From the Commander:  I hope this newsletter finds everyone doing well and staying healthy.

The Post plans on opening at the end of the month following state guidelines concerning safety for both workers and members who will be patronizing the Post Canteen once again. You will find information concerning this in this newsletter.

 

I am going to touch on the Election policy. There will be no Election this year. National Headquarters has decided to adopt a “Stay in Place” policy for the current elected officers.  What this means is that every elected Officer will remain in that capacity until next year’s election should they choose to do so. There still may be resignations and/or appointments made during this time. That is the case for our Post.

 

I have decided to resign as Commander of Post 1988 effective when the General Membership meeting on Monday July 6th is called to order. There will be no General Membership meeting on Monday June 1st. Our current 3rd Vice Commander, Gary Stern, will be stepping up to be the new Commander of the Post. He will be appointing Dick Nelson as the new 3rd Vice Commander to take his place. Please give them your full support and co-operation as they take on the new challenges brought on by the COVID-19 crises. One other office needs to be filled and that is Post Adjutant. The duties of this office are critical to our operation. This individual will be taking minutes for all Post Meetings (Trustee, Executive and General Membership). If you are interested in this position or know of someone who is, please talk to myself, Dick Nelson or Bob Schinaman.

 

I want to thank the current state of officers for all your support and help over the last 2 years. It has been an honor to serve with each of you. I also want to extend my gratitude to the ladies auxiliary for all they have done for our Post and the support you have given me during my tenure. Thank you to the Son’s organization. You guys have been instrumental to our success and I speak for all our members when I say how much we appreaciate your efforts.

 

I am looking forward to what the future holds for our Post. Will see all of you soon.

 

Dennis Esterkamp, Commander
