1 MAY NEWSLETTER Page 1

2 Commander s Corner May is a month of transition. Our high school seniors will soon be off on their new adventures, and our Post will play host for one young man s sendoff party as he completes his studies at Park Hill and reports to Fort Jackson, SC for basic training. This same young man spent time at our Post for the last 11 years as a member of Cub Scout Pack 393 and Boy Scout Troop 393; he earned his Eagle and received the award in our hall. We re making a difference in our youth programs. We completed elections for our 2018/2019 slate and have our team from this past year returning for another tour of duty. This stability will help us have a great year. Our Auxiliary also recently concluded elections and they chose a new slate of officers because our Auxiliary President, Cheryl Hainkel, will now be leading the District 3 Auxiliary. Congrats to Cheryl; we re excited to see what you can do for all our organizations across Northwestern Missouri. We re set for a great 2018/2019. We ve welcomed several new groups into the Post these last couple months. In March, we welcomed Warriors Ascent and in April we welcomed Brandon Russell s Flash Dash team and Habitat for Humanity. In all these cases, we committed time, talent and some treasure to make an impact in the Kansas City Northland. To support this effort, some of our members are expanding their volunteerism and taking a larger role in our Post life; we need that to continue and increase. We re improving our community. We are living up to our charter in many ways, but we ve got some work to do as well. Our membership is active, but it s down a bit. That s ok. I d rather have a leaner, more effective outfit than a large enrollment / low involvement one. We still rely on less than 25 members to do most of our volunteer effort that needs to increase if we are to build on what we ve done this past year. We can start with a few short term events: We will distribute Buddy Poppies again on Memorial Day weekend; this is a great chance for our community to see us and for us to explain the role veterans play in our community. Please consider donating some time during this opportunity to interact with Kansas Citizens. In June, we ll prepare for our 4 th of July parade. We will again partner with our scouting and CAP organizations to provide Parkville a multi-generation demonstration of patriotism and commitment to the next 241 years. Our committee that prepares for the parade will need help. In August we ll look at an end-of-summer fest featuring a whole hog and a chance to bring all the groups we host in the post together. We will need some volunteers to assist with the planning of this event. We re on the road to great things this next event year. I m thankful for the opportunity to continue serving with all of you.
