SONS OF AMERICAN LEGION
SONS OF THE AMERICAN LEGION
All members are urged to attend county meetings to interact with other squadrons and support each other's projects and activities. The December Sons county meeting will be held on Tuesday December 15th at Fuller-Taylor Squadron 915 in Central Square at 7:00 PM.
The detachment SAL Americanism Committee sponsors an essay contest which is open to all NY schoolchildren in the 1st thru 5th grades. The essay contest topic is “What America Means to Me.” This year there will be a winning entry for each grade level and they receive a $100 US Savings Bond and a $50 Pizza Party for their classroom.
Deadline for the contest is Sat. May 1, 2010. The winning entry will be notified prior to the school year ending. Squadrons should contact local elementary schools and get the word out. This is an excellent way of encouraging students to learn about their great Nation in these days of spreading Patriotic uncertainty. Copies of the application are available at our website www.sonsdny.org. Need more info? Contact James Coates, Americanism Chairman, PO Box 148, Ionia, NY 14475.
