All members are urged to attend county meetings to become acquainted with fellow members and carry out county activities and interact with other squadrons. We need to support each other's projects and activities.

The Detachment Sons of the American Legion 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 Saturday 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 on our web-site www.sonsdny.org. Need more information? Contact James Coates, Americanism Chairman, PO Box 148, Ionia, NY 14475.
