THIS NEWSLETTER IS A MONTHLY PUBLICATION ISSUED BY AMERICAN LEGION POST #598
141 Elsworth., Horizon City, TX 79928 (915) 852-4823
It’s been a while since we put out a newsletter. Thank you so very much Judy for stepping up and taking over putting out the newsletter. For the time being we are only going to be putting out the newsletter in electronic form and on our web site at https://www.alhorizoncitytx598.org/. If you want the newsletter sent to your email address, please send a message to me at firstname.lastname@example.org (915) 731-3313 or to Judy Weaver at email@example.com. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year’s. Now here we are into 2019.
On April 12-14, we at Horizon City Post 598 are hosting the Spring Convention. We need to pull together as the “Can Do Post” as we always have, and make the convention a success.
On Memorial Day, May 27, 2019, we are hosting a Flag Raising Ceremony in our Memorial Circle with the Horizon City Lions Club, Horizon City government and other Horizon City organizations. It will be a great way to make our Post more visible in the Horizon City community.
We are still trying to make our Post non-smoking. As you may have noticed our special occasions have been non-smoking due to children being in the building. We have the day of May 27, 2019 as the goal for going non-smoking. We need to get a covered building up to accommodate the smokers so they are not out in the elements. It will happen soon enough.
Our bartenders are now going to be asking to see 2019 membership cards as well as the Sgt. at Arms of entities during meetings. If you do not have a 2019 membership card, please renew as soon as possible.
Thank you one and all for making our Post a better place.
For God and Country

Happy New Year to all our brothers and sisters at American Legion Post 598! December and January have been busy months. Hopefully everyone enjoyed the holidays and got to spend quality time with family and friends.
Although December was hectic, the Riders had the honor of supporting Veterans Transitional Center with a Christmas Eve delivery of clothing and good. We also continued our 1st Friday hosting of our Friday Feast, at the Legion. We have our monthly meetings at the same time.
For our Friday Feast in January, we kicked off the month with an awesome Friday Feast of hot dogs and homemade chili. It was delicious!
Our annual Polar Bear Run was the weekend of January 19 and members went to Alpine and visited American Legion Post 79. While there, we visited with old friends and even made some new ones. The highlight of the trip was being able to participate in a Frontier Casa Fundraising event at their Post.
The Riders look forward to another great year in 2019 supporting out Legion and local Veterans.
Thank you for all your support.

It has been a long time since a newsletter has been composed, and I want to give a great big THANK YOU to Judy Weaver for stepping up and doing it.
Well we have had a lot going on at the Post over the year and hope this New Year continues to be productive. I want to take this time to welcome all new members and members’ that have transferred to our Post family.
One thing I want to mention that affects all our members is the plan to make Post 598 “Indoor Smoke Free”. This has been in the planning phase for quite some time. During the January 2019 General Membership Meeting it was voted to have a completion date of the outside patio Memorial Day 2019. Until then, we have some dates on the Post calendar of functions and events that are Non-Smoking inside the building.
Super Bowl Sunday, February 3, 2019, the Post will be open at 4 pm and we are asking all attendees to bring a covered dish for our potluck.
Luau Party, Saturday, May 4, 2019. More details to follow.
There will be more events and functions added to the Non-Smoking inside events. To get full ideas and understanding of what’s going on at our Post, I encourage everyone to attend the monthly meetings of your entity.
AL Riders meet 1st Friday, Auxiliary meeting the 3rd Thursday, Executive Committee meets every 1st Tuesday and General Membership the 3rd Tuesday at 7 pm.
The Post still hosts every Thursday in-house Pool Tournaments and Friday Texas Hold ‘Em both starting at 7 pm. Also each entity takes turns hosting Dine-In or Take-Out Friday dinner that has been a great success. Serving usually starts at 6 pm.
Post hours of operation are: Sunday-Wednesday 6 pm – 12 am, Thursdays and Fridays 4 pm – 12 am and Saturday 7 pm – 1 am. The bartenders do enforce the 5 butt rule every day at 10 pm.
