Commander’s Corner

Department Commander Eunice Butts

May 2023

Congratulations to all Posts that have achieved 100% and above. Let us continue to strive for 100% for the Department of Florida. Even though we had weather catastrophes that resulted in the loss of homes, properties, American Legion Post home, and lives, we are in the top 20 Departments in membership.

As of this post, I have completed all District visitations. Thanks to the Legionnaires and the Department of Florida family for the wonderful hospitality, home-cooked meals, and words of encouragement.

I attended the 3rd District Picnic, Auxiliary and Sons of The American Legion Homecoming, Post 103’s Easter breakfast, assisted with presenting medals and certificates to JROTC Cadets in West Palm Beach, FL, guest speaker at Post 199, helped with giving awards at Middleton High School in Tampa, FL, and attended LIT’s Dinner in St. Petersburg Beach, Fl.

Consolidated Post Reports are due no later than May 3, 2023.  Please send your Addendum and copy of the narrative to the Department Headquarters. You have done the work. Report this information and take credit for all that you do. We need 100% reporting for Florida. Department Children and Youth Chair Dianne Boland and her team did an AWESOME job at the Children and Youth Picnic. Having children present and participating was a bonus. Congratulations, PDC Dianne Boland, for a job well done. Memorial Day is observed this month. Let us not forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice and gave their lives for us.

It is that time again for District Constitutional Conferences. Remember, 100% for membership and 100% for CPR reporting. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
