Happy fall greetings everyone!

I don’t know about all of you, but I for one am very glad that fall is finally here! The air is
crisp, the apples are ripe and the leaves are turning beautiful colors!! What more could
you ask for?

We are still looking to hire a new general manager. We have interviewed several qualified
individuals and are in the process of deciding which one would best fit the needs of the
Legion. Hopefully, everything will be decided in the next couple of weeks. In the
meantime, please be patient with the front office. Joan is working double duty trying to
take care of us!! Make sure you stop and tell her what a great job she is doing!!
We finally got the Kneeling Soldier up and finished! It’s back by the pavilion. Make sure
you go take a look at it! Does anyone know who donated it to the Legion? Please give me
a call if you do.

The Post History project is moving along very slowly…..we are still looking for members
who can fill us in on the history of the post from the day it was chartered. I’ve only had
two veterans contact me. If you have photos, stories or memories that you would like to
share, please contact me or Tim Liffrig so we can get this documented. We will scan the
photos and give them back to you if you would like. Spread the word!!

I would love to see more of our members attend the 3rd District Fall Conference on
October 29-30 in Marshall MN. We are the largest post in the state so let’s make a good
showing!!

As you may have heard, the 2nd Vice position is now open. I’m looking for someone to
step in and help out until the elections next year. This is a very important job and we
really need to get someone in there who is motivated! Nominations for the position will be taken at the October meeting and if there is more than one person who is interested, we will have a special election in November. Please consider taking a leadership position!
Speaking of elections….I don’t know about you but I am very scared about the direction
our country is going. All these ads and news articles about the candidates just make me
ill. We need to make our politicians listen to us!! So make sure you get out and vote in
November!!

Here is my quote for this month!!
“Do all the good you can, to as many people as you can, as often as you can!!!

Sincerely, Commander Carla
