The American Legion Department of Indiana is proud to announce that it will be hosting a Statewide membership drive-around in February from the 16th through the 18th called Operation Snowball Express.
The mission of the Snowball Express, is to conduct site visits of multiple posts within each of the 11 Districts. Department leadership plans to meet with District and Post leadership in our Indiana communities to raise awareness of The American Legion Mission; to provide an opportunity for state level leadership to visit with local post level leaders and volunteers; to collect membership cards.
Any changes at the Post level must be communicated to Department Assistant Adjutant John Crosby at 317-630-1264 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org in a timely matter to allow for adjustments to be established and communications made.
District Commanders are strongly encouraged to meet the official party at each post within their District and are welcome to meet at neighboring Districts as well.
Posts are encouraged to invite their local community leaders, law enforcement and firefighters, elected officials, and media.
The Department Communications Office has drafted media advisories tailored to each respective post to be released inviting local media and raising awareness of our visits to each community. Additionally, progress will be recorded and posted to the Department website and social media outlets along the route in real time.
All participants, both of the official party, leadership, and membership are encouraged to share their experience through images and captions on social media, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #WeChangeLives so that the Department communications office can track and share on the Department website www.indianalegion.org, in the Hoosier Legionnaire, and on Department social media.
