Merry Christmas

It's nearly Christmas and time to reflect on what we have accomplished so far this year. How many goals have been met? How many projects completed? How many new members have you signed up? There are lots of eligible members out there, you just have to ask if they belong to The American Legion. If not, offer them an application blank. It is really easy. Try it.

The 2010 Mid Winter Conference will be held on January 22 and 23, 2010. Legion sessions are at the Desmond Hotel and Auxiliary sessions at the Marriott Hotel, 189 Wolf Road, Albany. The National Auxiliary President has been invited and will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon.

Remember TEAMWORK IS THE KEY TO OUR SUCCESS. Leadership is a great committee because it is a KEY in every other committee. Everyone is a leader in her own right. Share your knowledge! Share your leadership skills! It could be contagious!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from National Headquarters!
'Tis the season! All of us at your ALA National Headquarters wish you a joyous and blessed Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year. As we celebrate this season of gift-giving, please continue to remember our troops, service members, veterans and their families with your prayers and good deeds. We live in freedom and can celebrate our holiday traditions only because of the price our veterans have paid. When you see a candy cane, think symbolically of the red as the sacrifice of the One plus the ones in uniform who gave their ultimate sacrifice for us.

Peace be with you and yours as you gather with family and friends. In observance of the holidays,

LEGION MEMBERSHIP: The next target date for Legion membership is January 13th with a goal of 80% to be paid by then. Currently as of 12/19/2009, NY State is 26th in the nation, the 5th District is #5 out of 10, Oswego County is #61 out of 63 counties.
