I want to wish everyone in the Oswego County American Legion family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. As you are celebrating with your families, take some time to think of our military who are serving at the present time and who have served. Elaine Johnson, County President.
The next regular monthly meeting will be held at Russell Horning Post 601, Parish on Saturday December 5th at 10:00 AM. Each Unit is expected to have representatives at each county meeting. This is an obligation the Unit President assumes when she takes her office.
The buzz word for membership is "VETERANS ADVOCATES". Become a DO BEE and start the buzz about membership for 2010.
Target date #3 is 100% of goal by January 1st, 2010 (5-$75 drawings). Let's get buzzing, bees! We are doing very well so far.

Unit poppy orders must be sent in right away so you can get them in time for distribution.
Oswego County is planning an auxiliary study course at Fuller-Taylor Unit 915 for either our March or April county meeting. Membes from all nine units should attend since we can always learn more about our organization.
