In December, 2019, our Christmas Dinner turned out great. We had good fellowship and lots of good food. Thanks to all who helped setup and cleanup.
In January, we had one candidate for the Oratorical Contest. Madison Sanders, from Social Circle High School, came in third and won $100.00. Our thanks to Steve Tantham, for supervising the event. Madison attended Girls State, last year. She is now interested in coaching for Girls State.
We have four candidates for Boys State, from Social Circle High School. They will go to Riverside Military Academy in Gainesville for one week. The fee is $250.00, for each, donated by the Post. Our membership donates $50.00 to each candidate, for extra spending money. We are looking for sponsors to help support our candidates. Thanks to David Lopshire for getting theses young men ready for Boys State.
Our Veterans Memorial in Social Circle Veterans Parks has space for more plaques. Please contact Commander Wayne Harrington, for an application. This is one of our on going fundraisers. We still have members, who have not contributed.
We still have not met our goal on membership. If you still have a 2019 membership card, it has expired. Dues are $30.00 per year. Let's get out and recruit new members, soo we can reach our goal.
Please remember any Veteran, with an Honorable Discharge is eligible to join the American Legion!
For God and Country,
Wayne Harrington, Commander
