Commander's Corner

       A Message from Post Commander, Bill Wilkinson

"American Legion Post 10, this is Bill, how may I help you?"


  Greetings everyone!

It looks like May is going to be a busy month.  Starting on Wednesday, the 1st - there is a planning meeting for placing flags on veterans graves.  This meeting will start at 7 pm. The Auxiliary is having their Poppy Booth again this year on Friday and Saturday, 17th and 18th at Albany Bi-Mart and again on Tuesday, the 21st.  This is organized by the Auxiliary, but anyone from the Post 10 Family, Post, SAL, ALR can sign up to help.  The sign up sheets are out for you to pick your date and time slot.

There have been PALS dinners on the third Saturday since February and May is no exception.  Saturday, the 18th, 4-6 pm, with meatloaf as the main entrée and reservations due by Monday the 13th.

Ever since Covid19 reared its nasty head, participation at the Post has dropped significantly.  It is really good that you pay your dues, thank you, but the volunteers have dwindled.  There are only six that work the club right now and I know they are getting really tired.

The Post is in need of a Finance Officer, but when the only folks that attend the monthly meeting already have volunteer jobs, it is really hard to get someone to help out. 

PARTICIPATION - I've said it again.  You are all aware of the new command staff and the goals they have set for the Post 10 Family.  In order to accomplish most of the goals, we really need your help and (again) active participation.

Thank you and hope to see you at the Post very soon.

Respectfully,


Bill Wilkinson, Commander
