Commander’s Comments: Now that the eligibility restrictions for membership to the American Legion have been lifted, the
emphasis on community involvement becomes an even bigger factor in obtaining new members. There are literally thousands
of potential new legion members who can now join that were not previously eligible. I have always believed in community
interaction and I feel since accepting the commander role, I have made great strides in improving and maintaining community
relations. Events that are open to the public, the color guard participating in parades and visiting schools and doing flag raising
ceremonies for our local business. Our Veterans day and Viet Nam day dinners are a great way to get new veterans to see the
benefits of the American Legion, The First Responders Appreciation Night Event is one all-encompassing event that benefits
the Post. It shows our sincere appreciation to our Law enforcement and fire departments, it creates a caring image to the
community, it is a tremendous tool for getting new memberships. However, just holding these events are not enough, we all
must do our part by “asking” people to join the American Legion. There is a whole new group of veterans out there, some of
which wanted at some point to join, but were not eligible but now they can. In addition, the Auxiliary has changed their
eligibilities also to allow male spouses of a veteran join. Ask any veterans you know to visit our post, give them a tour show
some of the benefits, at least give them a membership application.

1st Vice Commander:  There is still time to get your Early Bird!  November 11th is the cut-off date.  Help the Post make quota
before the end of the year.  Our current membership on September 25th stands at 272 which is just over 63% of our goal of
431 for 2020. This total membership does not include 2019 members who have not yet renewed.  If you have recently renewed
in September, your membership may not have been processed in time with The American Legion and chances are you will be
receiving a 2nd renewal notice.  Please try and renew as soon as possible and keep your consecutive years of membership!  
Folks you are our best ambassador of our Post and The American Legion.  Get the word out and recruit especially now that
eligibility has expanded.
Welcome to our newest members:
 Donald L Bomba, Michael T Cooper, Jonathan P Pellegrino.

2nd Vice Commander:  October 27 from 1pm -3pm will be Post 572 Children’s Halloween Pizza Party in the Post Hall.
Members in good standing please sign up your children/grandchildren by October 20, so I can have a headcount. Signup sheet
will be behind the bar. Volunteer signup sheet will be posted on the bulletin board.  Pizza, drinks, and candy to be provided, for
the children only. Donations in advance will be accepted. If you have any questions please contact me at: 216-470-2579 after
7pm or email: secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader

Adjutants Report:  The Members Meeting on Monday November 11th has been cancelled.  Enjoy your Veterans Day and
hope to see you at the free dinner at the Post.  Next month I will be sending out by First Class Mail the Children’s Christmas
Party Raffle Tickets and I need your help.  If you have a new mailing address please send it or otherwise let me know.
As always there is a push for new members and especially retaining our current members.  Let us not be strangers to one
another.  Introduce yourself to a member you don’t know, don’t ignore those that are by themselves unless that’s what they
want.  Small talk is a great way to get to know someone, common likes, family, past experiences, hobbies, expertise and
occupation.  Don’t talk politics, religion and believe it or not combat memories, many may be proud of their service but do not
want to live in the past.  Remember in social settings it is about mutual respect.  Set this goal for yourself:  Make new friends
and acquaintances every day when ever possible.  The real riches in life is friendship and tolerance.  Happy Halloween!

Chaplain’s Corner: Welcome to October and as always, I ask for your prayers for all our servicemen and servicewomen,
especially those serving in all the dangerous places in the world. (This seems to be everywhere lately).  October 7th. 2001,
Operation Enduring Freedom began in Afghanistan and it seems to be still going on.  October 8th. You Kippur begins at
sundown, I wish Yom Tov to all our Jewish members.
October 13th. is the 244th birthday of the U.S. Navy!  The 14th. is Columbus Day, the 31st. Halloween, and since the 24th. is
United Nations Day, I will close with a quote from Dag Hammarskjold, former Secretary General of the U.N.
“The best and most wonderful thing that can happen to you in this life is that you should be silent and let God work and speak.”

TAPS: The Adjutant reports that Legionnaire Edward H Spence has transferred to Post Everlasting and now reports to the
Commander of us all.
