A brief membership note-- At the recent Department of New York convention in Niagara Falls, A vote to raise annual dues to $35.00 starting January 1st, 2014, passed. Post 616 urges all members to please pay dues before this date and still pay only $30.00, or consider going Paid -Up-For-Life. Pay one lump sum and not have to worry about paying yearly dues ever again, especially if they do go up. Please click the following link for PUFL info: http://www.legion.org/join/pufl. We need you!
Also, online dues renewal is a fast, convenient way to keep one's membership up to date. However, due to problems at the national level surrounding the mylegion.org website, we are currently unable to track online dues payments. We are working to fix this problem. If you are one who has paid your dues online and have not received your 2013/ 2014 membership card, please call us at 315-858-9924. Thank you!
