Regular Volunteer Assistance
Cooksville Branch #582 is primarily volunteer-driven with the functional operation and continued success of our club being highly dependent on the persons listed here and others, to be identified.

The commitment of your elected executive (listed elsewhere) and this continually growing group of volunteers is essentially the lifeblood of our organization to keep it strong and vibrant.

This list remains a ‘work-in-progress’ and we certainly encourage and welcome any additions/corrections to the list.

Incidentally, the volunteer “pay” scale is very good…offering comradery and enjoyment, as well as a meaningful sense of fulfillment toward both noble and worthy causes.

NOTE: This is intended as a complimentary listing that salutes our volunteers generally. For reasons of privacy, added personal detail has intentionally not been included.  This listing concept was therefore strongly supported and motion-approved by the Br. #582 General Membership.

NOTE: The many names assisting during the Poppy Campaign are not individually listed here, as every single member of the Legion makes a specific and personal pledge as part of their RCL membership induction service, to assist the Poppy Campaign. Therefore, directly participating in the annual Poppy Campaign is the personal commitment responsibility of each member.

Please remember the Poppy Campaign is our major source of funds that help fulfill our primary mandate to assist veterans & their families.

We sincerely thank ALL volunteers, and new additions are more than welcome to join us for any of the various programs and branch activities.

Your efforts to help us serve others will not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Thank you all once again!!
