POST COMMANDER'S CORNER

 

 

29 June 2022

Hello Post 223 Family and Friends!

I want to thank the Post 223 members, family, and friends who attended our Spring Sportsman Day this past weekend. I think everyone had a great time and we gave away some nice guns and other prizes. Attendence wasn't what we hoped for but we did earn money to support our Post and Legion Programs. I especially want to thank the volunteers who made this event possible. We've heard some feedback about the increased ticket cost and are working to address the issue. Unfortunately, due to lack of enough volunteers to prepare and serve the food, we had to resort to catering. While Mission BBQ is excellent, it does come at an increased cost. Additionally, the cost of guns, beverages, and other supplies also had to be factored in to the ticket price. My goal is to reduce the ticket cost for the Fall event, but in order to do that, we need volunteers! If you are interested in helping out, or know of students or others in need of community service, please let us know.

I hope to see you all at the Post for the upcoming Independence Day events!

ATTENTION ALL LEGION MEMBERS AND FRIENDS!!!

Several Post 223 officers were recent victims of a phishing e-mail scam. They received e-mails purporting to be from the Post Commander requesting they purchase gift cards and send photos of the barcode on the back to an e-mail address. These e-mails will typically have a subject line that asks for help or a "request for assistance." Although the e-mail may appear to come from a known individual, the e-mail address will actually be different so anything you send goes directly to the scammer. In most cases, the scammer spends the value of the card immediately and there is no way to recover the loss. If you received similar e-mails, please DO NOT respond to them. The American Legion and Post 223 will NEVER SEND REQUESTS ASKING YOU TO PURCHASE ANYTHING. If you are ever in doubt about the validity of an e-mail or phone call you receive purporting to be from a relative or friend, you should contact that person by phone directly to verify. These scammers are sophisticated and often do extensive research on you before attempting contact so they might seem ligitimate at first glance. If you are a victim of such scams, contact the police and the Federal Trade Commission immediately to report.

Please help us keep the Post open for business and maintain the health and safety of all members and guests. If you are not feeling well, PLEASE STAY HOME!!  We appreciate your patronage and will be happy to see you when you are feeling better.

ATTENTION SMOKERS!!! Please help keep your Post clean!! I am continuing to find cigarette butts all over the grounds, particularly next to the side hall entrance. Don't expect others to clean up after you. This is the last warning before smoking will be prohibited within 100 ft of the building.
