"Where The Warm Desert Breeze Meets The Cool Mountain Air"

A.L.R. September 2011

Monthly meetings are on the FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH at 6 P.M. – Please try to make these meetings so you can have input on where we go. what we do & who we support. Our next meeting is September 3rd at 6 PM. Dinner (Meatloaf Sandwiches) will be served from 5-6 PM.

At our September meeting we will be voting on a proposed change to the by=laws to allow “Support members” into our Chapter – as long as they are Legion Family Members.

Our Finance Officer, Julie Samsoe, had to resign for personal reasons so we welcome our new Finance Officer, Johnny Phillips. Thanks for stepping up, Johnny. And, if you are interested in serving as our Historian or Sergeant-at-arms please let us know, we’d like to fill these positions.

Congrats to the winner of the pop-up awning, Carol Enriques of Phoenix. This month we are raffling off a $25 Visa card for only $1.00 per square, so see me if you are interested.
