     The Officers and Executive Committee both need your help. Post 315 has really come together over the past 5 years. Our membership is high, our events and fundraising are successful, and the membership seems to be happy. To continue down the path we are on requires good leadership and new ideas. We are holding elections across all 4 Units starting with nominations in March/April and voting in May. I am not sure of the other three Units By-Laws, but the Legion Officers take over 1 Jun. All Legion officer positions are up for grabs, but we have special needs at several of them. 

Finance Officer: The best person for this position will have some type of financial background as an accountant or a business/project manager type but this does not preclude anyone from doing this position. There is nothing that is difficult about it and you have a bookkeeper that works for you to assist. Other jobs that the Finance Officer does are all licenses from the State to include raffles and liquor. We could sure use some help here. 

Adjutant Officer: Our current Adjutant Greg Bone may be leaving as his wife and him are interested in doing some travel. He is not sure yet but if he does, that is another position that is vital. Most of his duties involve membership and meeting minute notes.

Along with these, the others are: 


                                      1st Vice

                                      2nd Vice

                                      Judge Advocate (currently vacant)

                                      Chaplin (currently vacant)

                                      Service Officer

                                      Post Historian (currently vacant)

Please, we need help, and you could be that person that continues to make this Legion great!!!!


    Seems like I always fall behind on updating this page and the others so I think that the first order of business is to see if anyone would like to volunteer to run the Web Site for us. Not hard to do and you can do it from home!  Anybody interested please call me at 517-817-6247.

    Queen of Hearts IV is doing very well. We are well ahead of the pace of QH I and are looking forward to widening the delta between the two as we move forward. Originally this was set up as a 6 Legion drawing, but 1 Legion dropped out approximately 3 weeks before the start and we have been looking for a 6th legion for this whole time. Every time we thought we had another it fell out, but we have now gotten our 6th Legion which is Post 557 out of Dexter. To those who not aware of how we divvy up the funds at the end, it is by percentage of ticket sales. Since Dexter has not sold any tickets yet, they have no claim on any current funds and will only have a claim once they sell. They are currently observing this week and hope to sell starting Sunday the my knowledge, this is the first time that this many Legions have participated in a fund raising event.   



                     Thank you,

                                   Mark Young
