FROM THE COMMANDER
The month of March is special to me. The American Legion’s birthday is March 15, which Post 62 will celebrate on
Saturday, March 13. Ross County American Legion Post 62 was formed in 1919, the same year the national
organization was chartered by Congress. As an American Legion Post 62 brat, a former Marine and as a
Legionnaire myself, I appreciate all that our Post has meant to Veterans over the years. I want that spirit to
continue, not just this year but well into the future. Please join me at our birthday party on
March 13 and commit yourself to our future in serving America’s Veterans. – John McDonald,
Commander

Won’t be long before I’ll have to be turning the 2009 membership cards back to American Legion Dept. of Ohio.
Those of you that haven’t paid your 2010 dues will be delinquent for 2009 dues, after Membership Cards are sent
back. I’ve posted a list behind the bar and on the bulletin board of those who haven’t paid for 2009. Check it out
and if you see someone you know, let them know. If you have any change in the last year I’ll make changes in the
                                               st
