Dear American Legion Audie L. Murphy Post No. 336 Member:

Welcome to all new and returning members from all the Post Officers and Members.  

Donations are being accepted for American Legion Programs.  Please contact the Commander to contribute. We are a 501c (Tax-Exempt) veterans organization and receipts will be given for contributions. We have given donations to The "Blue Santa" organization in Leon Valley, the "Camp Corral" organization, Cub Scout Pack 485, the Fisher Houses at the Audie L. Murphy VA Hospital and at the Wilford Hall location, Lackland AFB, and the Military Veterans Day Parade Association to name just a few.

This past Saturday, April 23, 2021, we again headed up our semi-annual clean up of the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Parkway, walking in both directions, picking up and bagging debris.  We were joined by several members of the Leon Valley City Council, as well as families of post members.  We started the morning with fresh breakfast tacos, an assortment of doughnuts, and cold drinks.  Everyone had a great time and we even signed up a new member.

Everyone is encouraged to sign up at least one new member for the Post.  Currently, we are offering a reduced price for the remainder of 2021 of just $31.00 when the new member pays the full price of $42.00 for 2022.  We have membership applications. Save $100.00 by becoming a Paid-Up-For-Life member!  Welcome to all our new members and thank you, everyone, for making our membership drive a success! Please contact Bill England at 210-643-3337 to see what you can do to support this effort. 

Please keep sharing our programs and “Just Ask” someone to join.  We are currently recruiting for the 2021 year; we have a goal of 891and we currently have 695 paid members or 78.00% of goal as of 0424/2021.  If you have not paid your $42.00 dues for this year, please go online to the American Legion site to renew or contact the Post Adjutant, Norm, 210 833-7703.

We now are on Facebook; search for "Audie L. Murphy American Legion Post 336" in FB. The site is now "OPEN" to the public to view.

Our Auxiliary is recruiting new members, as well. Their Membership/Renewal Person is Margaret Ozuna, and she can be contacted at alaunit336@texaspost336.org. Cost of membership for a year is $34.00.

The Post was gifted a 1942 Willys Jeep in 2019.  We have been in the restoration process and are working to completely fund this project.  To that end, we will have a "Sllent Auction" at our July 2021 General Membership meeting for several gift baskets, hopefully filled with Lotto scratch off tickets and gift cards generously donated by our membership.  We are also asking that our membership make a donation directly to our Jeep Restoration Chairperson, Lloyd Adams, (210) 381-3427, email lloydadams@satx.rr.com,  or to our Finance Officer, Richard Wood, (210) 827-7985, email rw00d54@swbell.net.  

 

     Reel Recovery is back in operation.  They have a FREE fishing trip Sep 17 - 19, for men who have or have recovered from cancer.  The only cost is buying a Texas fishing license and traveling to the event.  The       web site is https://reelrecovery.org/programs/retreat-schedule/ and select Waring, TX.
