Happy Spring Everyone! It’s almost the end of another successful year of aiding and Assisting our Veterans and community. These next two months are some of our busiest throughout the year. I want to thank everyone ahead of time for all the hard work coming up and throughout the year. I close on my third year as President; I would not have been able to do it without all active members and volunteers. I truly appreciate everyone’s dedication and look forward for next year.
Thank you to the SAL and everyone that helped with the Easter Egg hunt. The kids really enjoyed it.
May is Poppy month. Poppies are available for distribution. Please see Sue at the bar to help. The money donated for poppies goes directly to our Veterans and Children and Youth. Every penny counts!
We will need marchers of any age for the Parade. Please meet at Spry School at 9am on Memorial Day. As always please wear Red, White, and Blue.
Our Legion Family Picnic will be 6/20 @ 6pm; please bring a dish to pass. Let’s celebrate another great year with all our Legion family.
Have a safe happy summer! See everyone in September
