Tis the Season
Everywhere you turn, you hear “Tis the Season for Giving” . For our members that “Season” is all year round. As Stan Mauldin put it “we have a hard working bunch of folk”. Thank You for all you do to help our Veterans, their families, and our community. Here are a few things the Post is working on for December that we can use your help with.
Jerry Mahaffey, with some assistance from his “elves” is heading up the Secret Santa program. This program helps to provide gifts to the needy in our community so if you want to support this program please bring a gift or gifts by the Post and place them around the Christmas tree in the main hall or give them to any Post Officer. You will be giving the gift of Christmas to children who otherwise would not receive anything.
The American Legion Riders are working with the Tim Stewart Funeral Home in support of Operation Toy Soldier. This program is to help the families of active duty members who are deployed during the holidays. There is a large barrel just inside the door to the main hall where you can drop off your gifts for these families who are missing their loved ones this holiday season. The American Legion Riders will also be at the Snellville Army-Navy store on December 17th from 11am to 4pm cooking and helping to collect gifts for Operation Toy Soldier so please stop by and see them and bring a gift.
The Post is sponsoring a Children’s Christmas Party on Tuesday December 20th from 4pm to 9pm, so please bring your children or grandchildren and come and enjoy the party!
