Legion scholarship drive | Letter

Each year, at this time, we reach out to the businesses and individuals to request a contribution of $25 for the continued funding of our scholarships. We will post an 8” x 10” poster acknowledging each individual contributor and an 8” x 10” ad for each business contributor that supports our graduates. These acknowledgments remain posted for one year and are seen by all who visit our post home throughout the year. We have four scholarships ($1,00 each) that are supported by this fund.: Sally Hart Memorial, Mid Flaherty Memorial, Lar Vern Key Memorial and American Legion Auxiliary. Thanks to your generosity we have been able to award one to three more scholarships in addition to those mentioned above. The community has been very supportive of our scholarship fundraising in the past and it is our hope that continues in 2017.

We know these are uncertain economic times for most so your continued support is greatly appreciated. Please make your checks payable to the American Legion Auxiliary and send to the attention of Judi Resch/Eloise Monson, American Legion Post #93, 793 Crescent Beach Dr., Eastsound WA 98245. You may also bring your donations to the post home; it is open at 4 p.m. daily. We will be happy to show you through our post home, where the acknowledgments are displayed. We would like to have all posters and acknowledgments printed and on display before Memorial Day weekend.

If you are a new business contributor or have a new business card please enclose the card with your donation. These will be enlarged to the 8” x 10” ad. If you have any questions, contact Judi Resch at 376-4069 or Eloise Monson at 376-4510. Thank you for your support of our scholarship program.
