Post 2001 – Holiday Party/Pot-Luck 8 December


Our American Legion Post cordially invites you and your spouse to its 2016 holiday party and Pot-Luck Dinner on 8 December at Mills Recreation Center in Ashburn Village at 1900. (43895 Grottoes Dr., Ashburn, VA 20147).

Post 2001 will celebrate its accomplishments in 2016 and the upcoming holidays. We would like a big Post turnout for this event and invite you and your spouse to share camaraderie and holiday festivities with other Post Legionnaires.

As we have done for many years, this will be our annual Toys for Tots event. We ask you to bring or drop off at two (2) unwrapped gifts (one for boy, one for girl) to donate to the Toys for Tots program. The Toys for Tots program is especially interested in gifts for infants and teenage girls. In past years our Post has collected a remarkable number of toys for distribution to less fortunate children through this program.

As in the past, this will be a “pot luck” dinner event.

Our Post will provide a main dish, punch, and the cups, plastic ware, plates and other supplies.

We ask everyone to bring a dish for 6 to 8 people as follows:
Last name starts with A to G salad (green or otherwise – Jell-O/pasta/your choice)
Last name starts with H to O side dish
Last name starts with P to Z dessert

If you have a special dish you would like to bring and it does not match the above – no worries. Just send me an e-mail to let us know how our “menu” is shaping up.

Dress is “smart” casual – something festive is best.

We would like to get an idea of how many of you can attend by December 5th.
Please RSVP to our Post email (, and tell us how many guests you will be bringing and what dish you can bring (let us know if you want to bring something special not assigned to your group.)

Feel free to e-mail if you have questions or want to help. If you have a last minute change, let us know if possible. All are welcome – even at the last minute!

We look forward to seeing you there! Please bring your spouse/guest to the event!

Congratulations to our Post for a successful 2016. Happy Holidays!

Best regards,
