This year’s focus for Membership activities will be on off-site recruiting efforts.  Off-site meaning not at your own post. For example: Flea Markets, Parades, Community Events, Honor Flights, etc.  Please share these activities with your Membership team member at your Fall District Conferences so they can reported to National. Photos are always welcome.
