FROM GERALD KAUFMAN, HISTORIAN
Welcome to 2018!! We now have twelve months until our 100th birthday party. Last month I posted the user name and password for the Centennial website in an attempt to make it easier for individual Posts to add their information to the website. You can do a lot with the Centennial website, like post your historical pictures, old and new news articles pertaining to your Post or add historical documents and add time line events both old and new. If you are having a hard time with the website, please do not hesitate in calling me. I will walk you through it. If you do not have access to a computer, please let me know. Most times we can coordinate with your District Commanders to get you access to a computer or I can handle some of it for you. We still have 146 posts that have no pictures or history on the website.
This year at the National Convention in Memphis will be the beginning of our 100th anniversary and the Department of Florida would like to be well represented not only on the Centennial website but also in how our Posts are celebrating this momentous event. The Post Historians are the front line in maintaining and documenting our history. If you have never put an annual Post history book together I can get information to you with examples, but the final product is up to you as the Post Historian. Please do not forget that there is an award giving by the Department of Florida at our annual Convention for the best Post history book. Those entries are due in June. I hope all of you have a fantastic 2018 and I look forward to seeing you in June.
