I’m Mike Seiler, the new Commander of American Legion Post 282.
Our post has been undergoing some restructuring, which has been both challenging and exciting.
I believe that we are emerging from this period stronger and more together than ever before.
We now have a Lower Bar Manager, Roslyn Brower, who is also arranging for our Friday entertainment. Our Upper Banquet Hall Bar Manager, Kim Quaschnick, is managing special beverage requests and set-ups for reserved functions as well as scheduling upstairs bartenders for special events.
Our new Banquet Hall Manager is Ken McCormack, who may be reached for reservations at (619) 469-6064.
We currently have no one assigned as our Food Manager, but Tony Sodl has volunteered to take on the task for now and is also publishing a calendar that includes food and entertainment details for the Legion. Lee Gill, Captain of VFW O.K. Ingram Ship 1774, is assisting him with this effort, as needed.
All operational decisions have been, and will continue to be, made by the Board of Directors. Meeting minutes that detail such decisions are posted on our Post 282 website www.lamesapost282.org. The decisions are collective and have not been made, nor will they be made, by any single Officer or Board member unless an emergent situation is at hand as defined in the Bylaws.
Note that all members of the American Legion are welcome to attend the Executive Board meeting at 5 p.m. on the 4th Monday of the month (except December when we are “dark”). This is immediately before our Regular Business meeting at 6 p.m.
If you wish to assist with any of our cooking or maintenance efforts, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I may be reached by phone at (619) 540-1528 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, dues payments may be made in person at the lower Veteran’s Club bar or mailed to Post 282, 8118 University Ave, La Mesa, CA 91942-5565. American Legion annual dues amount is $50.00; the annual dues amount for Sons of the American Legion is $40.00 ($25.00 if under 21).
