Members who are absent or ill are followed up by the officers.
Excellent work is being done on visits. All reports showed that the

Praesidium is planning a function for auxiliaries in the spring.
Comments made at the last visitation have been addressed: recruiting has

Members do not seem to be aware of the Legion custom of holding all
comments until a report is completed. The very friendly atmosphere of this
praesidium allows for comments at other times in the meeting which are not

should be the main characteristic of a Legion meeting. Extraneous comments
should be kept for Other Business or for after the Concluding Prayers.
