Greetings from the Commander

Important Message from the Commander

May brings us to the point of nominating your officers for the upcoming year. Any Legionnaire who wishes to be nominated for a Post 712 officerís position needs to make their wishes known at the Post 712 Meeting, Monday June 3rd, 2019. Qualified individuals must be a veteran and a member in good standing in the American Legion. Our Adjutant Dave Masslon will chair the nominating committee.

Positions under consideration are:

Commander, 1st Vice Commander, 2nd Vice Commander, and Finance Officer.

Post Elections will be held at the Post 712 Meeting Monday July 1st 2019, at 7:00pm.

New Adjutant

             I am pleased to inform the membership that veteran Dave Masslon has volunteered to become our newest adjutant. Dave is highly qualified and we are extremely fortunate that he has offered to take on this important role.

             We are still in need of a replacement for our friend Bill Weikel, our Sergeant-at-Arms. Interested parties should leave contact information with the bar manager or one of the post officers.

Just a Reminder

             Please, when you are out and about, whether driving or on foot, be aware of your surroundings. There are far too many incidents of people injured or killed this spring because of speeding or drivers making impulsive decisions without realizing the implications of those poor decisions. Also put those phones away! You can avoid injury from tripping, walking in front of a car, and if driving, avoid a serious accident just by setting that cell phone down.

Donít forget about Motherís Day on the 12th of May and Armed Forces Day on the 18th, which honors active duty members.

Memorial Day Monday May 27, 2019

If there is anyone wishing to participate for the upcoming Memorial Day observance, please meet at the post no later than 9:00 AM. For those that wish to go directly to Jefferson Memorial Cemetery are to assemble behind the administration building no later than 10:30 AM. After our ceremony at Jefferson, we will meet at the Pleasant Hills Cloverleaf to raise our colors. We will then proceed to Jefferson High School. After those ceremonies have concluded, we will then return to Post 712 to honor our flag. A lunch will be provided for those in attendance.

Any member who would be willing to volunteer at the Post on Memorial Day, please contact our manager Debbie Michalski. We will accept help Social Members, Auxiliary, Sons, Riders, Veteran Post Members and their families.

Respectfully submitted,

Lee Phillips
