Happy New Year! I do hope that all of you had a Merry Christmas. With the new year comes more things, issues and challenges…
Marcello (First Vice) and Scott (Former Commander) recently received recognition from the Department of Maryland for their recruitment efforts. Great job to both! Furthermore, if any of you do so or assist in the process, sign your name to the “Recruiter” line. We would like to recognize your efforts, too.
This year is the installation of new officers, various awards and Legionnaire of the Year. Think about potential qualified nominees—including yourself! We need your input by 15 April 2019 to continue the integrity and success of our Post.
I am honored to announce that “Col. Pat” Patrick Mcaleer has accepted the posi-tion of Second Vice Commander. (Thankyou!) He will be responsible for hall rentals and will become a member of the Executive Committee. Mr. Mcaleer comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and ideas from his career as retired military officer. He has been off and running and he will be an asset to the Legion. I have asked Mr. Ed Kaneely to fill the vacated position on the Executive Committee from Pat. Ed has been a long time member of the Post with a background in the Marines and Government Service. Welcome aboard!
The problem arises when I need to name names but often omit some of you. This can be awkward.
