Legionnaires,

Legionnaires,I hope this message finds you all well. Hopefully, everyone has had a fun filledsummer! I would like to thank all the delegates who attended this years convention. Theconvention was a great experience for all who attended, I hope that next years delegation,will be as impressed. Welcome aboard to all of our new members, I look forward to seeing you around the post.

The post is moving forward on some modifications. We are in the final stages ofsecuring a new sign for the post. The sign has been an ongoing issue for a long time.The new sign will replace the original sign ( in Puggy's Garden ) and eliminate the oldmagnetic board. The new sign will be digital and controlled inside to display announcements.In other words, you will know what's for Friday dinner, bands, holiday announcements,etc. We will be having a sign fund raising event, ideas and volunteers are welcome.Thank you to everyone involved in this endeavor. Each of your concerns werecarefully reviewed and considered.

We are also doing some other post improvements, like a motion is in place tohave the flag poles moved to the road with the new sign. The floor behind the bar hasbeen replaced. Some other maintenance issues will be addressed. A fall cleanup aroundthe post is going to occur in October, TBD we will be watching the weather. I encourageeveryone to keep an eye on the board, and come lend a hand.

As many of you know, Former Commander Rebecca Stoll, has been down, butnot out! she has been an active First Vice since her accident, not allowing her injuries tokeep her from maintaining memberships, members needs, and responsibilities related tothe post. She's recovering well, and you should see her around the post soon!

We have had some nice affairs in the hall this year, and we have many moreahead. If you or a friend needs the hall, please contact the 2nd vice Marcelo Teixeira.Our dedicated Chaplin, Eric Malstorm will be relocating at the end of September, thusleaving us without a spiritual leader... anybody interested in this position, should contacta post officer. The same applies to the open Historian position. Please extend your thanksto the Chaplin when you see him.

Respectfully,

Mike
