I want to depart from the usual format to give important new information. Next week and there after I will try to keep you appraised of any new developments. This is from our Adjuant of Post 142 John Hamilton on behalf of post Commander Steve Swinford.
Based on Department Commander Ron Gott’s decision, all Department Headquarters meetings are cancelled until further notice. Reasons for the cancellations are recent updates from the American Legion National Organization, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention along with State and local officials regarding the Coronavirus COVID-9.
Commander Gott has also recommended cancelling all upcoming meetings to include Spring District Convention/Meetings. The Department Executive Committee (DEC) has voted to cancel the upcoming District 1A/1B Spring Convention/Meetings scheduled for Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Based on these previous decisions, the Post Executive Committee (PEC) Post 142 in Hominy has decided to cancel the next two regular Post meetings on Thursday, March 19, 2020 and Thursday, April 2, 2020. The next SAL meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 2, 2020 has also been cancelled.
In addition, the Monday morning breakfasts are cancelled until after the April 16th meeting unless a decision is made to cancel further meetings.
