Commander’s Column – May

Well here we are in May, no question the last few months have been something none of us have ever experienced for sure! I hope and pray all our Family Members are holding up safe and sound.

The Post remains closed until further notice. We are continuing to track to the situation to see when it would make sense for us to reopen. Please be assured that this decision will not be made until we are confident it is in the best interest of all our Members.

We have been fortunate to this point to have only lost a few of our Members, none of which have been Virus related to my knowledge. Our Chaplin Roy Lantz has done an outstanding job in reaching out to their families and offering our support.

Jr. Vice Russ Wood and Teresa have done an outstanding job in making sure our staff have been well taken care and are receiving the benefits they are entitled to. Also, Russ has taken all the steps required to see that the Post is receiving all the assistance we are able to receive.

As I reported early this month, there will be no Elections this year. Our current Board will stay in place and function as normal.  This action was directed from the National Headquarters via a Resolution to the Department and to all Districts and Posts.  Therefore, we will hold in place as directed.

     In closing, I wish you all the best and please be safe! This will pass; however, it will require some adjustments in how we live our live’s going forward. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. May God Bless the Post 29 Family and this Great Nation! I am proud to be your Commander!

SAL Column – May

To the Sons of the American Legion Members- I trust this newsletter finds each of you and your families safe and well.  Please let us know if you or if you know other members of the legion who are sick or have been impacted by the corona virus. 

The Sons like all of the American Legion Family are looking forward to the day we can re-open our legion safely for all of our members.  Needless to say we all living in a “new world” of safety and regulatory concerns.  The legion is monitoring the situation concerning re-opening, and will re-open when it feels we can open to post to all activities and it will be safe for all parties. 

We will be submitting our officers next to Dept. in the coming days. Currently I still have open the office of Jr. Vice and Historian vacant for the coming year.  If you have an interest in serving as an office please let me know soon. 

The Sons of the American Legion at Post 29 is also trying to close out membership for 2020.  We are about 20 members short of our goal, so if you have not renewed, please do so and if you have potential new members let us know!  We truly want to be the largest post in the state again this year. 

While we watch our grass grow and clean out our garages during this down time please continue to be safe and well and let us know how you are doing.  Please feel to free to contact me if the Sons of the American Legion Post 29 can be of service to you.
