I hope you are keeping safe and well. I would like to say thank you to all
the Legion and Auxiliary members who
donated food to the VA Clinic. Gift cards
were given to families for Christmas, and grocery cards were placed on the Giving Tree at the VA Clinic. Thank you, all.
Now, to the future. Members of Lincoln Unit 3, have you paid your 2023 dues? As for all the things we do for our community and our veterans, your dues help the unit make them happen.
Scholarship time is drawing near. The due date for the Unit Scholarship is April 1. Please check the American Legion Post 3 website (www.legionpost3.org) for the applications. Please send them to Shirley Horstman. For any questions, please call her at 402-467-1575.
On March 18, the District 12 meeting will be held in Hickman at their Community Building in downtown Hickman. Registration starts at 8:00 A.M., and the joint meeting begins at 9:00 A.M.
We have already picked several girls from the Lincoln schools to attend the 2023 session of American Legion Auxiliary Cornhusker Girls State. Happily, Girls State will be held in person this year at the University of Nebraska starting June 4. The cost for Girls State is $400 per girl.
In March, we will celebrate the American Legion’s Birthday. Elections for new officers will be held during the May meeting. Lincoln Unit 3 will also participate in Memorial Day services at Wyuka Cemetery.
I would like to invite you to our Unit 3 meetings so you can have a say in what we do at our meetings and understand the programs of the Auxiliary. We could always need your help and ideas.
President, Lincoln Unit 3
