Detachment Commander Michael Saindon

 

Greetings Team Kansas,

 

I am so honored to have been elected the Sons of The American Legion, Detachment of Kansas Commander for 2017-2018. I would like to congratulate our outgoing Commander for 2016-2017 Commander Wallsmith and his officers for having an outstanding year. Also, I would like to thank the Detachment, Districts and Squadrons that have supported me in the past. I look forward to working with everyone in the upcoming year. We still have a lot of work to do on our membership in order to obtain our 39th consecutive year of growth. We are the only Detachment that has that many years of consecutive growth. Team Kansas…we still need 313 renewals or new members to make our 100% goal. It's time to make personal contact with every member that has not renewed and ask them to renew. Weneed all hands on deck to make this happen. Together let’s insure Commander Wallsmith’s year ends with Kansas achieving 100%. There is still time and collectively we can make it happen… but we have to start now with the last big push on membership. Again, I am looking forward to this upcoming year, seeing many old friends and making many new friends.Thank you for all you do!

Important Notice

 

To all Detachment of Kansas Squadrons:

The By Laws of the Detachment of Kansas were recently changed:

The Squadrons of Kansas are no longer required to return their unused membership cards in order to receive their new membership cards. The new cards will be mailed out when they are received from National Headquarters.   This year they will be starting to mail them out from Topeka on Monday June 13, 2016. It is suggested that each Squadron have some established way of accounting for their membership cards but it is not a requirement. 

 The SALute is being distributed strictly electronicly, and its very possible that this will be the way it is distributed in the future. If you want your Squadron to receive a copy please send us a working e-mail for your squadron. This SALute was put together by  Don Culver, tell us what you think. We will consider all suggestions. E-mail your Squadrons e-mail address or your coments to us, our e-mails are listed in the August SALute.
