Aloha Legion Family members.  Here we are going into August. Kids are going back to school, and it’s still "hot”.

Hello Horizon City Post 598 Family members. Here we go into August. The rumors you’ve been hearing about your Post being financially strapped are true. We have been relying too heavily on our lounge to keep money flowing and stopped doing what we needed to do to keep members and guests coming in. To rectify that we are going to have Friday night dinners put on by all of the entities on alternating Fridays nights. The Riders will have the first Friday, the Auxiliary will have the second Friday night, the SAL will be the third and the Legion will be the fourth and fifth when needed Fridays. We will also hold Karaoke nights every 4th Saturday once again. Please come in on those nights and support you Post.

We will be holding a Hawaiian Luau with a roasted all you can eat pig on August 18th. Put on you most colorful Hawaiian attire and join in on the fun.

September 11th we will be holding a short ceremony and hopefully finances permitting delivering meals to Horizon PD, Fire Department and EMTs.

We are still working on where and how to build a smoking section so our Post can become a non-smoking facility while satisfying the smokers of our Post.

Together if we fly right, keep our bow into the waves and keep our powder dry we can get to where we need to be.

Just in case I missed something this month stay up to date and see what is going on go to the Post 598 website at http://www.alhorizoncitytx598.org/   

Thank you one and all for making our Post a better place.

For God and Country

The newly elected auxiliary officers are still working to get educated and organized so we can get back to work. Our meetings for those who don’t know are the second Thursday of the month at 7p.m. we would love to increase attendance at our meetings to learn as much as we can. We can use all the support we can get from past members with experience in office, or who have been generally super involved in the past. We welcome everyone back and I thank you in advance for taking the time. I look forward to seeing new and rarely seen faces at our next meeting August 9, 2018. 7 p.m.

Please get with me in support for decorations for the Hawaiian luau on the 18th. Thank You.

Regards,

Amy Mitchell, ALA President

A Little Bit from SAL's…                     American Legion Riders Trail Dust

Starting this month the SAL’s will be cooking a dinner on the third Friday of each month at 6 p.m.  This month it will be on August 17th. Donations and help cooking would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if you can help.

Again we will also be having a meeting this same night. Attendance would be much appreciated, and we need a stronger Sons of the Legion organization. Please help to recruit more SAL’s. The bigger we are the stronger we are, thus helping out in our Legion and making it the best Legion in the Horizon City and Socorro area, (no limits).

Also a reminder: we have a grill to raffle to put more funds into our account. 

I am still collecting cans so if you have any contact me to pick them up or leave at the Post.

If you would like to contact me, please feel free to do so at any time.  My cell # 915-820-0244, e-mail pohara@elp.rr.com

YOU HAVE THE DATES AND TIME OF MEETINGS SO NO EXCUSE NOT TO ATTEND

I would like to thank the Riders who made it to our brother’s Mark “Cyber” Sharples memorial run.

We will start off August with our great cooks making a dinner on the first Friday the 3rd, rolled taco’s (Chico's stile) , also ALR meetings will be conducted to support our Legion and Rider Camaraderie.

We have a short road ahead of us for our USO Run, and we need the up-most support to make this a great run. This year will be our last USO run, and we need to think of supporting our legion first. So next year we are planning too make it a Post 598 survivor run, benefiting our post that needs much reconstructing and maintenance. 

Thank You.

Look at our Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/alrchapter598horizon/ , we have hundreds of pictures that show we really enjoy riding and being with each other.

News and Blurb from Bar Manager

Hello Everyone!

Well the price increase on beverages had very little negativity towards business. However there was some voiced concern. Please understand that if we are going to build the outdoor patio, funds need to be raised towards that and other Post events.  

Remember the weekly pool and poker            tournaments every Thursday and Friday at 7 pm

As Always, Live, Laugh and Love
