Department Commander Jerry Stewart 2017 - 2018
Department Commander October Message
Fall Conference is just around the corner and I am looking forward to seeing you all in the audience. Internal Affairs has put together a training program that will encompass everyone in the Legion and you should not miss this session.
National Commander Denise Rohan will be in the State starting October 21st and will be visiting many different Posts in the State. If you are going to be at the luncheon at Post 67 on the 23rd of October, please call the Post at 802-875-6009 so they can have an accurate count to prepare the meal.
Membership is our top priority and we are doing well to this date. Many Posts have hit the 55% target date and its now time to look ahead to the 65% target date. County and District Commanders need to emphasize to their Posts our membership program. Our Senior Vice Commander recently told National that we would be at 90.02% by the March target date. That could possibly win the Big 12 and earn us $2000.00 or $1000.00 towards electronic equipment.
Thanks to our Department Adjutant and our Senior Vice Commander for taking the time to attend the Commander/Adjutant meetings in Indianapolis. I was unable to go due to sickness but am gradually getting better.
In the meantime, thank a Veteran for what they do and continue looking for members for this great organization.
Huzon "Jerry" Stewart
