Mark Bero is presented certificate by 5th District
Commander William Park
In addition to the presentation of the certificate in honor of Allen Bero, department vice commander Dale Dingman introduced a motion to make a donation from the 5th District American Legion to Operation Comfort Warriors (the department commander's project) in Allen Bero's name to honor him. The presentation is to be made at the National Commander's visitation next April 10th at the Beeches in Rome, NY.
Each post should have their packet of information on the national commander's visitation next April. They were passed out at this meeting and Commander Waters will distribute them to each post. Please make use of this information, send boosters (PRINTED PLEASE!) for the visitation. Plan to attend the dinner on Wednesday April 10th, 2013 at the Beeches to show our support for the national commander.
Watch the Oswego County Newsletter for more information as it is available. Although the dinner seems far away, time flies and it takes time to get all the planning and programs set up. Each post should at least send their commander to this dinner to greet and meet our national leader.
The next 5th District meeting will be held in Onondaga County on Sunday February 10, 2013 at James H. Spire Post #787, American Legion Drive, Cicero, NY.
MIDWINTER CONFERENCE is coming right up at Albany, NY January 25-27, 2013. Get your reservations in early. Now is the time to do it!
