FROM THE EDITOR AND 1ST VICE COMMANDER
THIS WILL BE MY LAST NEWSLETTER FOR POST87
After 4 commanders, and 7 years as editor of the newsletter and web page. I find it impossible to work with commander Paul Williams. Our interpretation of the bi-laws is different.
THE REASON IS AT AN EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE MEETING:
The Commander, Paul Williams walk across the room and screamed at me,” he was god, and was not to have his powers questioned”.
All I said,” I would like to also interview new bar managers, and he did not have the power to hire anyone.
I would like to thank everyone who voted for me.
I will also be resigning as 1st Vice- Commander and news editor.
I believe the commander does not have the power to hire and set wages. That power belongs to the executive committee.
FROM BY-LAWS POST 87AZ Dated June 7th, 2015
ARTICLE 111 – Post Executive Committee
Section 2. The Post Executive Committee shall hire such employees as may be necessary; shall authorize and approve all expenditures; and shall require adequate bonds from all persons having the custody of Post funds; shall hear the reports of Post Committee Chairs; and generally, shall have charge of, and be responsible for, the management of the affairs of the Post.
Section 3. The Commander can spend up to two hundred fifty dollars ($250) without preauthorization from the Executive Committee. Special projects can be exempt from this section by vote of the Post membership.
Also the District Commander, Mark Crough does not seem to know our by-laws when he said, “ the District is not interested in petty thing at the Post level”.
I did not know the By-laws are petty.
Greetings American Legion Family;
Received no newsletter article form the commander, Paul Williams for the last 3 months.
AUGUST CHAPLAIN’S CORNER
August is here and so is the heat. We all need to keep an eye out on our friends and fellow veterans to ensure the survive the blistering heat. Check to make sure they are staying hydrated and cool; carry plenty of water with you and help where you can.
Whether water takes form as a waterfall, an ocean, a hot tub, a shower, a lake, a river, or a cool drink, it is the most refreshing substance that exists. Water cleanses and heals, flows and balances. It is essential to life on earth.
Let God’s love, charity, and wisdom guide you through your life. Amen
Richard Moore, Chaplain
Commander and board;
I probable will not make the E-board or regular meeting this upcoming week due to recovering from gastrointestinal surgery. I had expected to be recovered enough to make the meetings but my recovery has been slower than expected due to complications.

SONS OF AMERICAN LEGION
MEETING 3rd SATURDAY OF THE MONTH at 10: AM
I've noticed that there's an animosity towards are group. In the past they did not participate nor step up. I am a newbie and wish to participate and see us rival the legionnaires. Tis true that apathy and support in the group was lacking. I like our legion. I want to be involved. It is only as strong as the members. I would ask your help and information to help me better understand. I am more than willing to sit and talk about improving ourselves and encourage the SALs to participate and make us more than a joke. Thank you, Ron McLaughlin current chaplain of SAL Post 87.
