Happy Spring, the warmer weather is upon us and hopefully everyone is staying healthy and safe.  It has been brought to my
attention that some notifications and updates are not being seen and people are missing out on information.
Please follow the Public Facebook page link https://www.facebook.com/SAL572Parma
Flyers for events are typically posted on the Legions website http://www.alpost572.org/ and around the canteen. This newsletter is
also posted to the website. The canteen calendar also lists the events. Any suggestions on better ways to communicate events
please let me know. We are always looking for S.A.L. members to step up and volunteer for events. Our squadron is only as strong as
the members who get involved.  We have some important financial decisions to make and it would be beneficial for more members to
be a part of the process.  Next meeting is April 19th, hope to see some members present for it. 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.
*
* If your membership card does not have 2021 on it you are delinquent and technically not a member in good standing. **
Get those dues paid to stay current and to keep those continued years.  Dues are $20 for regular members and $15 for juniors and
dual membership.  Contact 1st Vice Commander Chris Smith or mail/drop off your renewal in the canteen mailbox. 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 . We do have transfer forms and new member forms if you know
someone that wants to be a part of Squadron 572.  Thank you, Kevin Litvak: SAL 572 Commander
Commander’s Comments: The nominations for Post officers will take place at our April 12th membership meeting. Next year
will be a year of growth and continued success for our Post. The new year will require the continued support of those who have
already done so much during this pandemic year. It will also require others to contribute more to help maintain and grow our
Post.
I will not be running for Commander for next year. We are looking for members with positive new ideas and high energy levels
to step up to leadership positions. If you care about the future of our Post and believe in all the great possibilities for its future,
please consider being nominated as an officer or Executive Committee member.

1st Vice Commander:  Our 2021 membership quota is 412.  We are now at 373 or 90.53% of our goal.  If you know of a
member that has not renewed for the 2021, please reach out to them. Remind them of all of the advantages of being a member
of the American Legion, especially Post 572. If you know of some special reason why a member has decided not to renew,
please let me know. Perhaps we can resolve that situation.
Remember that the canteen access key cards have been turned off for members that have not renewed for 2021.

Welcome new member
Salvatore (Sal) Germano to our Post.

2nd Vice Commander: I wish to thank all of the volunteers who helped out with the Corned Beef Dinner, THANK YOU ALL.
Thank you all for purchasing dinners/sandwiches and supporting our Post. The July Gun Raffle Tickets are available in the
Canteen, see Tom Thompson if you have any questions regarding the Gun Raffle. Please contact me if you have any
comments or questions at: 216-470-2579 (after 7pm) or email: secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader


Adjutant:  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.

Happy Easter to all and may you and your families have a joyous day and may you all stay healthy and please consider
running for a Post office, we really need you.

Chaplain’s Corner:  I would like to wish everyone a very Blessed and Happy Easter and Passover.  There is an excellent
article in the April issue of the Legion magazine entitled Whatever Happened To Civics? It talks about the fact that the subject
is not taught in school anymore and that the younger generation has no idea what is written in our constitution or what our
country is all about. I recommend reading it.  The following is a quote from Jimi Hendrix “When the power of love overcomes the
love of power, the world will know peace.” Jim




TAPS: The Adjutant reports that Legionnaires Salvatore Felice and Joseph Giampietro have transferred to The Post
Everlasting and now reports to the Commander of us all.

Canteen News:  The final Fish Fry of the season will be April 2. Enjoy a Fish Dinner $9, Fish Sandwich Meal $6 or Shrimp Dinner

Bucket of the Month is Miller High Life. Get 5 bottles of Miller High Life in a bucket of ice for $10 all month long. Don't forget our
