COMMANDER'S   MESSAGE

Mike Percival

COMMANDER

February has been a memorable month to say the least. It brought some excitement to our post. We welcomed the American Legion National Commander, Denise Rohan, to our February 4th meeting. Not only is she the first female National Commander, but could have visited over 13,000 posts, but chose ours. She was quite impressed with our meeting and she talked about family and the importance of total commitment to the Legion. It is good to know that we are doing the right thing for the Legion and the vets. I hope more of you can attend some of our meetings to see what we are about.


This is also the time of year when we are gearing up for the end of school year award ceremonies. We will be attending 20 ceremonies, 7 High Schools and 13 Middle Schools. We need many veterans to sign up to “hang a medal” on a well-deserved student. May 17th is the most crucial night. There is one high school and 5 Middle School ceremonies on that night. The other schools are no more than one or two on any given date. There will be a sign-up sheet at the March 18th meeting. So check your calendars and help us out at the award ceremonies.


The last item of importance to discuss is the upcoming election of officers at our April Meeting. There are 7 elected officers and 6 appointed officers. If any member in good standing seeks a position within the post, notify the Adjutant at the upcoming March meeting. Regardless if any officer wishes to stay on, anyone can seek the position. -                                   


Mike Percival, Commander

ADJUTANT’S NOTES


The annual election and installation of Post 76 officers will be held at the General meeting on Sunday, 15 April 2018. The Executive Board will nominate a person for each elected office (Commander, 1st Vice Commander, 2nd Vice Commander, Sergeant-at-Arms, and one Director), and this slate will be brought before the Post 76 membership for a vote by the membership. Nominations are also accepted from the floor. There are 7 elected officers, but Directors serve a three-year term, so only one is up for election each year.


The Post 76 General Meeting is your connection to American Legion happenings around the Las Vegas Valley. Here you can rub elbows with veterans from every US Military Service and enjoy their camaraderie, meet your Veterans Service Officers, get an update on Veterans benefits and support from our monthly Guest Speaker Program, learn what activities Post 76 is getting involved with, and have a tasty snack and drink afterwards. It’s also where you can make suggestions to help us to provide you the kind of meeting and activities that will make you feel good about paying your annual dues. Come to the meetings every 3rd Sunday of the month at the Durango Hills YMCA, at 1:30 PM, and you’ll be glad you did.


Your Post 76 Adjutant is the person to whom you can turn for answers on any questions you may have regarding your membership status, or any other issues, concerns, or suggestions that you have with Post 76 operations. He is the person who can get you straight answers and help make your membership in Post 76 a more rewarding experience.
