Welcome to March, Spring is just around the corner! Hope our Members are safe and sound and have been able to get their COVID Vaccine shots. Let’s hope things start looking up going forward.
We continue to keep working on growing our Membership. We still have a large block of 2020 Members who have not renewed at this point. Please, if you know any of them ask them to come and renew their Membership. We don’t want to lose them, if they need help let us know. Dave, George and Ed have really been working hard to identify them, so we can reach out to them. We can use your help in this Mission.
The 5K Race has finally wrapped up! Tom Bell and I presented our final donation of $40,000 to the Shepherd Center last week. We were well received and they expressed their gratitude for our support over the last few years. Our donation covers their cost to treat one of their Veterans. Again, please make the effort to thank Tom Bell and his committee for all their hard work, especially in this COVID year.
I want to recognize our ALR Unit. They have been very active in supporting the Post and have been involved in various events in the 5th District. All of them have worked hard to grow the Unit with quality Members and represent Post 29 in a very professional manner. They are always looking for new Members. We have every reason to be proud of them and their work!
Please, say thank you to all our Social Quarters staff. They work very hard so we can have a safe environment to enjoy and relax and have some fun. Also, thanks to our Members who support them.
We will be having a General Meeting on March 4th, it will start at 6pm. We will not be having a dinner but will be having coffee and tea available, thanks to our SAL Squadron. Also it looks like they will again be the largest Squadron in the Department again next year. Great job in Membership! It will be announced at this Meeting that there will be an Election held for next year’s Officers. We will publish more details in the very near future.
In closing let me say, things are starting to look a little brighter as we go forward. Hope everyone who wants the COVID Vaccine shots are able to get them. We will continue to follow the State Guidelines and will adjust as they are updated. I wish all our Members and their Families the best. I ask God to Bless all of our Families, Post29 and our Great County. Let’s treat each other with respect and support. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or comments. Please have a safe and happy March, 2021!
