Commander’s Comments

American Legion Post 221

Greetings, another new membership year has begun. In the coming days you will receive your new membership enrollment card, I hope you will consider returning it early, as this will help us in making the membership goals established by the Department of Ohio. This call is not only for Legion members, it includes the American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion and Legion Riders. Thank you for being a member of Massillon American Legion Post 221, your participation is greatly appreciated.
I would like to thank everyone who attended the Picnic on the Porch, the turnout was outstanding. I want to thank the volunteers and Club Company for putting together such a fine event. We need more events to produce such great turnouts. Which brings me to the subject of fund raising, we need suggestions for events that will generate more income to fund our charitable causes, like helping our fellow veterans who are down on their luck and need some financial help. Please drop off your suggestions in the tavern or the Commander’s mail box in the tavern, all suggestions will be considered.
We are seeking a person who would be interested in assuming the Second Vice-Commander’s position, who is willing to contribute to the efforts of making our post a great place to be. See me or any member of the leadership team.
~~Howard Marotto, Commander
