 2nd District Commander’s column

It is time for me to turn over the reins of Commander to Jennifer Kafka of Post #89 in Blue Earth. This will take place at change-over after the Department Convention in Rochester in July. I want to wish Jennifer well and know she will do a good job as Commander for year 2014-2015. She is also the FIRST Lady Commander the District has had. As we can see, history is always in the making.


Membership for my year as been very good. I did not make the 95.00% I was hoping
for, however, we still had a good year. The District ended up with 93.86% which is 524 short of goal. With the 84 posts in the District, we ended up with 33 posts at goal with 23 posts exceeding goal with 56 new members. Membership is always easy to get and it takes everyone to go out and do their part for their posts. The TOP post is Earl Christopherson Post #274 in Milroy with 112.24%. Congratulations to Commander Don Pals and the Membership for this achievement. Commander Don is going to be the District Vice Commander for Redwood and Brown Counties for this coming year.


At the District Convention held on June 7th, I presented to Vice Commander Ryan Hill the “Top Banana Award”. This was something I started this year in the District without the Vice Commander's knowledge. It is a brass banana paperweight given to the Vice Commander with the highest percentage which was 95.30%. Ryan asked me permission to make it a “traveling award” in the future which I granted.


In closing, I want to thank all my officers for their great work and support and all the posts in the District for their continued support of The American Legion and all it's programs.
