SENTINEL – AUGUST- 2022

I open this Sentinel article with some sad news. The Post learned early Friday morning Aug., 5th, that Department of Ohio Commander Brad Teis had passed away. Commander Teis had been sworn in at the 2022 Dept. Convention on the 3rd of July 2022. Our condolences goes out to the Teis family. On a happier note things have been going well at the Post. The electronic gambling machines have been well accepted by the members, the food nights have been going well and our new House Committee has been bringing entertainment into the Post. After a delay in getting the 2023 membership cards, the Legionnaires cards were delivered. We look forward to meeting our quota in a timely manner this year. If the Legionnaires have received their 2023 Dues Notice request the cards are here at the Post. You can renew online, by mailing to the Post or you can come to the Post and the Social Room Attendant will receive them. There is no news as to when the SAL membership cards will arrive. The Auxiliary will be notified as in the past. As mentioned in the past Sentinel article a few changes in the Post were upcoming. The change for the Post internet and television service was completed. One of the Post representatives that attended Buckeye Boys State, Harrison Cleveland, attended the Gen. Post meeting in July and gave a report on what he experienced during his time spent at BBS. The other young man that attended, John Burton, was unable to make the meeting. A new dishwasher was installed in the Social Room. An air conditioning unit was placed in the kitchen area. Rick Grainer has been cleaning and maintaining all the weapons within the Post. It had been quite some time since these weapons were fully stripped and cleaned. We thank Rick immensely. The Post was able to provide some community work for volunteers to clean the east fence area in the north parking lot. Additional work will be done in this area to make it cleaner and better. The annual D Day reenactment will be held on Aug., 13, 2022. Activity will be on-going the week of Aug. 15th at Township Park. The National POW/MIA Recognition Day ceremony will be held once again at the Post on Friday September 16, 2022 at 7:00 PM. Put this special ceremony on your calendar and join us at the Post for this event. After many years the Post will once again have a Golf Outing. This Outing will be held at Village Green Golf Course on Sat., Sept., 10th 2022. Call the Post for more information. Congratulations goes out to Boy Scout Matthew Van Epps as he has earned the rank of Eagle Scout. This is a great accomplishment for any young man in the Boys Scouts of America. Things are progressing very well at your Post 151, one of the finest Post’s in the state of Ohio.

Next regular membership meeting will be Tuesday August 23, 2002 7:30 PM

Regards,

Larry Latva, Commander
