A Message from the Commander:

Post 152 Legion Family,

 

Out of an abundance of caution, the E board has voted to close the post effective immediately.  We will reopen Friday, August 27th, at 11:00am.  

 

While there have only been a handful of reports of positive COVID tests related to the initial exposure, we were recently made aware of a few other individuals that were in the post Friday and Saturday nights who are COVID positive.  Due to the increased risk of exposure to our members, we decided to close.

 

If you have been at the post over the past week or so, we highly recommend you get a COVID test and isolate until you get your results, even if you have received the vaccine (a few of the positive cases had received the vaccine).  We hate to close the post down, but the health and safety of all of our family members is of the utmost importance.

 

Yours in service,

 

Michael "Tank" Sherman

Commander

A Message From the Commander

Post 152 Legion family,

 

Last night, the E board was notified of a positive COVID test by one of our members.  That member was at the post last Thursday night and Saturday during the Poker Run, and as far as we are aware, those are the only times in the past week and a half they were there.  Out of an abundance of caution, we decided to cancel the dinner, bingo, and general membership meeting this week.

 

Since last night, 3 other members who were exposed have tested positive, including myself.  As far as we are aware, these are the only positive cases.  At this time, it appears to be an isolated exposure, but if you were at the post at the times listed above, I strongly recommend you get tested, even if you have received the vaccine. 

 

At this time, there is no plan to close the post, but we will continue to keep you updated if things change.

 

Yours in service,

 

Michael "Tank" Sherman

Commander

Department recognized Riders Chapter 152 or their hugely successful Virtual Ride. Check out the email:

 

From: Jennifer Cooper <jcooper@floridalegion.org>

Subject: Virtual Unity Ride - FINAL District Totals

 

Good morning,

 

First, let me start off by saying CONGRATULATIONS to each and every one of you for making our very first Virtual Unity Ride a HUGE success! The coronavirus pandemic forced us into canceling an annual event that we normally look forward to. However, in true Florida Legion Rider fashion, you took on the challenge and still provided the necessary support to our veterans! 

 

Not only were we able to collectively raise over $60,000 for PROJECT VetRelief's Suicide Prevention Initiative, but we had more participants over the entire state riding for one cause... ending veteran suicide! In fact, all but 2 Districts had Riders represented. 

 

Now, for what you all have been waiting for... The 15th District is this year's winner of the coveted District Trophy!! The trophy will be awarded during the Fall Conference in November, so we hope to see a large representation from the District. A SPECIAL shout out goes to Chapter 152 in District 15 for bringing in over $10,000!! What an outstanding accomplishment that you achieved, especially during uncertain times! 

 

Below is the final leader board with the breakdown of results.

COOL PRIZES

We will be sending out emails to everyone who earned incentives from their fundraising efforts. Since there will not be a Department Convention this year, we are hoping that the Legion Riders District Chairmen will be able to help us distribute everyone's items. This will help us save on shipping costs. Items will come pre-packaged, so you won't have to assemble them or figure out who gets what items. More information will be sent later.

 

SURVEY

Additionally, we are putting together a Survey to send out to everyone who participated to get feedback on our first virtual event. We are looking to incorporate something similar in future rides so that more people can participate. Please encourage everyone to fill it out so that we can make next year's event even better!

 

Again, THANK YOU for all that you continue to do for the American Legion and the veteran community. You guys truly are making a HUGE impact and we are grateful for your support and dedication!
