Orders are closed. 
Thank you to all of you that ordered shirts. I placed the order last week. It typically takes about 2 weeks once order has been placed. I will let you know once I get an update from the company. 
he Florida Senate will today begin the process of moving a series of bills for Gaming and Gambling in the State of Florida. Currently these bills will only include a very narrow set of proposals as negotiations between the Senate and House continue on Gaming.
 
Unfortunately, the modernization of Instant Bingo is not part of the legislation, but we have been assured that it is part of the discussions.
 
It would be helpful if we had members of the Legion reach out to legislative leaders and express the importance of modernizing the Bingo laws in Florida for our posts and the mission of the Legion.
 
Please encourage our members to call and email their concerns to the leaders below. It is important that they reach out as soon as possible. The more members who reach out and politely share our concerns the better.
