The American Legion, Department of Maryland
As we begin this new Legion year, there are three themes that we need to focus on: MEMBERSHIP, FAMILY, and VOLUNTEERISM. These are factors without which an American Legion Post (or any organization) cannot survive.
MEMBERSHIP: We have a great membership, BUT we need to grow. The major questions are: Where do we want to go? What do we need to do to achieve this? Who will/can help achieve this? I believe the answers lie with our current members. We all need to help with recruiting efforts. I'm sure that every one of us knows someone: friend, neighbor, or co-worker that is eligible to join this fine organization. We need to get the word out about the principles upon which the American Legion was founded and which still continue to the present day.
FAMILY: I am primarily speaking about the "Legion" family because we are, in truth, a family: the American Legion members, the American Legion Auxiliary members, and the Sons of The American Legion members are ALL vital to the continuing success of the Post. This Post cannot survive or grow without the support of ALL members of the "Family". And as with most families, there will be differences of opinion, but these can only strengthen the bonds that bring us together.
VOLUNTEERISM: No Post can exist without every one stepping up to help out as best they can. Each and everyone of us has a unique talent to help out in some way. And as the old saying goes, "Many hands make light work." If you can help setting up for a function, helping in the kitchen or outside, or just picking up a bit of trash on the floor, it will help. Volunteering for something does not have to entail hours of work, sometimes just a 10 or 15 minute "helping hand" is enough. Let's ALL do our part to keep Post 206 the best it can be.
For God and Country,
