We can be proud of our Post’s achievements and supporting the 4 Pillars of the American Legion.  But we face many challenges in the coming year: 

1.  Increase membership - since 2017 membership has decreased from 171 members to 105 members in 2023. 

2. Increase active participation in Post activities - since 2017 members attending Legion meetings,

Legion events such as Memorial, Patriot. & Veteran events has decreased significantly.

3.  Percentage of members paying their annual dues before a Legion deadline of February 1 of the Legion calendar year has been historically below 60 percent.

WHY - this is your Post!  Let’s be Proud of Colin Hyde Post 172.  Wear your Legion Cap & Baseball Cap (Legion Logo, Post 172 embroidered).  Tell people who we are “Veterans who have served/serving this country, the U.S.A!  Invite them to our activities & events.  Tell people of the organizations we sponsor and community events we participate in.  Encourage your family to participate in the Auxiliary and S.A.L.  We must be VISIBLE!


Gary Sakuma, Commander
