The 2021 cards still have not been received as this article was being written.  A "technical difficulty" held up our squadron from
obtaining 2021 cards, that should be cleared up now and we should be receiving cards soon.  I thank you for your patience with
this.  If you submitted payment already you will not lose your early bird status.  As soon as the 2021 cards are received, they will
be sent out.  Again thank you for being continued members.
If you haven't paid dues for 2020 or if you know someone that hasn't paid, that needs to get in to stay current and to keep those
continued years.   Dues are $20 for regular members and $15 for juniors and dual membership.  If you know anyone that
qualifies or is interested in joining the Sons of the American Legion please have them email at salsquadron572@gmail.com.  
Eligibility details can be found at  https://www.legion.org/sons/join .  

The post is open for business so stop in and support the canteen. Mask protocol is in place.
There is no S.A.L. events planned yet so keep checking in to see if this will change. Sons of the American Legion meetings are
every 3rd Monday of the month.  Members are encouraged to attend meetings, voice any concerns or generally get to know
other members.  We are often called upon to help with events and activities so the more members that are willing and available
makes the post a stronger post.
Thank you, Kevin Litvak: SAL Commander   
Commander’s Comments: The fifth section of The American Legion Preamble reads:"To inculcate a sense of individual
obligation to the community, state and nation.
" Joseph J. Jacubic, Post 572, has a rich history of fulfilling this obligation,
starting with our founders nearly 75 years ago, and continuing with our newest veteran members. Visits to veterans in VA
hospitals and nursing homes, food drives, cash donations, Gifts for the Yanks, Honor Guard ceremonies, are only some of the
works we do to benefit our community. We could do so much more with the involvement of more individuals.
The word “individual” is specifically included in the preamble. The American Legion founders believed that building a better
nation “starts first with the individual in their own community”. They believed that this individual obligation should be a “cardinal”
principle of the American Legion. When was the last time you helped with your individual part?
The Post is open, operating in a safe environment with face masks, social distancing, and continual sanitizing. Stop by the post
or join our next membership meeting to see and hear what we are doing, and how we are planning to grow our Post, to fulfill our
obligation to our community. Find out how fulfilling your individual obligation can help accomplish even more.

1st Vice Commander: Membership renewals for 2021 are in full swing. Our goal is to be at 55% of renewals by November 3,
2020. Thanks to you. We are already at 63%. We need the get the 221 members who need to renew to join in and renew to
help us meet our membership quota for this year. Renew today and your membership will extend until December 31, 2021. Don’
t wait until the end of the calendar year. The easiest way to renew your membership and keep current is online. All you need is
your membership number and last name. Go to www.legion/renew.org. It’s automated and you do not have to waste a stamp or
write a check.  For God and Country, Tom Thompson 1st Vice Commander

2nd Vice Commander:  School is starting up, so slow down in the school zones. I'm kicking around ideas for the Children's
Halloween this year. With current restrictions it's will need to be different. Anyone having ideas, let me know. Same goes for the
Children's Christmas Party. We are having another Gun Raffle. Drawings will be the month of December, more details to come.
Everyone Stay Safe.

Chaplain’s Corner:  I pray everyone is keeping cool and avoiding COVID 19 as best as you can. September is rather busy
with remembrance days. The 11th is Patriots Day, the 17th, Constitution Day and U.S. Citizenship Day, 18th, POW/MIA
Recognition, U.S. Air Force established and Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown and ends at sundown on the 20th. On the
27th, Yom Kippur begins at sundown and ends at sundown on the 28th.
I ask you, if you are not registered to vote please do so, this is very important, especially this year. Thank, you! Jim
