Post 1 Commander's Notes

Added on 04.28.2021

Spring is here! If not in temperature it is on the calendar. At Post 1 we are leaving the past, difficult year behind us and moving forward to a brandnew
year with lots of enthusiasm.

I will be bringing in the new year by giving up one of my jobs. It won’t be the Legion, although I better wait for the election results. However, I am hoping to limit my CPAwork to a few hours a couple of weeks a year.
This move will allow me to spend a lot more time physically at the Post.

Post 1 has numerous activities coming up in May and June. In May, the Monaco South Optimists are returning for their Friday morning meetings and we are glad to see them again. We are also welcoming back the Rocky Mountain Navy for their monthly meeting. The Boy Scouts should also be returning soon. If you have an old or unwanted bicycle you are not using, please consider donating to the bicycle collection event on May 15, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Post parking lot. On May 29, Post 1 will again be putting flags on the Veterans’ graves at Crown Hill Cemetery. This year will be special as we have new Medal of Honor Recipient flags thanks to Marsha Harrison. Thank you, Marsha! Next, we will be replacing
the flag at Veterans Park on June 14. This is a ceremony filled with pride and patriotism. Please attend if you are able. Check the calendar page on the back of this issue for all events planned at this time.

Notes from Post 1 Adjutant

Added on 04.28.2021

Happy spring greetings to all! It appears we have survived the worst of
the COVID pandemic, I certainly hope so. Now that we have made it through that we are very near starting a new Legion year and that means elections. Legion elections will be held on Tuesday, 11 May, 2021, from noon until 19:00 (7 p.m.) at the Post (Auxiliary votes during their meeting). The ballots will provide space for write-in candidates. But remember those who are elected must be members in good standing, which means they must be a paid-up member and qualified for the Family Group for which they are elected. Finally, if you wish to have your name on the ballot you still have time to sign-up on the candidate sheet on the Post
bulletin board.
