Commander’s Comments:  July is the first full month of the new membership year. To those of you who regularly attend the
members meetings each month, you are well aware of the financial difficulties we faced over the last membership year. Despite
what appeared to be unsurmountable odds, we were able to survive with some creative money management and tightening up
the spending, along with some very generous donations from our members. Through all the trials and tribulations, we still had
the biggest “over quota” in memberships in the history of the post. We also saw all units pulling together to pull off one of the
best years in successful events in many years. We also enhanced our exposure and public relations within the community with
some very visible public events.

However, there are some projects that I wasn’t able to complete due to the monetary situation, but I have my sights set this
year on getting them checked off my “bucket list”. A major priority is that of getting a Post Historian / Public Relations,
someone who can document post activities, taking pictures and establishing relations with the media. This year this position
will prove to be one of the most beneficial to the post as we have many activities planned that would enhance the post most
favorably in the eyes of the community. Please remember that we are a volunteer organization and rely on members stepping
up to help when needed. We also are a non-profit and rely also on donations from business and members.  Together we will
make this a very successful membership year.

1st Vice Commander:  I would like to thank the membership for allowing me to serve as the 1st Vice of Post 572 at the eve of
a historic year.

Congress chartered the American Legion in 1919 - and the Legion’s 100th birthday is here. To help keep your American
Legion strong for the next 100 years, look for mailings from the American Legion in July to renew your Membership for the
year 2019. Renewing your membership early supports our programs and your local Post 572 so we can continue serving you
and the community.  

You can also serve your post by Volunteering for the Membership committee. We need volunteers to help verify new
membership applications and to help recruit move veterans to join Post 572. Please email erwin@swisscc.com if you would like
to volunteer.

Please welcome the following new members to the post:  
Jerry Hill, Daniel A Valek, William J Walters

2nd Vice Commander:  Time to start planning for our Annual Post Family Picnic. It will again be at St. Sava Picnic Grove,
located at 2300 W Ridgewood Dr. Parma 44129, on Sunday August 12th from noon until 6pm. I've posted a signup sheet for
children and grandchildren 12 and under. Please sign them up by August 4th, so that I will have time to get gifts for them. I
also have posted a signup sheet for volunteers. We will start at 9am on the 12th moving needed items to the picnic area and
your help would be appreciated. Any questions please contact me directly at 216-470-2579 after 7pm or email:
secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com Thank you, John Rader

Adjutant:  Here it is the last postal mailed newsletter.  This mailing along with the newsletter includes raffle tickets for the
picnic and a return envelope.  There is no obligation to buy the tickets, that is up to you to purchase one or two books or none
at all.  The 2019 membership drives will start on July 1st, if you want you can renew your membership (Legion, Auxiliary, S.A.
L.) by including a check for dues (indicate which organization) and a separate check with your ticket stubs completed with your
name and address.  Next postal mailing will be for the Children’s Christmas Party Raffle.

Send your email address to
alpost572@yahoo.com to receive future newsletters.  As always, the newsletter is available on the
alpost572.org (printable PDF version available) and if you have an account mylegion.org.  There will also be a
limited number of copies in the Canteen.

Congratulations and a shout out to our very own Commander Tony Kessler recipient of the 13th District Legionnaire of The
Year Award.  He was speechless (Well sort of, anyway).
