A Message from the Commander


We have some busy times ahead. On Sept 23 we will have our Post Officers’ Installation ceremony. Hopefully many of you will attend. Ceremony starts at 4pm followed by light refreshments. This is a good time for you to meet the Post 17 officers and to socialize with our fellow comrades. The 2nd District officers will be the installing team.

Sept 29, we will be manning a booth at the Mission 22/fall fest, downtown Naugatuck. Come by, say hello and help us get the word out.

Sept 30, We will be hosting the installation of the 2nd District Officers. Our own Tom Honyotski will be installed as 2nd District Commander.

Oct 6, our annual Lions/Post 17 ziti dinner. Tickets are $10.00 adults and $5.00 12 and under.

Oct 13, our first annual kielbasa dinner. Ticket prices are the same as ziti dinner.

Every year around this time, we start to concentrate on renewing membership for the next year. In this case, 2019, which is also the centennial year for the American Legion. Please send in your renewal as soon as possible so we can have a good showing for 2019. If you encounter a hardship, we can work out a payment plan to suit your needs. Some of you have not yet renewed for 2018. Please contact me so you can get caught up. I am in the office every weekday morning from 9 to 10:30. Stop in, say hello, and have a cup of coffee.

Watch for BINGO. We should be starting up soon and if you would like to help, give me a call.

 Our Mission Statement is “Veterans Serving Veterans and their Families”.

 Looking forward to seeing some of you at our meeting (first Wed of every month). Check it out. You may want to get involved.
