Dear District 7 Post Commanders, Officers and Legion Family,

I would like to take this opportunity to invite all Legion Family Members to the District 7 Fall Meeting, which is being hosted by Swan Valley Post 97. This meeting will be held at the American Legion Hall (157 Stoltenberg Lane, Swan Valley, Idaho 83449), on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

Since the scheduled format of our District 7 Spring Meeting proved successful, we will continue to utilize the same agenda. If you attended our last meeting, I am sure that you appreciated the opportunity to participate in constructive meetings, while salvaging a majority of your Saturday for quality family time. If you were unable to join us for the Spring Meeting, please make every effort to attend on September 23, 2017 to see first-hand that we can continue to sanctify our comradeship, plus further the aims and goals of The American Legion, without sacrificing an entire Saturday to do so.

8:00 am to 9:00 am – Registration Begins and Breakfast Will Be Served
9:00 am to 9:50 am – Joint Opening
10:00 am to completion − American Legion and Auxiliary Breakout Meetings
12:00 pm – Lunch, plus Post Adjutant Workshop

Both breakfast and lunch will be available. For $6 per person, breakfast will include: fruit, cinnamon rolls/donuts, coffee and juice. For $14 per plate, lunch will be provided with the following options: 1- a hoagie sandwich with pasta salad, 2- a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant, with spinach salad, or 3- a sack lunch for those who would like to leave early. As the lunch items are being offered to order, please contact De Lloyd Jacobsen at (707) 474-7343 by Monday, September 18, 2017 to indicate your preferred lunch menu. Auxiliary Unit 97 will conduct a raffle. Tickets may be purchased for $1 each, or 6 tickets for $5. Additionally, a 50/50 raffle will be held to help support our newly installed Department Commander’s and Auxiliary President’s project.

The Joint Opening will commence in the main hall, with the posting of Colors. Following the opening ceremony, Mayor Janice Duncan will “Welcome” Legion Family Members to Swan Valley.

1. To meet our timetabled agenda all Post Commanders, as well as Committee Chairs, are urged to email a copy of their Post/Committee Report to, no later than Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
