COMMANDER'S MESSAGE 2023 - 2024
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
