New Membership

New Membership

Fellow members at last years reunion I sent out a challenge to all members to recruit one additional member.  It could be a fellow BRO veteran, or a friend, or neighbor, but just one person each.  While we have had a few of our members step up and accept the challenge, we need member to do the same.  Just one person in the year; that gives you 12 months to invite a new member into our Society.  Membership needs all of us, working together to keep our Society flourishing. I’m personally asking for your support with membership and talking with friends, family members, local VFW, or American Legion about being members of the United States of America’s First Division Society – being one of us, the Fighting First!  Increased membership will allows us to increase our support for Veterans and Soldiers of the First Infantry Division.  Additionally, increased membership allows us to have a large community for our Reunion to reflect and give thanks to all that have served. Please add signing up a new member to the Society to your list of things to do in 2019 – our 100th Anniversary!

Sincerely yours,

Tom Hollis

Executive Director, Society of 1st ID

 

NO CALENDAR FOR 2019

NO CALENDAR FOR 2019

 

Due to increasing costs of printing and mailing a calendar, The Society Board of Directors voted not to publish a calendar for the year 2019.

However, based on many calls asking for one, the Society Staff is looking at alternative methods to produce a calendar for the year 2020. Check back later this year for news about the 2020 calendar.

In an effort to streamline our processes, conserve dollars, and make things easier for you, our members, the Society is emailing membership renewal notices to those members who have an email account in our database.  Some of you may have already received a notice from us in this way. If you do not wish to receive your renewals by email just let us know.  Those who do not have emails will continue to receive renewals by mail.

Throughout the year we will also be emailing letters and other items of interest from our Executive Director.  We will always post those items on our web page as well.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns we welcome your phone calls at 785-579-6761 or Emails to sfidkanas@gmail.com
