Detachment Commander Richard Strothman

 

 dc12.jpg Hello Team Kansas,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and found lots of Easter eggs.
A lot of Posts had Easter Egg hunts for the kids, I hope yours was one. Again, it's time for District Conventions. I hope to see many old and
new faces at your Districts. I am planning on going to 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 7th District Conventions.

I wish I didn't have to keep on everyone about membership, but with only 1.5 months till Detachment Convention, we are at nearly 9% short of 100%. Please don't let Team Kansas fall short of another All Time High. After all your hard work on membership it would be disappointing not to extend our streak of All Time High’s.


It's also time to get our Consolidated Squadron Reports filled out. These forms are for recording the number of volunteer hours and monies donated for our Veterans and charities
alike to present to our Congressional representatives in Washington, DC. All Squadrons have something they can report. So get on these and get them into Wes Wills, so our Detachment numbers can be added to the S.A.L. numbers nationwide rolled up by National. Be safe in your travels to your District Conventions and I look forward to seeing you there.
Until next month,

Richard Strothman

Commander, Detachment of Kansas
