Greetings from the
We hope everyone had a wonderful
The children’s Christmas party was a huge success. Special
thanks to Dave Harris for coming up with Santa Howard Sprool
from Liberty Boro. We are hoping that Howard will consider
becoming a member of our Post. Patty O’Toole was the perfect
Mrs. Claus to complement Santa. Mary Ann Marunich, president of
the Auxiliary, as usual was able to come up with enough presents
for the kids. Thank you to the Auxiliary for wrapping the
presents and coordinating the distribution of the bags of
candy. Much thanks to Debbie, our manager, for arranging the
pizza delivery which left all satisfied with a full belly.

fundraising committee was formed with Gary Hartman, Commander of
the Sons, to chair the Committee. Committee members are Gary

and Mary Ann Marunich. All committee fundraising is to benefit Post 712 only.
This is the last reminder to get your dues in. Door cards of
those members who are not current on their dues will be
de-activated on January 1st and they will also not be eligible

Well, 2019 is on the doorstep. 2018 was a rough year for our
Post. We are actively looking for a new cook and also help at
the bar. In a perfect world we would have enough capable
volunteers to fill the void, but in today’s world we are having

of any qualified people looking for a cook’s position or part
time bartender, please ask them to contact our manager Debbie.
end 2018 with peace and harmony and begin 2019 with the same. I
know that I speak for all the officers and board members of
American Legion Post 712 as we wish all of our veterans,
Auxiliary, Riders, Sons, and social members a happy, safe, and
productive New Year.
