Preamble
 Important Information
 Bullet Covid 19 Update
Bullet Department’s response to question – Are Posts allowed
  to have Memorial Day Ceremonies?
  As long as the governor's state of emergency and executive
  orders are in place they need to be followed. It's suggested you
  contact your Local Officials and see what they say. I know a Post
  who did this. They are allowed to have an Honor Guard and Firing
  Squad. Small ceremony, no politicians, no speeches. Quick
  ceremony. A lot of modified variations this year. I also know of a
  Post who asked their Local Officials about having a small ceremony
  in front of the Post and were told no. Again, we all would like to
  conduct proper ceremonies, but please check with your Local
  Officials and adhere to their response.
  John Baker
  Department Adjutant

Bullet Judging for Americanism Awards
  Per Department Americanism Committee Chairman Howarth,
  judging for Americanism Awards will be held at a place and time
  yet to be determined, once group gatherings have been
  approved.
  If you previously sent in an entry, please email Tammie to confirm
  receipt. If you had an entry that you planned on sending to HQ,
  please do so. Once a date and location has been determined, you
  can still hand carry your entry to be judged.
  Thank you.

Bullet American Legion Leadership College - CANCELED

  The 2020 session of the New Jersey American Legion Leadership
  College has been canceled, due to the ongoing efforts to contain
  the COVID-19 Pandemic, as well as the Governor’s restrictions on
  events, crowds and social distancing. It is unlikely that this event
  will be rescheduled for this year as the American Legion calendar,
  however we will make every attempt to reschedule. Thank you all
  for your interest, and we look forward to seeing you in 2021.
