Community Members Program
Sponsors, Supporters, and Boosters
Ernest Peterson Post 228 invites you to join our Boyne City Legion Family as a Community Member. The work we do in the local area with Veterans, Children and Youth, Americanism, and National Security can only be accomplished through the support of our local community. This Community Members program is designed with three goals in mind:
- Make the Community more aware of the Local American Legion Post 228 and Amercian Legion programs and activities.
- Raise funds to support American Legion Programs, help local veterans and students and support Post 228 and its growth.
- Encourage a continuous and growing communication between the Legion Post, its family members and the Community trhough our newsletters and our web site.
To reach these goals, we are asking you as a business or an individual to purchase advertising in our Post newsletter and on our web-site by becoming a Community member of the Post 228 American Legion Family. The backing you give to your local Veterans by becoming either a Sponsor, Supporter, or Booster shows your love of country, family and community. As a Community Member with your ad in our newsletter and your listing on our web site, you let hundreds of Veterans, their families and friends know you value the sacrifice our Veterans have made for our country.
When you become a Community Member, your ad or listing of support will be in every issue of our Post Newsletter (currently 4 times a year) and appear on our web site, both for one calendar year. As our membership grows, both within the Post Family (Legionnaires, Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion) and through Community Memberships, our mailing list grows.
As we grow, through our Legion Family memberships and our Community memberships, we will be able to add more programs for the local area, as in additional scholarship opportunities for Boyne City and Boyne Falls students, more chances for kids to attend Boys or Girls State and Student Trooper programs, emergency relief for local Veterans, and activities within the community. We can also support additional National Legion programs, like Operation Comfort Warrior, the National Emergency Fund and the Legacy Scholarship Fund.
Please look over the information below and consider your preferred level of support.
There are three suggested levels of patronage in our program: Sponsor, Supporter, and Booster.
In order to recognize our Community Members for their contributions, each group will be listed under the appropriate tab on our web site home page, with a heading similar to this:
