Commander’s Comments: In my nearly 5 years as Commander of post 572, I have been blessed with the support of some
really dedicated officers, E-Board members and volunteers. Thanks to the afore mentioned, we have made great progress
toward becoming one of, if not the “best damn post in Ohio”. However, we must keep the momentum going. With nominations
for officers coming up in just a couple of months (April), we need members willing to step up and take creative and leadership
roles in our post. As a fulltime volunteer and commander, I found renewed purpose in life by continuing to serve veterans,
community and family. It is very fulfilling and gratifying to play an integral role in servicing the needs of our Veterans. It is crucial
for the future of post 572 that we have members willing to throw their hat in the ring and accept responsibility as officers or
committee members. Now is the time to start contemplating taking on a nomination. You are more than welcome to approach
existing officers with your intentions, and they would be more than happy to explain all facets of the position and even let you
“tag along” for the next 2 months. Elected officers’ position open for nomination are: Commander, 1st Vice commander, 2nd
Vice commander and Finance officer. Adjutant, Chaplain and Service Officer are positions that can be appointed by the
commander. There will also be E-board positions open. Thanks for your support and consideration.

1st Vice Commander: Our membership has been off to a good start, but we can still improve. Talk with your friends and
neighbors, if they aren’t already members, see if they want to come into the Family. We can use new members to fill our
quotas! Current renewals for 2020 stands at 361 which is 70 short of the goal. Quota currently at 84%.  We are constantly
looking to make improvements to the post in an effort make a more enjoyable experience for our members". .....Welcome to our
newest members: Richard Thompson, Donald Bomba, Roy Jech and Eric Toth

2nd Vice Commander:  American Legion Post 572 Annual Chili Cook-off will be Saturday February 15th. Contest is open to
members (or spouses) of Post 572 in good standing (2020 dues paid), and limited to 12 contestants. Dead-line for contestant
signup is Sunday February 9th. Signup sheet is behind the bar. Chili must be tabled by 12:45, and doors open at 1. Sampling
is open to the public. Cost for 12 teasers is $5. Sorry, no bowls will be sold until after judging is completed (and if there is any
Chili remaining). Come early because the Chili goes fast. Judge's and People's choice awards. I could use help setting up
(10am Saturday morning), serving, and tear-down. A volunteer signup sheet is posted on the bulletin board. Look for upcoming
events: Corned Beef Dinner March 14th and Children's Eater Pizza Party, details coming out soon. If you have any questions
please contact me at: 216-470-2579 after 7pm or email: secondvice_alpost572@yahoo.com - Thank you, John Rader

Adjutants Report:  Sunday February 2nd is Groundhog Day and although this winter has been fairly mild so far, we all know
how bad it can be in February and into March and even April.  This day is also National Four Chaplain’s Sunday as enacted by
Congress and the 13th District will be observing this day with a remembrance service at the VA Medical Centers Main Chapel
located at Wade Park starting at 1:00 PM.  Everyone public included can attend this somber service honoring 4 WWII Army
chaplains of different faiths who sacrificed their lives at sea so 4 others may live.  For you current and former Scouters the 1st
Sunday in February is Scout Sunday.  The American Legion and Scouts share a common goal which is service to the
community, state and nation.  We all share in a common history and belief in America may we never forget.  Lastly it is the day
of the last NFL game of the season, the Super Bowl.  As many of you will attend parties and plan to consume many adult
beverages, have a plan to get safely home so you can call off sick on Monday.  One day hopefully in our lifetime it will be the
Browns vs the Lions, 2 teams who have never made it to the Super Bowl.

Chaplain’s Corner: Happy February everyone, I hope you are all doing well now that winter has finally arrived.
February 1st is National Freedom Day, let us not forget all of our members, past and present who made it possible to celebrate
this day. Also remember your significant other on Valentine’s Day, and since this is Heart Month, please take care of
yourselves, we need all of you and our Honor Guard does like to be out in cold weather. Jim






TAPS:  The Adjutant reports that no Legionnaires have transferred to Post Everlasting and will not be reporting to the
Commander of us all.
