President's Corner

I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits as we usher in the promise of a brand-new year. It is an absolute honor to step into the role of President and serve alongside such a dedicated and esteemed group of individuals. I’d like to personally thank all those who will not be continuing on the executive: Jeff our past president, Gerald our poppy chair, and Chris our Sgt-at-Arms. The amount of time and dedication put towards our legion does not go unnoticed.


As we head into the 75th Anniversary of our legion together, I am filled with a profound sense of excitement and optimism for what the future holds for our legion. Our organization has a rich history of service and commitment to our community, and I am eager to continue and build upon this legacy in the coming year.


I believe that 2024 will be a year of great opportunity and growth for us. With your unwavering support and the collective passion that defines our Legion, we can accomplish incredible things. Together, we will strive to make a positive impact on the lives of our veterans, their families, and the community at large.


I am committed to fostering an inclusive and collaborative environment where every member's voice is heard and valued. Your input and ideas are crucial to our success, and I encourage you to share them as we work together to shape the future of our Legion.


In the months ahead, we have exciting plans for events, programs, and initiatives that will not only strengthen our bonds as a Legion but also enhance our ability to make a difference. Whether it's community outreach, fundraising efforts, or supporting our veterans, there are countless ways for us to come together and make a meaningful impact.


I look forward to meeting and working closely with each of you. If you have any thoughts, suggestions, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly. Your feedback is invaluable, and I am here to serve you to the best of my abilities.


Let's make 2024 a year to remember, filled with shared accomplishments, camaraderie, and a deepened sense of purpose. Thank you for your continued dedication to the Devon Legion.
