Hello Fellow Legionnaires:
Soon the Department and National will be mailing out all the annual reports to posts. These reports are useful to report to the powers to be what and how the Legion is doing for veterans, children and youth and all the other things we do. Post Commanders/Adjutants when these reports arrive take five minutes fill them out and return them. Then your Post is done, over and everyone is happy!?!?
When I took on this chair two years ago I thought the post most likely to not fill out the reports would be the smaller posts thinking they probably felt they didn’t do enough or whatever. But I discovered it is just the opposite. I am asking every post when the Consolidated Post Report form arrives fill it out right away and return it. Most all the numbers are at your fingertips. I am going to call out those posts that for the past two years have failed to return a CPR. Commander/Adjutant of these posts help us out: McGregor; Sauk Centre; Walker; Flensburg; Royalton; Hackensack; Baudette; St. Stephen; Sauk Rapids; Brainerd; Kimball; Paynesville; Swanville; Pierz; Upsala; Akeley; Little Sauk; Sebeka; Boy River; Laporte; Cross Lake-Fifty Lakes; Avon; and Pine River. All others Thank you for returning the forms and keep up the good work. These reports are important and more so next year as they will be part of the goose egg program.
If your post is listed time to step up and get them done and return the CPR this year. With the virus, this year numbers may be down but even if it is zero fill out the report and return it. These reports should be arriving in the next few weeks and when they do take time right away and get them filled out and off your desk. Thank you all for what you do and appreciate your efforts.
