American Legion Post 642 (Stevens Creek) Cupertino, California

Commanders Corner

Greetings, as we are quickly wrapping up this American Legion year 2021-22, I wanted to say a few words about what our Post has been able to accomplish this past year. Even with the Covid shutdowns and difficulties imposed by the various local and state regulations, we were successful in supporting our community in many ways. Our 2021 Wreaths Across America held on 18 December was a success and the monies that we earned have been spent on supporting Veterans, such as the Fisher House and Defenders Lodge at the Palo Alto VA, the California Veterans Home in Yountville to name a few.  Additionally we sponsored 3 young men to attend this years Boy's State in late June.  Our Post held our annual picnic in July and Christmas/Holiday dinner in December. Members were also able to attend the Moffett History Museum field trip in March.

This Post is your Post and I ask each of the members to let us know what activities you would like us to participate in and what outings you would like to see the Post set up and sponsor in the future.  As I bid farewell after my two years as Commander I want to thank those of you who renewed your membership once again, those officers who carried the load in executing their duties in the positions they served in.  We have our installation of incoming officers scheduled for Monday 6 June at our Post.  Please attend if you can and please support our new incoming Commander Vince Guinnane and the other officers that were elected to serve their one year terms beginning on 1 July.

As always please continue to recruit so that we can bring in new members to our Post and those of you interested in joining please reach out to me and I can answer any questions you may have and or assist you in joining the American Legion and our Post.

Duty First!
