June 21, 2022 UPDATE from Department Secretary Barb Nath:
Here is information, and some items have been attached for you.

  3. Constitution and ByLaws Pre-Convention Meeting will be on site on August 27th from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. This is the time when any amendments will be explained. While no debate is allowed on merit, questions may be asked. We ask that you plan to attend.

  6. Department Pages meeting – This will occur on Sunday, August 28th from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m Our two pages will need to attend this meeting.
  7. Department Executive Committee Meeting – There will be a DEC meeting while at Convention. Traditionally this has been on Sunday morning with reports on the Pre-Convention Committee meetings. We are looking at the possibility of Saturday afternoon/evening since there is so much going on for Sunday.
  8. Public Spirit Luncheon (Member of the Year) – This will be on Tuesday, August 30th. It begins at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for each person. Please let me know if you will be attending and send me a check for the luncheon. I will need to receive your payment by July 20th.
  9. States Dinner – This will be on Wednesday, August 31st. It begins at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $53 for each person. Please let me know if you will be attending and send me a check for the dinner. Again I will need to receive your payment by July 20th.
  10. Airport Transportation – There is no shuttle service from the airport. However you can use UBER, LYFT or Yellow Cab. I did check with the cab company, and it approximately $30 to the hotel. There is an additional charge of $2 for all individuals except for the first one. So for 4 people, there will be an additional $6 charge.
  11. Community Outreach Project - There is a Community Outreach Project. It will be held on Friday, August 26th from 7:00 a.m. to Noon. A great time will be had by all at the National Convention in Wisconsin by working on the Ware Memorial Center for this year’s Community Outreach/Service Project. The attachment outlines information War Memorial Center and information about the four projects and details for each. Here is the link to the Wisconsin War Memorial Center if you want more information. Honor the Dead – Serve the Living - WWW.WARMEMORIALCENTER.ORG
    • 100 Miles for Hope – They arealso asking the volunteers, if they would like, to tie in the 100 Miles For Hope (https://www.legion.org/100miles/getstarted) where they can bank mile(s) if they decide to walk to the project site. It’s .6 miles one way to the War Memorial Center. As you know, all proceeds of funding raised is to help our Veterans and Children Foundation. Sort of like “killing two birds……” If they are participating in both the Community Outreach/Service Project as well as the 100 Miles For Hope, they are asked to wear the t-shirt they obtained upon their registration. We will have two buses available for those that prefer to ride to the War Memorial. The deadline for volunteers to sign up is August 5, 2022. .
