Commander’s Comments:   

The business, and health of the Post is a priority of mine. Many members, and guests make positive comments on the direction the Post has taken. I want to be clear, that I alone cannot take credit for the many changes in the Post. This is a team effort, and without your buy-in to the ideas, or positive feedback, the momentum is lost.                                                                                                                     

       Please thank the Post Eboard, the  Legionnaires, the Legion Riders, the Sons of the American  Legion, Legion  Auxiliary, Canteen Staff, and the countless volunteers that go the extra mile to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our members, and community. Our continued success rests on each one of your shoulders. 

       Activities are open to all members, and I strongly encourage each member to make a commitment, and attend events, donate or volunteer. The old saying is "If you haven't volunteered, you have no place to gripe" The Event Committee is always looking for new members and ideas.

       The inspection of the basement by the Cleveland Food Bank has been accomplished. The inspector requires that the carpet in the basement be removed, and before we get the green light, we must have carpet, and glue remnants removed, and freezers in place. At that point Cleveland Food Bank will be able to provide food items for distribution. If you have some free time and would like to volunteer leave a mssg for Mike Burk or the Commander. Also if anyone has knowledge of products or methods to remove carpet glue, we would like to hear your suggestion.

      There will be some changes, and additions to the canteen in the very near future. Please be patient, and cooperative during this process. These projects will enhance our activities.

      Just a reminder that impaired driving (alcohol/substances) is Driving Under the Influence. Your actions have consequences. If you indulge, and need a ride, let someone know before you get behind the wheel. 

                                                                        For God & Country, Erich Pfleaidermahnn Commander

2nd Vice Commander’s Comments:   Our Trunk-n-Treat for the children/grandchildren of American Legion Post 572 Members in good standing is on Sunday October 30th from 1-2pm. If you can't make it and would like to donate goodies for the children, please drop off your donations to the Canteen Staff. I've been in contact with Santa and he is looking forward to visiting the children of Post 572. We are asking parents/grandparents to signup their children (ages 12 and under) - sign up sheet will be behind the bar in the canteen. Please remember this is for American Legion Post 572 members in good standing (2022 dues paid). We are trying something new this year. We are asking parents to bring in 1 - inexpensive wrapped gift with your child's PRINTED FIRST AND LAST NAME on a tag. Gifts will be placed under the tree and passed out by Santa and his helpers on Sunday Dec. 11th. There will be pizza for the children after Santa's visit.

Our Color Guard has many ceremonies on and around Veterans Day, Friday November 11th. If your child/grandchild's school has a ceremony, please try to attend. Mission BBQ in Parma will have a ceremony at noon on 11/11 as well, hope to see you there.
