Brothers, Friends, and Family,

Greetings to everyone.

The Order had a-great and historic PA State Convention in Harrisburg, PA this past August.

We have to thank President Dan Dailey, his family and his committee for an outstanding convention and a fun time for all. Mike Werley and Larry Craley should be congratulated for putting together the mechanics of the sessions and meetings.

Very constructive sessions were held at the convention. It was agreed that last year's work by all of the committees to combine the Order as the PATRIOTIC ORDER SONS OF AMERICA was beneficial for the productivity of the Convention. I was honored, along with PA State President Dailey, and all the Delegates to sign the paperwork officially joining the Order together.

We move forward, and have Trustees for the National Order. District Presidents were announced for the Order. We must all work together to make this unification work and to streamline the Order, without cutting any services at our office.

Brothers, we must support all our Camps whenever they hold a Banquet, a Luncheon or any activity and assist where they might need help.

Please keep up the good work in getting new Brothers to join the Order. Some Camps have already added 5 or more new members and received the bonus. Remember, you have until my Convention in September of 2017 to earn the $500.00 bonus if you get 5 or more men to

join. They must be obligated by my Convention in September, 2017.

Speaking of Conventions, the National Convention will again be held at the Best Western

Premier Eden Resort, 222 Eden Road, Lancaster, PA 17601 on Thursday, September 21, 2017

(Meet and Greet); Friday, September 22 (Sessions, dinner with entertainment that evening);

Saturday, September 23 (Sessions and Banquet that evening with entertainment); and Sunday morning, September 24 (Brunch) for anyone that wants to attend. More details will follow after all the Holidays.

Remember that November 11 is Veterans Day and all our Camps hold activities to honor the Veterans on that day. Plan to participate!

May God Bless the United States of America!

Respectfully submitted,

Stan Sarnocinski, Jr.

National President
