Sons of the American Legion cancel Detachment of Minnesota Convention

The Sons of the American Legion Detachment of Minnesota Executive Committee decided on April 10 to cancel the Detachment Convention for 2020.

The convention had been planned to happen June 26-27 at Legionville School Safety Patrol Camp near Brainerd. The resolution says holding it “would be in conflict with the imposed restrictions set by state and federal authorities and therefore, place our members at an unnecessary health, safety and medical risk.”

All officers and committee members will remain in their duties for another year, with the next election to take place at the 2021 Detachment Convention. If any step down for various reasons, a replacement can be appointed at the Fall Conference.
