I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas in whatever form you celebrate the season. Also, a Happy New Year to all.


On a sad note, one of our members Alan Stowe passed away this week.


We did not reach our goal of 100% by 31 December. We still need 74 more members to renew their membership. If you do not have your 2023 membership card your membership is now delinquent. If you have a key card or fob, they will not work so please be prepared to renew your membership at that time or before.


We are beginning 2023 with some exciting community service fundraisers.


First, the ALR (American Legion Riders) is hosting a L.E.A.D. (Law Enforcement Appreciation Day) on Sunday 8 Jan. This ride is a fundraiser for C.O.P.S. (Concern of Police Survivors) an organization that takes care of survivors of police killed in the line of duty. A flyer is attached.


Our second one is the Humane Society of Houston County. On Sunday 15 Jan we will host the president Dee Allison and the volunteers who have served for the longest time. We will also be asking you all for donations to support their program. A list is attached to this email, and we will need the items no later than Saturday 14 Jan. Let’s give this deserving organization a helping hand!


In case you didn’t know our Post has a website that has our current calendar. The address is


I thank all of you for your support of our Post in 2022. Let’s make 2023 even better!
