Messages from District Secretary/Treasurer

Assessments are DUE!!!  Notices mare being sent out to the Units that have not paid their 2021-2022 assessments.  These are the monies that the district operates on.  The chart has been in every newsletter since October.  The checks need to be made out to: 6th District ALA and sent to Karen Foss at 325 Karst Street, Pierz, MN 56364.

Please as soon as you have your elections in your Units, mail in the list of addresses to Department Office and a copy to President Bev Grose so we can pass them on to the incoming District officers.  If we do not have a complete list of officers, it goes to the past officer and then sometimes the info does not get to where it belongs.

District Convention is soon approaching. It will be hosted by the Ironton Post, Unit and Squadron on June 3 & 4.  Executive Committee on Friday, June 3 and the Convention on Saturday, June 4.  Please plan on attending it is informational and you get to see Legion Family members that we don’t see everyday.

President Bev’s testimonial will be Sunday, May 1st at the St. Augusta Legion.  Reservations can be sent to Pat Gerchy, 765 Savanna Ave Apt 308, St. Cloud, MN 56303, by April 19.  Cost is $18 per person which includes tax & gratuity. Social hour is 5-6. Dinner starting at 6 – which will be Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, vegetable, coleslaw, and dinner roll.  Program to follow dinner.

A list of chairmen will be emailed to all Unit Presidents, or a copy mailed if you don’t do email, so that each Unit can send their annual reports to the chairman so they can submit for our book of annual reports for the district and forward the information on for the Department Chairman.  Let us “toot our horns” for the good things that we do for our Veterans, their families and our children and communities.  I don’t understand why we all want to keep our information to ourselves.  Share what works for you and if another Unit does something also like you, who cares.  Maybe that is because it was a great IDEA!!

If your Unit is planning on purchasing extra subscriptions next year for some of your unit members, please also get those names and addresses in as soon as possible.
