Welcome to the Waynesboro American Legion!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

    I want to wish you and your family members of the Waynesboro American Legion a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and a very prosperous 2017.
     This has been a very exciting year for our Legion!  We are facing so many wonderful opportunities as well as challenges.  We have had so many positive changes among our ranks, both membership as well as with our employees and many volunteers. I cannot thank you all for your generous contributions to this Legion. We can only provide support to our Veterans and our community sponsored events by the support we receive from our membership. None of this would be possible without our membership! Let's keep up the good work that we all do to make 2017 a very good year for our Legion and the surrounding community.
     We are having our membership appreciation party on December 17th so get your tickets now! The membership party is a closed event and will be open to current members only! We need to know how many to cook for so purchase your tickets for this event at the bar. We are also having our meat giveaway and events for the children this month so please see the calendar for dates.
     Remember to renew your Dues Now! Don't wait for the rush and forget! Any member who does not renew after January 31st will have to re-apply for membership. We will always accept new members for our Post, Sons and Ladies, but we may soon have to limit our social membership due to overwhelming interest in our Legion. We need more Veterans, Sons of Veterans and Women of Veterans to join our ranks and to also help fill needed volunteered positions on all of our Executive Committees and Board of Directors. Join up and Volunteer!
     Anyone wishing to help out with other volunteered events such as our bar bingo and children events please see myself or any other board member, leave a message and someone will get back with you. You may also come to our meetings, see the events calendar for which one and dates.
     One of our projects for 2017 is the lady's upstairs bathroom remodeling. We do have some serious repairs that are needed and will have to shut down the bathroom to complete them. The floor needs to be completely removed and replaced. We do have a lady's room downstairs for your use and we will attempt to perform this project during our slow time if possible. The good news is that the ladies will have an up to date bathroom with a solid floor! Any ideas or if you would like to help with this project please see myself or Beckie Gaver. The blueprints are being drawn up now and we will definitely need some extra help for manual labor tasks as well as professional services to keep our expenses down.
      Tis the season to start thinking about our many programs and scholarships available to our children! We have scholarships available from the Post, SAL and Ladies Aux to our High school students. We also have Oratorical and Essay contests to earn money for college. Looking out to June 2017 we also have our Keystone Boys State and State Police Youth Week Camp available to our children to attend and get some valuable information and experiences. The Ladies Auxiliary and Sons offer similar camps as well. Check out our web site for more information or see one of our board members for more information.

     And as always, I will mention what our SAL and Ladies Aux are doing for our Post, for they are an essential part of what we do! They, too, need volunteers to perform their functions! Their activities support the overall agenda of this Legion and the members within. Please consider volunteering for a position on one of our many boards, or for functions that we do for our Veterans, Members and Community. I truly feel that a much larger group of volunteers working together as one can accomplish many more good things and continue to keep this Legion a very essential part of our Community. So make your new year's resolution to volunteer at the Legion!
