Department Commanders Message for April


Greetings All:

It looks like Spring has finally arrived. April is Children & Youth month and is time to plan scouting activities and Boys State participants should be selected. It is also time for election of Post officers and planning your installation ceremonies.

As Department Convention draws near, it is time to make your arrangements for meetings and rooms. The Holiday Inn in Rutland is very well prepared for our arrival. This should be a very good Convention, with everything happening in one location. I wish all candidates for office the best of luck.

I want to thank all the Posts for my invitations to your American Legion Birthday celebrations. I tried to make sure all were covered with Department Officers. Your hospitality and camaraderie was outstanding.

Mark your calendars for May 20th. Vermont Route 22A was officially named Desert Storm Veterans Memorial Highway and will be dedicated at Fair Haven Post #49 at 11 A.M., rain or Shine. That evening a joint Testimonial for Auxiliary President  Kathi Cayia and myself will be held at Middlebury Post #27. I hope to see you there.

Finally, I want to thank you for your help with my project. I am presenting the Vermont Veterans Home a check for $30,000 on April 12th.


Thank you and God Bless you all.

John
