On Saturday, April 18th, I will be conducting (along with Tim Mosman his wife Olivia Headley) another American Legion Extension Institute (ALEI) at Bob Hope Patriotic Hall in Downtown Los Angeles.
The 4-hour workshop covers an in-depth look at the history of the American Legion and the Legion's Four Pillars of Service. Those who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate and cap pin from National Headquarters. ALEI graduates are also eligible to attend the week long National American Legion College in Indianapolis.
The program starts at 10 am and wraps up at around 2 PM. Cost is $10 per person and includes a hot dog, chips and soda lunch. Seating is limited to the first 10 people who sign up.
All Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary members in good standing are welcome to attend this fun and informative event. For more information and to register call me right away at (818) 903-4451.
Congratulations to all the high school students who participated in the Department Oratorical contest held at Post 43 on Sunday March 8th!

7:00pm - 8:30pm Regular meeting including nominations of the Post Officers. (Please see announcement).
8:30pm - 9:00pm ½ Hour break to allow the meeting room to clear out and those members who wish to leave to do so. Also during this time a locked Election Box will be placed on the Bar in the Cabaret Room so that members may write down appropriate questions for the candidates to answer. For example: "Each new Commander typically chooses a theme for their tenure. (I.e. Patriotism was Don Schilling's theme) What is your theme and how will you show it?" Not acceptable questions would be: What religion are you? Or, what's your political affiliation? Or, do you think Wal-Mart should be "Unionized".
At 9:00 pm all members (no SONS, Auxiliary or guests) shall reconvene in the meeting room. The Moderator, National Executive Committeeman and former Dept. Commander for California Hugh Crooks, assisted by Dept. of California Parliamentarian Wayne Yee shall call the forum to order, have the Candidates sit behind the 3 placed Lecterns and the Forum will begin. Each Candidate shall have 3 minutes to respond to each question in sequenced rotation. (I.e. Commander, 1st, 2nd), (1st, 2nd, Commander), etc.
Only Paid-Up members can attend or ask questions. The Forum will last from 9:00pm - 11pm. If you need additional information, call Terry or Jerry in the office. For the Legion, Terance Duddy, Adjutant
