Pulaski American Legion February I Reorganization Meeting Bob McCue called the meeting to order at 7: 00 PM. He explained, to thirty some members in attendance, the current organizational condition of Post 477. Bob said... The Legion Post has no officers. We are in danger of losing our charter. Many, once active, Legion members are now deceased or have aged and are no longer able to carry on. Some more able members have lost interest and no longer participate. The SAL has assumed responsibility for main- taining the building and grounds. They have also taken responsibility for special events such as the March Stagg. The Auxiliary provides much of the Legion's finan- cial support. Over the last five years poor attendance and lack of support by the membership has resulted in our leader- ship falling into the hands of a few people. We are missing five years of Post #477 histories. The Auxiliary reported breakfast for vets is slated for February 18 with setup February 17 at 9:00 AM. Very few reservations have been made. SAL reported plans for the NCAA Stagg were well underway. Jeff Laasch reported a person (name unknown) fell off the load- ing dock and was injured. He inquired as to our insur- ance but nothing has been heard of the incident since then. At tb.e Legion meeting Bob McCue presented more details of events over the past five years. Activities of the Legion were governed by very few members - not the whole body - of the Legion. He emphasized the need for participation by all members. He felt the first step needed to reorganize the Legion was to elect a Commander, Vice Com- manders and Treasurer and BudgetCommittee. Joseph Lucas was nominated to fill the Treasurer's office and Scott Johnson, Dean Cates and Alan Roos as Budget Committee officers. Bob McCue was nominated for the Post Commander office. All nominations were seconded and, being no opposing candidates, Bob McCue ordered the acting adjutant to record the nominees elected by unani- mous acclimation. Ken Lowe was nomi- nated for Senior Vice Com- mander; George Blue was nominated for Junior Vice Commander. There being no candidate nominated to oppose these men the Commander ordered the Acting Adjutant to record their election by unanimous acclimation. Commander Bob McCue appointed Kenneth Buckles to be his Adjutant. The Commander will journey to the Blooming- ton State Legion Office to obtain copies of their records for Post 477's activi- ties of the past five years. He will also obtain all necessary manuals and forms. Commander McCue asked all officers to bring him copies of their DD form 214 (discharge). American Legion Post Reorganized Due to declining par- ticipation, we had a special order of business at the February Legion meeting February 1. We have a full slate of officers and some new committee members. Attendance and willingness to serve was highly encour- aging. Many members have, or will soon receive, a pro- posal as to how the Sons of the Legion will be able to maintain bar service. Keep in mind that this is only a proposal. Your input or suggested changes are wel- come, but something must be done. The Sons are will- ing to manage the bar, but find staffing without Legion guidance to be untenable. Please help where you can, and ask yourself the same question we asked ourselves when our country called us veterans to serve, "If I don't, who will?" Meetings are held every first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the post hall. Thanks in advance. Bob McCue, Commander, Post #447 500 S. Garden St. Mt.
