 GUY C. PARLETT POST 7, INC. 

An important message from the Commander of Post 7:

From the August, 2020 Newsletter Commander's Corner

COVID-19 Impact: Good News! Your post has re-opened in accordance with State guidelines. So, don your mask and come visit while social distancing. We have been serving a limited menu and hope to expand as we gradually reopen to “normal” conditions. Because of the uncertainty that comes with a global pandemic, we are not able to publish a regular menu or resume our normal events---yet!

However, there are a few important announcements that I want to bring to your attention so we are providing this shortened newsletter to get the word to all our members that are not on Facebook or able to visit our website.

Elections: Although the National meeting in Ocean City is cancelled for 2020, we still need to hold our annual elections and to vote on our new by-laws. Nominations for officers AND voting will be conducted at our August General Membership Meeting on August 4, 2020 at 7pm. It is unusual to do nominations and voting at the same meeting but this is yet another impact of COVID-19. Please plan on attending while wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.

Baseball: Through Post 7's initiative, we have organized a non-Legion league this summer. We play a reduced schedule of 19 games with six local teams. High school baseball was cancelled this year so, we wanted to provide an opportunity for our seniors to showcase their talents to college scouts in hopes of gaining a scholarship. The home games are played at Joe Cannon Stadium in Glen Burnie. A schedule is posted on our website. Our Admirals are Winners!

Crab Feast: The Crab Feast scheduled for September 19, 2020 is cancelled. We care about our members and want you all to be here for our feast in 2021!

For God and Country

Post 7 will reopen in phases according to state and county guidelines. Here are our 19 Covid 19 actions required to keep us safe:

-Starting on June 4, hours will be 4-7 PM

-The kitchen will not be open.  ALL food will be prepared on the grill outside.

-Limited, disposable paper menu includes burgers, dogs, wings, ribs, even pizza etc., No American Fries!

-Members and guests wear masks while placing orders at the bar prior to proceeding directly to the grove.  All food and drink will be consumed outside.

-Members must maintain 6-foot distances.  Families can sit together at a picnic table.

-All employees will wear masks

-Only disposable dinner ware will be used.

-Each table will be sanitized between patrons

-Prices will be in even amount to minimize providing change

-No games of chance.  This means Bingo, Pulltabs, Queen of Hearts, and machines.  No pool playing.

-Curbside dinning and carry out provided

-Members encouraged to bring their own hand sanitizers

-Members must heed of signage in the Post

-Random no-touch temperatures will be taken.

-No inside seating at the bar or lounge

-All areas will be sanitized by employees within 30-minutes of closing

Please THINK of your fellow member(s), many of whom have compromised immune systems.  Many posts will not survive this pandemic.  Violations could cause the Post to shut down and be fined.  We dare not jeopardize our future.  After all, we have a wonderful, CHEERS-like environment and provide many important community outreach services.  More guidance later.

Commander,

Jason O'Neil

Fellow members please use caution and protect your health at all times. Our Post 7 will only open when it is legal to do so. We are ready to accommodate social distancing. During the Pandemic, your management and volunteers have completed a 60-item checklist to completely sanitize the building and complete painting and renovation projects. You will see the difference when you come back.

As you can imagine, many events have been cancelled including Boys and Girl’s State, Memorial Day at the Cemetery, and dozens of other events. Our elections will be held on one day in August. The Department convention has been postponed until late September with a one-day event in Baltimore.

The Legion Baseball season has been cancelled just like the High School season. This is really bad for the senior players who need statistics and videos for college scouts to award scholarships. Therefore, our current planning to have a short 16-game unofficial schedule with local teams beginning in late June. There will be no tournaments. In this way the 6 seniors on our team get some much needed and deserved exposure.

Before the virus outbreak, we submitted a grant application to the State. The prolonged process will most likely dead-end due to the huge cost of the pandemic. However, your post remains financially solvent and should survive this crisis. As soon as we get official guidance on re-opening, we will post again here and on our website. In the meantime, please stay safe. We want ALL of you to enjoy our NEW environment in a future filled with fellowship and community service.

For God and Country,

Jason
