September Newsletter

September and Sportsman’s Spectacular are synonymous– what an event! The Spectacular has to be one of the premier events in the region. There’s something for everyone. With the variety of prizes, guns. And MORE guns. Now, if money is your thing, the Legion of Honor has the ticket! The LOH 50/50 is an opportunity for you to go home with a big chunk of change. Legion of Honor 50/50 tickets can be purchased from any LOH member, or at our table during the event. See you there!

How about the Jeep Give-a-Way? If you hold the winning ticket, say hello to your new 2017 Freedom Edition Jeep or $20,000 in cash. Now that’s a win/win situation. Tickets can be purchased at the Zem Zem Office or at the Spectacular.

If you haven’t seen the movie “Dunkirk,” it’s worth seeing. The British Navy and a group of British civilians in private boats came together to rescue thousands of British soldiers stranded on the beach of Dunkirk in the dark days of WWII. This is a MUST SEE movie for any WWII buff. It’s another example of living military history and ordinary people rising to the occasion and doing extraordinary acts of bravery.

Here are some special upcoming Veterans events worth sharing:

The Erie Vet’s Center #222 cordially invites all Veterans and guests to the Annual Summer Picnic on September 8th 1100 to 1400 hrs at Veteran’s Park (Love & Zimmerly Rd, Erie PA) Please note, bringing a dish to pass would be appreciated, but not required.

The University of Buffalo School of Dental Medicine is offering a week, Sept 5th-11th (9am to 3pm) of FREE Dental Care (exams, cleanings, fillings and extractions) limited to 100 participants. All Veterans are eligible. Call Sarah Bemis at 716-397-2640 for more info and appointments.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the LOH Picnic. Great company, food, and weather. Special thanks to 2nd Lt Commander Dale Konen, Chair of the picnic for a very successful outing.

Next meeting: September 19th at 19:30 hrs. Casual Dress

Steve Smith, Commander

Parade season is winding down, come and join the fun and march or ride on the trailer with all the military corps flags. We’ve had a good showing in the parades and have been standing tall. If you have a uniform and are interested in march- ing again or are interested in marching and need a uniform you can contact Captain Russ McKinsey PP/PC. His contact information can be found in the calendar book or by contacting the temple at (814) 833-3391.

The Unit voted on a change of how our monthly 50/50 drawings are going to be paid out. Every member was issued a number between 1/110, as new members join they will be issued a number. A container has all LOH members number on a wooden die and one number will be drawn each month and if you are present and pay $1.00 for the 50/50 and your number is drawn you will receive 50% of the funds collected to date with 25% going in to the equipment fund and 25% going towards the next months drawing. The July meeting on the 18th was the first month with $120.00 with #90 Steve Smith Cmdr. being pulled but not winning so in August the drawing was worth $142.00 continuing every month thereafter with the money collected added to the funds in the drawing.

The Sportsman Raf e is scheduled for September 16th in the banquet hall at ZEM ZEM, as this is our only fund raiser for the year please come and enjoy the day and help make this 50/50 another success.

See everyone at the meetings every third Tuesday.

Thank You,
John Donner
First Lieutenant Commander
