It is hard to believe that summer of 2020 is almost over. The year 2020 has been a very trying year for everyone. I once again open this issue of the Sentinel hoping that this finds you, our members, safe and healthy. The entire world is entering the 6th month of the COVID -19 pandemic. Hopefully soon there will be vaccine that will be able to conquer this virus. The Post continues to abide by the rules and recommendations that have been posted by the State of Ohio. The Social Room Attendants have continued to do an excellent job of maintaining the cleanliness of the Post. As a reminder, masks are still required to be worn while in the Post as well as all other requirements that have been in place for months. The only exception to wearing a mask is when you are seated. We hope that when our members and guests visit the Post, they have the feeling that it is a comfortable place that is safe and secure. The Post Honor Guard has recently been called to provide gun volleys at funerals for a fallen veteran. In addition, the Guard will be posting Colors prior to each CHS home football game. 2021 Membership renewals continue to arrive at the Post. The yearly audit of the Post finances was completed. This was accomplished via telephone. The Post had an excellent audit. An increase in members coming to the post has been noticed. We appreciate the many members and guests that do visit the Post and feel comfortable while here. Although members and guests have been visiting the Post, the finances are considerably down. The Executive Committee will continue to look for ways to save money but, as mentioned previously in the past, not at the expense of safety!! The food nights have been continuing…Mon and Wed – wings; Tue and Fri – various meals are being offered; Thur – pizza and stromboli will be available. Check the lighted board in the Post for the various menus and check the website at legionpost151.com for up to date information on many items. The Fri night and Queen of Hearts drawings will continue. The painting of the outside storage container is almost complete. Much work has been done and it will look great when completed. All committee meetings and regular membership meetings will continue. Hope you can attend. Time and dates have remained the same as in the past. The Post once again appreciates your patience and understanding as we go through the terrible situation that we are in. Please remember, the Post abides by all the procedures set by the State of Ohio. We do not and cannot make our own rules. We are looking forward to eventually getting back to the normal running of your Post…one of the greatest Post in the state of Ohio….American Legion Cowle Post 151. STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!!
