The autumn colors have peaked here in the kingdom…Halloween is just around the corner and before you know it, the holidays will be on us. But, before they arrive, Mother Nature’s winter wonderland will descend upon us like a white blanket.
The winter conference is not far off, January 16th and 17th and before you know it, Post elections will be here and, in some cases, new blood take over the reins.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. With Post membership rapidly declining due to attrition and a lack of new, young veteran’s taking advantage of the multitude of benefits available to them and their families by joining our ranks, many Post’s find themselves simply re-seating those existing officers who still care enough to continue supporting the efforts and goals of the legions.
Orleans Vermont Post #23 urges other post’s throughout the state, indeed, all the states, to increase their recruiting efforts in an attempt to draw these young warriors into our fold.
If you know of a veteran, young or old, who is eligible for membership, encourage them to stop by your post for a personal observation of its activities.
