NOTICE TO ALL BRANCH MEMBERS
FROM: WALLY TOMASIK, CO-CHAIR WAYS & MEANS COMMITTEE:
RE: COVER CHARGES FOR DANCES & SPECIAL EVENT On the recommendation of the Ways and Means Committee, the Executive Committee has approved the implementation of a $5.00 per person cover charge for dances and special occasions held by Branch 67.A start-up date has yet to be determined, however it is anticipated that the charges will be implemented by the end of September 2019.As many of you can appreciate, the Legion, although financially stable, has determined that this fee would be implemented to offset some of the costs for hosting these events.
1.All Branch Members in good standing will be exempt from the $5.00 fee, providing they produce a valid Membership card at time of admission. Failure to produce a valid Membership card will result in the fee being applied.
2.Members of the Branch 67 Ladies Auxiliary will be exempt from this policy. Again, providing that a valid and current Membership card is provided at time of admission.
The fee is not designed to encumber our Members from attending these functions, provided they are current and in good standing.
We trust that you understand as to why this fee is being implemented.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate in contacting a member of the Committee for further clarification if required.
