FROM THE COMMANDER:

Fellow Legionnaires,

Greetings and hope this finds you and your families continuing to be healthy and doing well in the midst of the current COVID-19 Pandemic. The numbers in Tennessee keep creeping higher and it is a scary time and we all must take appropriate precautions. Therefore I have consulted with the Executive Committee on 4 August. I asked and it was unanimously agreed upon to cancel our 11 August meeting. There remains nothing urgent on the agenda that could not wait until our September meeting.

Your Executive Committee met on 4 July, via a Zoom internet conference and revised an agenda for our next regularly scheduled meeting. As cited above, this month’s meeting is cancelled. We continue exploring options for when we can get together and are soliciting donations to keep us in a position to support next years’ ball teams, Boys and Girls State, the Oratorical, Scouts, veterans and their families in need, etc. Our only income, so far for this year is the Annual Flag Event. We still plan on holding the September Picnic at Charlie Daniels Park. Our plans for Christmas Dinner continue as I work with the Rutland Place Catering Staff. We have until two weeks prior to make a final decision or look at other options...

Mask or Face Covering as COVID-19 Cases Continues rising

 
Mt. Juliet Police Support Wearing a Mask or Face Covering as COVID-19 Cases Continue to rise, Officers Will Continue to Educate & Provide Masks to the Community

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – The Mt. Juliet Police Department supports and encourages everyone to wear a mask or face covering as COVID-19 cases continue to rise. As an alternative to issuing a citation to those not in compliance with the Wilson County mask mandate, officers will continue to educate and provide masks to community members. The mask mandate order, issued by Wilson County Mayor Hutto, is active at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 19, 2020. “I want to see full compliance with Mayor Hutto’s order so we can contain the virus as soon as possible,” stated Police Chief James Hambrick. “From the onset of this pandemic, we have focused on educating our community about the importance of wearing a mask and taking personal safety precautions. We have obtained substantial compliance without charging business owners or community members. This model will continue, and we will issue face masks to those in need rather than issuing a citation.” Details on Wilson County’s Mask Mandate: https://mjpdnews.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Wilson-County-Press-Release-Mask-Mandate-7_17_2020.pdf
