Enclosed Trailer Needed

We are seeking the donation of a 4' X 12', 5' X 12', or 6' X 12' enclosed trailer for storing the Post 146 supplies for Oceanside Harbor Days. If you have one or know someone who has one to donate, then please contact Edd at robinson68@cox.net or 760-433-1165.

First Vice Commander's Message

Let's set a new record for money collected by recycling this year. Every dollar we save by recycling goes to the general fund, so everyone pitch in please. We collect donations of Copper, Brass, Aluminum, Steel, plastic bottles, glass bottles, and any plastic container that has a 2, 3, or 5 triangle code. Plastic bottles need to have the lids removed. In addition, please separate the CA CRV from the non-CRV containers as these items are recycled differently. You may bring them to the monthly meeting or contact me at 760-966-1587 or shb46@cox.net for other arrangements.

The 2015 membership dues may be paid online, at the next post meeting, or by mail to American Legion Post 146, 1617 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, CA 92058-2734. If you do not receive your 2015 card within 7 to 10 days after renewing online, then call or e-mail the Adjutant for resolution.
