Department of Minnesota, 6th District

Greetings Morrison County Legion Families,

I hope all is well as we enter the Fall season.  Looking forward to seeing the Fall colors in our beautiful part of the State.  

Membership is looking great already; Our County is at 62% as of 9/9/2022.  Hillman is leading the way at 72%!  Every Post is doing a great job! Thank you and keep it trending the right way!

Thank you to Pierz Post 341 for the invite to their Membership appreciation Dinner on October 23rd.  I cannot wait to meet the members. 

Morrison County Council Meets the 2nd Monday of every other Month.  Our next meeting will be October 10th at the Bowlus Post, 201 2nd Ave N Bowlus, MN.  Our Meeting includes Aux, SAL & Post members. 

Our last meeting was August 8th at the Flensburg Post.  Only 2 Posts & 2 Auxiliaries were represented.   

The County council also needs Dues from the Posts & Auxiliaries.  Dues are $15 a year and help with cost of supporting our meetings, postage, and support of Legion activities. The County Council also actively supports Wreath for the Fallen each year.  Dues are vital to continuing the County Council. Please remit dues at the next meeting.  Dues can be submitted at the Bowlus Meeting on Oct 10th.  If you cannot attend, they can be mailed to myself at 18328 Riverwood Dr, Little Falls, MN 56345.

Each meeting Department & District information is shared with everyone along with membership results and figures.  I try to arrange Guests for each meeting.   Our meetings are relaxed and inclusive and there is normally a light supper provided afterwards.  Meeting with other local Post, Auxiliary and SAL officers and members is always a good thing and leads to learning new strategies and activities you may want to try at your Post home!  We make time for each Post, Unit & Squadron to present what their plans are for fundraisers, meetings, and events. 

To Our County Post & SAL Commanders & Auxiliary Presidents,

There has been a considerable drop off in attendance since Covid affected us. I really need your support in attendance.  We meet once every other Month on the 2nd Monday of the Month.  County meetings are a great way to meet your peers and other members from across the County.  They are open to all members. 

I’m hoping to have a couple of Guests at the next meeting. 

My contact information for attending any meeting or event is 507-398-6336 & costellomichael68@gmail.com  Feel free to invite me to a meeting and please know, you’re welcome at all County Council meetings. 

Michael Costello, Morrison County Commander
