The American Legion Centennial Gala – March 23, 2019

The American Legion Centennial Gala

Happy Holidays, Legion Family members! What better a gift than to buy your loved one a ticket to the Centennial Gala? Give them a chance to get out and have fun. This watershed event is already almost 30% sold out, and hotel rooms at the Marriott are going fast. The Department FaceBook page has it’s own section for the Gala. You can see it on Facebook and learn more about it. There is also a link on the Department website, and a flyer in the elevator and on the bulletin board in our Post home. Of course, you can catch me around Post and I will have tickets until we sell out.

If you are more prone to shop on line, purchase them at the Gala Ticket Sales site.

The excitement is building, so don’t be left out. Department is planning an open house for earlier in the day, before the gala, so you may take a tour of the new history room. You will find interesting items there, and on loan from National at the Gala site. The event will be enjoyable from the social hour on through to the last dance. Get together with your friends and reserve a table, we can accommodate most requests for seating, at least now, while it is still early. This will also be a truly great occasion for the Legion Family 284 to really shine in front of the entire Department and our own President Moore and Commander Lee.

Save the date of March 23, 2019 to attend this event. Learn more at the Department Website by going to: Legion Centennial Gala Announcement.

While you are at it, take a chance and grab a few raffle tickets. We have a $500 VISA gift card up for drawing on December 19th, just what you need for those last minute gifts! Or, buy a ticket for a beautiful American Legion 100th Anniversary .45 pistol, magnificently engraved with may gold plated parts. All proceeds support the Gala, and the remainder goes to American Legion Charities. And of course I close in mentioning, we are always looking for volunteers! Merry Christmas and Happy new Year to all!
