My fellow Legionnaires.  To those of you who responded to my last message, Thank You.  To all the others who could have, but did not, I appeal to you  once more.


We need you. We need those who have not paid their dues, to do so as soon as possible.


We have suspended bingo until October 15, 2003.  We will
resume our Wednesday Bingo with some changes to the games, and the prize money. However we need help from our members on Wednesdays to run the games. 


We will also need your help at our next Beef & Beer affair in the morning to set up, and at night to run this event on October 18th.  I make this appeal on behalf of all those members who always show up when needed. Unfortunately, they can't always be there, we need new faces to fill in. 


October 5th is our annual Memorial Mass at Mary Queen of Heaven RC Church --12 O'clock mass. Let's have a good turn out!



On Saturday, September 27th, there was an important meeting at the County Headquarters. The members of the six (6) Sons of the American Legion Squadrons in Kings County were invited to attend. 


In attendance were, The County Commander Robert Alessi, past County Commanders Robert Coltrinari, Charlie O'Laughlin  and myself, Andy Affrunti --Ed Cush, two S.A.L. members from the Michael A Rawley Squadron, two from Bay Ridge, and two from McFadden Bros. We expected at least 20 men. Where were they??


It was embarrassing as we had Albert Deicher, Jr. who is the Vice commander of the 2nd and 10th Districts of the Detachment of NY, Sons of the American Legion, as our guest. 


A Constitution for the Sons was put together in a draft form.
A vote was taken among the eight (8) men present to appoint a Chairman and a Secretary.


Peter DeAngelis, Jr. became the Chairman from Michael A. Rawley, Jr and Michael Dwyer, became the Secretary.  A copy of the draft will be distributed to the squadrons for their approval. 


This is the birth of the Sons of the American Legion for Kings County. In time, we hope to name a Commander, Vice
Commanders and an Adjutant who will also serve as the Finance Officer. There will be a per capita established to maintain this new committee.  They will meet monthly at the County Headquarters.


I hope that we can stir up enough interest in the Floyd Bennett Squadron to have a Commander, at least one Vice Commander and an Adjutant. We are one of the biggest as far as membership is concerned in the county, and unfortunately have no programs, we are just a "paper squadron".  Where is our
