transferred. Remember that we are always looking for volunteers.
Don’t forget to join me, our Officers and other members every second Thursday of the month at 1900hrs for our General Membership Meeting. Your attendance is important and requested. You are the post and your ideas, recommendations and/or suggestions matter and are welcomed. I’m asking for your support. So please join me and the other officers. It is only once a month for an hour.
As we enter the 2020 election year, I would like to remind everyone that The American Legion is a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization and does not show preference for or against any candidate or political party. You are encouraged to participate in the process but while engaged in partisan activities you should do so without wearing the American Legion Cap or other Legion attire. You should also refrain from posting any political or partisan propaganda in the post. Visit our website to read the Department of Maryland’s Nonpartisanship e-Bulletin Memo.
Finally, I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter!!!
God Bless You all!
