October 2022

Commander’s Comments:   Summer has come to an end, and I'm glad to see fall roll in. Hopefully Mother Nature will bless us with a few weeks of mild Indian Summer temperatures.

It has been an extremely busy month at the Post. Maintenance issues such as the resurfacing, and re-striping of the parking lot. The floors in the Post Canteen were stripped, waxed, and polished. Thank you Joe Pertz, and his son Chris Pertz for an excellent job. We must address maintenance issues when they arise. Altered hours of operation will be kept to a minimum. We thank you for your cooperation and support.

If you have any valid concerns, and/or complaints, please leave me a note with your name and phone number so I can address your concerns personally. Give me a few solutions on how we can address and validate your issue.  If a complaint is made against another member, your name must be included to make the complaint valid. The accused has a right to confront the accuser in a controlled environment.

Did you know that our VOLUNTEERS at the Post work for free? Their worth and praise comes when they are "THANKED BY YOU." Dont miss the opportunity to give them praise.

Welcome to all of our new Post members. We have many activities and look forward to seeing you participate.

 

With our world in crisis, lets keep the Post a positive welcoming place for all to enjoy!  

For God and Country,  Erich Pfleaidermahnn Commander

 

2nd Vice Commander’s Comments:   We will be hosting a Trunk-n-Treat for the children/grandchildren of American Legion Post 572 Members in good standing on Sunday October 30th from 1-2pm - PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE. 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. He is scheduled for Sunday December 11th, time to be determined. Please be on the lookout for upcoming additional information. If you have any comments or questions, please contact me at: 216-470-2579 (after 7pm) or email: secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader

 

Chaplains Corner:  I hope everyone had a wonderful summer. Welcome to fall.

This month Yom Kippur begins at sundown on the 4th and ends at sundown on the 5th.

The Navy has a birthday on the 13th and Navy Day is the 27th. Perhaps Bob Piatak, Mike Burke, or one of our other Navy members can explain why these days are two weeks apart.

The 26th is Day of the Deployed, please take some time to think about and pray for our men and women currently in harms way.

I close with a quote from Zig Ziglar “The greatest source of happiness is the ability to be grateful at all times.” Happy Halloween! Jim

 

TAPS:  The Adjutant reports that Legionnaire David Kareha, Army Special Forces veteran has transferred to Post Everlasting this past month.
