Did You Get Your 50/50 Raffle Tickets to Post 170 Yet? Besides your chance of winning, here’s another reason why you should get them in:
Dear Member, or Friend,
Post 170 is a very community minded organization. Besides helping our veterans and their families (we donated over $35,000 last year), we sponsor or help support our local Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, youth sports teams, school children, and local volunteer organizations. In the past year we have given over $14,000 in scholarships; over $11,000 to scouting and “children & youth” programs and over $4000 to other “community” programs in and around Rochelle Park.
In addition, we sponsor school awards for the 8th Grade graduates, provide Americanism awards for the Legion’s Safety Essay and coloring contests, organize the 9/11 service; Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies. And, none of the above includes what our Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and Legion Riders do, as they are separate entities that support the same kind of programs.
It is our sincere hope that you will help us this year, so we can continue to fund all these worthwhile programs, by purchasing the enclosed 50/50 raffle tickets. They cost $10.00 each or 3 for $25, with the first prize being 30%; second prize 10% and third prize 10%. The drawing will be held on March 17th at 8 PM (If you would like to purchase additional tickets, they are available at the Post Lounge (rear entrance) which is open every day from 8 AM to 10 PM. I thank you for your support in the past and hope you will be able to continue to help us in our efforts to benefit the community and invest in our youth.
For God and Country “We continue to serve” …
