Vermont Teddy Bear Company – the nation’s top producer of handcrafted teddy bears – is showing its patriotic colors with the introduction of limited-edition bears to support The American Legion.
The teddy bears feature the Legion emblem on a white T-shirt and uniform cap; the cap can be personalized with a city, state, district, department, post or name of choice. The teddy bears make a thoughtful gift for a veteran or a meaningful keepsake for any Legion member or supporter.

Kansas Accomplishments 2013-2014

 

Adjutants Bulletin's

As per the Detachment of Kansas policy, all unused blank and preprinted membership cards from the 2014-2015 membership year must be returned to Department Headquarters before your Squadron will receive your new 2015-2016 membership cards. Each one of these unused cards have a value of $10 so if they are not returned your Squadron is liable for them and will not be sent their new cards until they are returned or paid for.

When returning your 2014-2015 cards to Department you might want to seriously consider sending them by registered and or priority mail requiring a signature on their delivery. That way you have a receipt that you have returned them and who signed to receive them in Topeka.

To some of you that are not aware or unsure the S.A.L. membership year runs from July 1 to June 30 each year. All Squadron officers should be renewing a.s.a.p.  The 2015-2016 membership goals will be set towards the end of August or early September. 

Send all unused 2014-2015 membership cards to:   Kansas American Legion Department Headquarters, 

C/O Michelle,  1314 S.W. Topeka Blvd.   Topeka, Ks. 66612

Any Kansas S.A.L. Membership questions contact:
