I look forward to leading us into the 2018 year with great support for all of our members. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at any time!

Hey guys! We had a great year. Thanks to all of you for your support. Let’s continue to keep it going! We are already at 90% renewal for 2017. That is awesome!

Also, check the Post 44 Calendar of Events. We have Parada del Sol coming up and ask that some of you come volunteer for 2-3 hours. Also, keep in mind the Initiation Dinner March 29 and the big SAL Camp-out at the end of April in Kingman, AZ.  We can always use extra volunteers for Bar Bingo on the 2nd Thursday of each month. It’s fun and it’s how we make money for our charities.

Thanks again. If you need anything or have questions, call me at 480-586-6284. My phone is always open.

Sincerely, Ed.

Hello everyone. Wow! It’s hard to believe this year is almost over. If you don’t have your 2017 card, renew now!  The bartenders will begin checking cards January 1st.

Welcome back to our winter visitors. Bar Bingo is in full swing. Come check it out Thursday’s at 6:30 pm. It’s a lot of fun!

The next Son’s meeting is January 17, 2017 at 7:00 pm. Hope to see you there.

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    It is with great sadness that I report we lost our Squadron 44 Chaplain, Dale Wallace, in August. He succumbed to complications from diabetes and kidney failure. Dale’s passion for the American Legion, his smile and laughter will be greatly missed.

The 2017 membership cards are in.  Renew now and be invited to an “Early Bird” dinner near year end. Submit your $30 renewal and we’ll get your card to you as soon as possible. Consider signing up your son’s, grandson’s or other eligible male family members to help us carry on the legacy of support to our veterans.
While you’re out enjoying the cooler weather, stop by the Post for dinner, karaoke, Bingo and friends. See you there!

SAL Commander – Ed Wallace
The Son’s of Squadron 44 thank you for your support and renewals. We have surpassed our goal of 100% membership again this year and couldn’t have done it without you!
 Remember, if you need to get out and are looking for someplace ‘cool’, Post 44 has a full calendar of activities during the week and special events all summer. Support the Post as we support our veterans, enlisted and their families.
 God bless and hope you enjoy a great summer!
-Ed Wallace
