From the Commander:
Greetings ;
  Here we are coming into April. We are looking for Officers to fill several empty positions in the Post. We will be voting on Officers in the May Meeting on May 1st at 6:00 pm.
Remember we have a Guest speaker coming April 22 at 1:00 pm. Lt. Mark Holmquist of the Maine State Police will be presenting his experience of becoming a Tomb Guard at Arlington at the age of 19. He will also be explaining the regiment of a Tomb Guard. Refreshments will be on hand and a Quilt will be presented to Mark following His talk. Lets all give Him a Big welcome and attendance.
If I can be of help to anyone please call me at 563-2239 or email me at
For God and Country, Wayne Johnston, Cdr

Adjutants Desk:
Post 1 Rockland Legionaries Current paid membership is  90.45%, We need 30 to reach 100% Lets get those memberships in .
We have several post officer positions that we desperately need to fill. Our officers and the elected House committee members determine What, When and How things happen within the Post. With so few attending the Meetings it creates Hardships in our Home. At times regular business cannot be handled as not enough House members are in attendance. This is a great handicap to this Post and YOU as a Member. More Minds Make Better Decisions!

BLOOD DRIVE - Apr. 26th 1:00-6:00 PM.
