District #7 Post Commanders, Officers and Legion Family,
Our annual District 7 Fall Meeting of the American Legion Department of Idaho is scheduled for Saturday, September 22, 2018 in Idaho Falls, ID.
Meeting logistics are listed on the last pages.
A few items of business:
1. Bring any resolutions or business with you for our business meeting.
2. Your post consolidated report is one of the most important documents you submit on an annual basis. I encourage each Post Commander to keep an up to date record somewhere so you do not have to try to regurgitate the information when the report is due. This document lets people outside the District and Department know what you are doing and this information is used by the National Commander when meeting with Congress. Please pay a lot of attention to this very important form.
3. For the Posts that absolutely cannot make the District meeting we will send out minutes of the meeting for your information. It would be great if you can send at least one representative to the meeting. Also, send me or the District Adjutant your Post report so we can read into the minutes if you cannot make the meeting.
Ken Lembrich, Commander
The District 7 meeting will be held in Idaho Falls at Post 56. Address for the Post is: 485 Constitution Way, Idaho Falls, ID 83402.
Motel rooms are available in Idaho Falls at a Legion rate if you want to go part way and stay in Idaho Falls. I have made arrangement with Candlewood Suites for a good price for Legion members who want to stay in Idaho Falls. Candlewood is very nice about staying an extra day, coming early, helping guests, so don’t hesitate to ask and they are pet friendly. They really like Veterans and their families. Candlewoods phone number is 208-525-9800 and ask for “American Legion Group Rate”.
Driving directions to Candlewood Suites – Exit I-15 at the 118 exit (Broadway) and proceed east. After you cross the river get in the right lane and turn right at the first stop light. You will be on Capital Avenue. Proceed on Capital until you come to the first stoplight. The stop light is on Pancheri Drive. When you get to the stoplight you will see Candlewood Suites on the other side of Pancheri Drive on the left. Address is 665 Pancheri Drive.
