George Freund of Cando, ND passed away on Sunday, October 16th . His funeral will be at 10:30 am on Friday, October 21st, at Sacred Heart Church in Cando, ND. Gladys has asked us to get the word out to his Legion Family. Please keep the family in your thoughts and prayers.
George served as my 3rd District Commander while I was Department Commander in 1993-1994 in the 75th Anniversary Year of The American Legion. He was a good man and will be missed.
Fundraiser for Membership: this is something that we need to work on this year to get new members and also to fulfill the strategic plan goal of advertising our state. So, please order shirts or the vest; the vest is my new obsession for the fall months.
Direct Link to the actual store that will take your order and send them to you.
Did you know that you can now call national headquarters to pay your dues? The number to call is 317- 569-4500. They will help you especially if you have multiple members that you are paying for. I did this, and it was quick and easy to pay for my additional members.
Anyone can access www.alaforveterans.org. At the top of the site is a “join” tab. Fill out the application and pay. Every department (state) has their dues listed there. New members would become a part of ND Unit 500, and then can be transferred to their desired unit. This is a great help because, if you are talking to someone and you would like them to join, you can have them sign up right at that time. I put the website as an app on my phone and hope to use this feature many times.
