2nd Division Commander's Message

October 27, 2014

Of course I've seen many of you at various meetings, but have not effectively communicated to all the leadership.  Let's fix that.

As you may know, we are not "tearing it up" on membership.  Our District Commanders are working at it.  We know that.

We also know that the 22nd and the 8th will have District revitalization's at the end of January.  That should certainly help.

Our original Membership Chair was George Collins from Midlothian.  Commander Sparks called on George to serve on Department Membership Committee and agreed that I should replace him at Division.  I'm happy to let you know that Past Division Commander John Palasota has agreed to serve in that capacity.

As most of you know, and I ask Jerry to put on the website, our Division Convention will be in Bryan, TX (Post 159) on May 30 and 31, 2015.

Oratorical Chair Milton Chatham has rescheduled Division Oratorical Competition on January 25, 2015, Dorie E. Miller Post 817, 3430 W. Cardinal Dr., Beaumont, 1:00 p.m.  Contestants, along with an escort, should be there no later than 12:15 p.m.  Most of you may know that Department Oratorical will be on February 16 in Denton.

I managed to make it to conventions in the 2nd, 6th, 7th, 11th Districts.  22nd does not have a Fall Convention however I visited their DEC meeting.  I guess I owe Joey in the 8th.  I was in Florida that weekend.

If you have something you feel should go on the website, send it to Jerry.  He uses good judgement and if he is not sure he will check.

Likewise you may use the hubmaster system.  Division hubmaster Tom Parry will be happy to help out.

ALWAYS feel free to call me, email me, text me, send a smoke signal, etc. if you have anything.

For God and Country
