Dr. Carl R. Moon, 6th District Membership Director
11220 Wild Rose Trail NW; Walker MN. 56484
We are now one month into the new membership year and so far; no major glitches. Although I finally realized that I was supposed to have provided Ken Meyer with the new Post’s goals for 2022-2023. I did get those to Ken and as you will see in his next report, everyone’s goal was increased by one over last year’s final turn-in. The only Posts that I did not increase were Akeley Post 363 as they are a PUFL Post and Pinewood Post 438. The two additional members that would have been added to their Post were added to Sobieski’s goal.
Our first Goal of getting Off-of-the Goose Egg by the 27th of July deadline was achieved and I want to thank everyone who helped to make this possible.
Richard Cross and I just reviewed all of the Post Officer’s Lists and made a few corrections. These will be listed on the District’s Web Site and I hope will be published in the next bulletin.
Our next membership goal is to be at 50% by the Harvest Rally on September 10th at Legionville. Please make every effort to get as many memberships into Department by September 8th so they can be counted. As best I can tell we are currently in second place behind the Third District.
In my last article I wrote about telling potential new members about all of our great programs and benefits. At our last Post membership meeting in Zimmerman a younger new SAL member got up and spoke about how important it is to let our communities know what our Legions are doing for their local youth, sports programs, Veterans, and citizens. So; get your name and the recognition your Post deserves out there. Just doing good things doesn’t mean people know about it.
