The next big event for us is Veterans Day November 11th, we once again will visit the Somerset Schools and attend their programs. If you haven’t attended a program I highly recommend that you go to a school program, they do an excellent job of recognizing Veterans service to our country. They are recognizing and honoring you for your service.
The day begins with coffee and donuts at the club starting at 7:00AM and leaving for the schools no later than 8:15 or you can meet us at the High school.
The other event of the day is a sit-down dinner for all 2020 paid members. The event will start with a Happy Hour beginning at 5:00PM and Dinner at 6:00PM for all Post 111 Veterans and their significant other.
If you plan on attending, please give us a call at 715-247-9899 and let us know the headcount helps our planning. We haven’t failed at putting on great dinner yet and 2019 will be our best yet.
Membership cost remained the same for 2020 at $30.00 which all goes to the National and State Organizations the club covers St Croix County and the 10th District costs for each of you. This is our way of saying thank you for being members of Post 111.

Meet Navy Hospitalman and Somerset High School graduate Drew Pasno and 2 fellow Alpha Company Docs. Drew is an active duty member of Post 111. Drew’s dad is also an active member of the Sons at Post 111.
When Drew was home on leave this year, we asked him how we could best support support him and his fellow servicemen while they were deployed. That was when we learned that (due to various factors) it can be hard for Docs to get their hands on good medical kits in the field.
We asked Drew for a wish list of supplies and submitted that wish list to one of our monthly member meetings. From there it went to an active officer of Post 111 – a retired medic – who confirmed that it was a reasonable list and helped us track down the best sources for military medical supplies.
We received this photo in our thank you letter from Drew and his team. Supplies sent included backpacks, ENT kits, strap cutters, tourniquets, and pulse oximeters.

Members: It’s Your Legion
The Somerset Legion was founded and received its Charter from the National organization on October 22nd, 1919. As a paid member you are part owner in this operation and we would very much like you to be aware of what we are doing and to have your input about what we do on an ongoing basis. It would be especially nice to have as much input as possible to help us get ready for our Centennial Year celebration. The National American Legion Convention will be held this August in Minneapolis. It is the beginning of the Centennial celebration, Minneapolis was the site where the American Legion began with a meeting in 1918 that created the organization and founded the National American Legion being established January 1, 1919. Come and help us make these decisions
