2023 Post 205 Charity Golf Tournament
The 2023 Post 205 Charity Golf Tournament is officially underway. We are having a follow up involvement meeting at the Hilton Head Lakes Golf Club. We will be getting an idea of what we will need to do that will make the 2023 tournament one that will give all participants a tournament to remember. Everyone has some sort of skill set that will make a contribution to the Tournament. We definitely make a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. We also make a difference to students of families that receive the scholarships that come from contributions from the Tournament. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and contributions.

Subject: 2023 Fiscal Year and Post Dues
The American Legion fiscal year begins each July 1 and ends June 30. In the past, you have received dues reminders from National Headquarters asking you to send your renewal to National (or Department of SC). Expect to begin receiving these soon.
Please use these reminders to stimulate you to send your dues directly to the Post.
We ask instead that you send your 2023 dues directly to the post. When you send your dues to the Post, we receive our share ($26) immediately and can use the income to fund our many programs. If you send to National, we do not receive our share for 2-3 months!
Please send your dues in this manner:
Make out your check for $60 to American Legion Post 205. Send you check to: American Legion Post 205, PO Box 2376, Bluffton, SC 29910.
Thank you for your membership.

To the American Legion Post 205 Membership,
“Operation Wipeout” is now two years old, and Post 205 will continue to provide Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) and the Training Depot at Parris Island items that they need. The items needed by the young military families continue to be baby diapers. Our goal has been to provide at least $1,000. worth of diapers of varying sizes on an annual basis.
Your charitable contribution will go a long way in helping these young military families. We hope to make delivery of the diapers each spring. The “Operation Wipeout” Committee already has a pretty good idea of the diaper sizes the families require so there should be no problems. If we should require assistance regarding the transportation of the many boxes of diapers, we will let you know.
UPDATE (5/24/2022): We have reached our goal of $1000 for Operation Wipeout. Your donations will make a difference to struggling military families at MCAS Beaufort in need of diapers. We will now order the diapers of various sizes for a delivery date of June 24th. We still need your donations to go toward Operation Wipe Out 2023.
UPDATE (6/24/2022): Post 205 Members Dave Robbins, Bruce Kaiser, Courtney Peeples and Bill Cubley delivered 3,268 diapers to MCAS, Beaufort. Another successful program by American Legion Post 205. Please click on the link to the Operation Wipeout page for information and photos.
