Commander’s Comments:  Well here we are, entering the first full month of another new membership year. There is still time
to renew your membership to save your continuous years. If you haven’t renewed, I strongly encourage you do so immediately.
We are still in need of a few people to step up and accept a couple of positions. First, we desperately need a media/public
relations person. With the number of major events we hold each year, it is imperative that these events and our post get the
recognition we deserve. It is actually a very rewarding and fun position, dealing with local and national news and media people.
The same person could double as Historian. We need a post historian to register and document the various goings on at the
post. This is our centennial year and it would be nice to have someone work on putting together a Post History Centennial
Scrap Book.
It is very gratifying to see so many members willing to volunteer to help with the events at the post. However, it’s discouraging
we do not get the recognition we deserve. I try my best to give “shout outs” to all those who step up, but it would be nice to see
these events in the newspapers, magazines and even on TV. Anyone interested in accepting this position, please contact me
for more info. We Need You!

1st Vice Commander:  July 1st begins the 2020 membership drive, but if you have yet to renew for 2019 you still can, if you
want to continue your continuous service years with the American Legion.  You will be receiving renewal notices from the
American Legion, you can renew online at mylegion.org or send your payment to the Post, renew by November 11th and
receive your Early Bird.
Senate Bill 504 has passed and sent to the House of Representatives where a similar bill is still in committee.
Once passed and signed into law by the President, veterans who served honorably at least one day on Federal active duty
since December 7, 1941 will be eligible to join The American Legion.
Welcome to Post 572:  
Herbert Hilz, Gregory Bennett, Elliot Toth, Ronald Reese.

2nd Vice Commander:  Our Annual Post Family Picnic will be on Sunday August 11th from noon until 6pm at Saint Sava Picnic
Grove 2300 W Ridgewood Dr. I will be posting a Children signup sheet behind the bar for children and grandchildren of
members (2019 membership dues must be paid). I will also post a signup sheet for volunteers on the bulletin board. Help is
needed in all areas, from packing and moving in the morning, children/adult games, general help throughout the day, to
cleanup in the evening. If you have any questions please contact me at: 216-470-2579 after 7pm or email:
secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader

Chaplain’s Corner: This month we celebrate the birth of a new nation, our nation.  With an army already in the field, this
declaration of independence defined our nation and our commitment to each other and our GOD.  Let us pray that our nation
will continue to dedicate itself to this promise and that peoples of all faiths and even those who doubt the existence of a creator
will forever find a place in this the land of the free.


TAPS: The Adjutant reports that Legionnaire Joseph J Lucas has transferred to Post Everlasting and now reports to the
Commander of us all
