Town and Country Memorial Post 152 will reopen at 1PM on Friday 12 June 2020. Come in and see the newly refurbished facility. Many changes have been made and I think you will like it.

Much of the work was done by members such as: Glen and Joann Lathers, Mike Sherman, Mike Thorp, Bob Lehmiller, Lon and Mi Hathaway, Jeri Hoover, Cliff Zimmerer, John Cannon, Doug Fivehouse,  Jose Cortes, Vickie Irby, Dave Bauer, Debbie Thorp, Homer Clayton, Debbie Kilcoyne, Lori , Angie, and Christina. Lunches were provided during some of the long work days by Carol Bauer, Phyllis Roman and Vickie Irby.  Hopefully I dint miss any names but if I did I will include in my next update.

Please join me in thanking these members for their extra effort in getting this major project completed.

Note: there will be free Hot Dogs for the first 100 members coming into the Post on Friday 12 June, 2020.  PS..There also may be some VERY good drink prices for the early birds.

I have missed the smiling faces (hidden behind masks), but feel free to wear yours if you want. We will try to keep the social distancing and proper care in sanitizing the Post.

As a reminder there will be a General Meeting on 18 June and the Election Of Officers for the Legion will be held Saturday 20 June 2020 at 11am-3pm.

Hope to see you all on Friday.

Yours in Service

Department recognized Riders Chapter 152 or their hugely successful Virtual Ride. Check out the email:

 

From: Jennifer Cooper <jcooper@floridalegion.org>

Subject: Virtual Unity Ride - FINAL District Totals

 

Good morning,

 

First, let me start off by saying CONGRATULATIONS to each and every one of you for making our very first Virtual Unity Ride a HUGE success! The coronavirus pandemic forced us into canceling an annual event that we normally look forward to. However, in true Florida Legion Rider fashion, you took on the challenge and still provided the necessary support to our veterans! 

 

Not only were we able to collectively raise over $60,000 for PROJECT VetRelief's Suicide Prevention Initiative, but we had more participants over the entire state riding for one cause... ending veteran suicide! In fact, all but 2 Districts had Riders represented. 

 

Now, for what you all have been waiting for... The 15th District is this year's winner of the coveted District Trophy!! The trophy will be awarded during the Fall Conference in November, so we hope to see a large representation from the District. A SPECIAL shout out goes to Chapter 152 in District 15 for bringing in over $10,000!! What an outstanding accomplishment that you achieved, especially during uncertain times! 

 

Below is the final leader board with the breakdown of results.

COOL PRIZES

We will be sending out emails to everyone who earned incentives from their fundraising efforts. Since there will not be a Department Convention this year, we are hoping that the Legion Riders District Chairmen will be able to help us distribute everyone's items. This will help us save on shipping costs. Items will come pre-packaged, so you won't have to assemble them or figure out who gets what items. More information will be sent later.

 

SURVEY

Additionally, we are putting together a Survey to send out to everyone who participated to get feedback on our first virtual event. We are looking to incorporate something similar in future rides so that more people can participate. Please encourage everyone to fill it out so that we can make next year's event even better!

 

Again, THANK YOU for all that you continue to do for the American Legion and the veteran community. You guys truly are making a HUGE impact and we are grateful for your support and dedication!
