Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy in 2021.  February 27th was the first event held by the Sons of the American Legion.  
Over 100 meatloaf dinners were sold and prepared for our first drive by dinner.  This was a sold-out event.   This was an amazing feat
by a great team of members in a short period of time.  Always looking for S.A.L. members to step in and volunteer.  Our Squadron is
only as strong as the members who get involved.  Try to support the legion and all that it has to offer its members.  Be on the lookout
for other dinners and any events that can be safely held at the post.

Commander’s Comments: It has been a year since the Corona Virus came to our country and brought so many things, that
were normal and routine, to a complete halt.
Our thanks to everyone who helped get us through this year. This includes the many that thoroughly cleaned and sterilized our
Post home. Many of these workers brought their own cleaning supplies and refused to accept reimbursement. They washed
walls, ceilings, bathroom stalls and hand scrubbed the restroom floors. They cleaned, waxed, and buffed the floors. They
scoured and polished the canteen grill area including the refrigerator, fryers, grill, and exhaust hood. They installed additional
video cameras inside and out, installed a new flat screen television in the hall, accomplished some overdue electrical updates
and more.
We also offer our thanks to our Canteen Staff and those who continued to patronize the Canteen. Additional gratitude to those
who continue to maintain the Post facilities and assure compliance with required social distancing and current health codes.
With the courage and dedication of our Staff, Executive Committee, members and volunteers, Post 572 has survived and
grown. We are now poised to do many more things beyond the normal and routine in the coming year.

Welcome to new Post members:  
Terry Propst, and Gabrielle White

Adjutant:  Spring arrives this month and as nature begins anew so does our Post.  Nominations for officers, committee
members, delegates to both the 13th District and State Convention will be accepted at the members meeting on Monday April
12th.  This Post like all other Posts need Legionaries to step up and volunteer to throw their caps in the ring and become a part
of the administration of this Post.  All that is required is that you are a American Legion member of our Post in good standing
and that you are committed to the Post and the American Legion.  You need to be present at the April or have submitted a
letter accepting the nomination.
You can only be nominated for one of the following offices:  Commander, 1st Vice Commander, 2nd Vice Commander, Finance
Officer and Executive Committee.  You can additionally be nominated for delegate to the 13th District Council and delegate to
the Department of Ohio Convention which will be held at the Holiday Inn, Independence on July 9th – 12th 2021.  Elections will
be held at the May meeting.

In the spirit of Saint Patrick’s Day:   "May you have all the happiness and luck that life can hold—and at the end of your
rainbows may you find a pot of gold."

Chaplain’s Corner:  Here we are in March already. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and first day of spring. Passover begins at
Sundown on the 27th and Palm Sunday is the 28th.  National Vietnam War Veterans Day is on the 28th.  Please remember
them in your prayers. Thanks, Jim
