Compliance with Wisconsin’s Executive Order


The Wausau American Legion Post 10 will comply with the Wisconsin’s Executive Order to wear face masks when indoors with others, at all locations other than our private home.  All members will be required to wear a face mask at all indoor activities, including small Committee meetings with some exceptions as clarified and defined in the order.

The Post 10 Executive Officers appreciate your cooperation to maximize the State’s effort to by wearing your mask. We, as officers of the Post, are responsible for enforcement of the Order… so… your support is really appreciated. 

We all appreciate your cooperation to maximize the State’s effort to reduce the spread of Covid -19 by wearing your mask. We are all responsible for following the order. 

 By maintaining our social distance, and wearing our mask, we believe that we can conduct our business and improve our service to our fellow Veterans.

 

As We Start to Open!!!!

 
As we start to open up...You do You, I'll do me.
That's what America's about.
None of us have the same circumstances (high risk children/family member
or a business not doing so well, etc.).
Let's all stay in our own lanes and keep the judgment down as we begin to reopen.
No one should feel pressured either way.
 
As governors are trying to figure out how to ease back into normal, please remember:
 
Some people don’t agree with the state opening...that’s okay.
Some people are still planning to stay home...that’s okay.
Some are still afraid of getting the virus...that’s okay.
Some are relieved to go back to work
knowing they may not lose their business or home...that’s okay.
Some are thankful they can finally have a surgery they have put off...that’s okay.
Some will be able to attend interviews after weeks without a job...that’s okay.
Some will wear masks for weeks...that’s okay.
Some people will go out to get their hair or nails done...that’s okay.
The point is, everyone has different viewpoints/feelings and that’s okay.
 
We each have a different story.
If you need to stay home, stay home.
If you need to go out, just respect others when in public.
Don’t judge fellow humans because you’re not in their story.
We all think differently than we did months ago.
So, remember, Be Kind.
