GREAT JOB 6TH DISTRICT. We swept the board at the Sweetheart Rally, with the Legion, SAL & Auxiliary all taking first place in membership.
Mid-Winter is behind us and I would like to thank everyone for their great reports. There was so much information shared. I am amazed at all we have going on in our programs.
I have been working with the group on the Constitution and Bylaws and Standing Rules for Department. We have done a bunch of housekeeping, as we call it to change where it said she to they or them, to reflect our new organization. We have also changed some wording to make it more reader friendly. Moved some articles around and there will be a couple of resolutions, but at this point very few. Basically, moving from the Standing Rules to the Constitution and Bylaws and moving within the articles in both. Some things that we do not have jurisdiction on were deleted, as we do not have jurisdiction to vote on and change them and they should not be in our rules.
Each Unit should also be making changes to their Constitution & Bylaws and Standing Rules also to reflect our changing organization.
As we start the downward slide on our year, I would still encourage Units to contact their delinquent members about their dues. Our veterans need each of these members. Remind them that they are helping our veterans by paying their dues. It is not to late to have a membership drive at your Post, set aside an evening to welcome your community and explain what your Units does for our veterans and how they can help.
Remember our veterans and their families in your prayers.
My theme this year is: Expanding the understanding of the needs of our veterans.
My symbol is a: Fan.
My project is: St. Cloud Stand Down and a joint project with our Jr. President of I-pads for the VA. I am hoping to raise $10,000.00. Gambling & poppy funds can be used.
