In the middle of September, Mr. Lober of Apex Engineering submitted our proposal for our new building to New Castle County. Last week Mr. Lober informed me that the sign for a “minor land development” was erected at the site. This is one step closer to our new post home. Stay tuned.



 We voted last night, March 13,2012 to proceed with the engineering.
March 21, 2012, papers were signed to start the engineering on the new building.

Today the Building Committee had a conference with our lawyer Michael Scali in preparation of his meeting with Wilmington and NCC. He wanted us to take some steps to correct what we have the ability to concerning the underground contamination. We have already taken steps suggested by the Ten Bears Engineering firm, and will have them come in to take another air sampling test to see what effect our actions have on the contaminant level. These improvements seek to restrict outside air from entering the building from the alley between us and the dry cleaners building, which is already an acceptable level for the state standards. We are trying to actually gain a better level then even over acceptable. It could take the state another month to issue formal opinions on this issue, and our lawyer plans to urge Wilmington to accept the state's opinion at the meeting, and schedule to settlement based on NCC's findings. After this whole ordeal is finished, I should be eligible for a commendation for patience. If received, I will bestow that to our members

Victor M Callahan,

       You are receiving this notice to inform you, as members in good standing of Joseph B Stahl Post 30, of the present situation. In these dangerous days of 2020, most of us have quarantined in our homes, me included. However, our attorney, Michael Scali has been busy.

        I am happy to announce that we are scheduled to complete settlement with Wilmington University on Monday April 27th. I have already submitted 24 files of signed, notarized, and witnessed documents, and Wilmington University is doing the same today.

On Monday, I will be signing, scanning, and submitting the final two documents to execute the sale of our property to Wilmington, subject to all the agreements we have been presented and found acceptable. I have invited your officers to be present to witness this event for posterity, requesting all have masks, gloves, and properly distance ourselves. Unfortunately, I am prevented from inviting the entire membership.

Also, I have asked our Second Vice, Sal Vaccarino, to set up a zoom meeting to enable members and officers who will not be present to witness this historical event in our Post’s evolution:

We literally have thousands of members to thank for us getting to this point, from you and I back to Commander Jim Wrightson in 1950 when our original charter was sought as a Post of the American Legion. He held meetings to plan and prepare for that charter. They purchased our existing building for $3,156, and so it went. This has involved many different programs worked on year after year, with positive contributions from kind and generous members like ourselves, who believed in what Stahl could do. And do well we have, to our community, our State, and our Legion.

I wish to thank you all for your support to Stahl Post, and for allowing me as your Commander to usher Stahl Post forward in Stahl Post’s future commitment to our community and Veterans. God bless you all, God bless Stahl, and God bless America.
