American Legion Post 598 Legionnaires, Auxiliary members, Sons of The American Legion, and Legion Riders, family and friends, the post is experiencing financial difficulties and is in dire need of your support. At the present time the revenue generated at the bar is not sufficient to meet all of the expenses generated by the post. We had a special meeting on August 9, 2016 to discuss this issue, along with other items, and on how to make the post great again. A lot of great ideas were brought to the table and a few that will not sit well with some members. But the intent is to ensure the post gets past these difficult times and become, once again, prosperous. Until then, bills and other expenses have to be paid.
As of August 9, 2016 the available balance on the bar account is $467.88. Pending bills: Electricity $888.75 (past due), El Paso Disposal $124.39, Horizon Regional MUD $195.89, DirecTV $126.47. These are the most costly of utility bills. The monthly Mixed Beverage tax will be due in a week, and that averages about $600.
I am asking, if you can, to make a monetary donation to cover some of these expenses. This is only a temporarily fix until such time the bar becomes profitable again. Please include your name, or anonymous, along with the amount so that it can be publicly published in a format visible for all to monitor.
I know that money issues can be quite controversial but I hope that everyone will understand.
