From the Chairman

Les Martin,
Children & Youth Chair

March 2022

The time is running out. Our Children & Youth Golf Tournament and Picnic is fast approaching. (April 9, 2022) This will be the last newsletter before the events. The cut-off for hole sponsorships is March 25, 2022. A Gold Sponsor is $325 and you get 4 golfers and a hole sign. The Silver Sponsor is $100 for a hole sign and golfers only are $70 per golfer ($280 for a foursome). Come on Folks, we can’t have a Golf Tournament without golfers. Register soon! Remember, send your checks, registration, and sponsorship forms to SAL Squadron 325, 3412 HWY 301N – Unit 103, Ellenton, Florida 34222. Checks should be made payable to Squadron 325 and don’t forget to put “C&Y Golf” in the memo.

The Children & Youth Picnic is also on April 9th. We need raffle baskets. We are asking all Posts, Units, Squadrons, and Chapters to provide a basket. Last year we had over 50 baskets thanks to our Auxiliary Department Officers who brought a trailer load that they had collected from Units around the state. If you are going to Titusville for the Picnic and there is a Post near that is not going, please ask them if you can pick up a basket from them and bring it over.

We already have a commitment from the Riders in the Jacksonville area to do a ride-in for the Picnic. I would like to see Riders from other areas of the state also do a ride-in. Folks love to see (and hear) the motorcycles arrive. I will be attending as many District meetings as possible in March to promote our activities and let you know what the Children & Youth is all about.

I know this article is short, but I am putting all my efforts into these upcoming events. We need to make them a success for the kids of Florida.
