Legion Headquarters in Indiana will send out renewal notices at various times depending on which organization you belong to. You do NOT however have to wait for that renewal notice. Just stop by the Post and either give your renewal to the office which is open Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – Noon at least, or drop it off with the bartenders and they will see to it that it gets to the right organization. Legionnaires can also renew on line at legion.org/renew.
Renewals remain at $35.00 for the Legion, $25.00 for the Auxiliary and $20.00 for the Sons of the Legion (SAL). In addition to your 2014 card you will be able to share in our popular Early Bird Added Value program, which enables you to purchase one drink in the lounge for $.50 each month between July & December depending on when you renew.
Membership in Post #131 continues to grow, but we also need your participation in the various programs and food events.
