Happy Memorial Day! As we get ready to kick off the summer, let's remember that Memorial Day is more than just cookouts, opening pools, and the start of summer. It's a time to reflect on those who paid the ultimate price for defending our freedom and to honor all the veterans who have since passed away. Our Memorial Day ceremony will occur on Monday, May 27th, starting at 9 am. We invite you to join us as we pay tribute to our past veterans. 

We have several upcoming events at our post. This year, we'll be hosting a Member Appreciation event on Saturday, June 22nd, featuring music by Kaleidoscope. Food will be provided starting at 1 pm, with music from 1-5 pm.  Please continue visiting our website, Facebook page, or bulletin board for more information about other events. 

As we approach the end of the Legion year, I want to express my gratitude for the support from our Officers and Members. Please remember that little can be accomplished without help from our members. I want to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to help the Post. To all the units of the post: SAL, ALR, and the Auxiliary, your service to the post and the community has been an incredible part of the success of our post and my leadership.  Thank you! 

I am looking forward to the start of the new Legion year with great things to come. Membership continues to progress as we reach our goals. The American Legion, and this Post, only exist because of our members. So, if you have yet to renew, please go ahead and submit your payment. You can do it online or drop off the payment in the Lounge. If you know someone eligible, bring them in, sign them up, and show them the benefits of being a Legion Member. I want to welcome our new members and those who transferred in.

I am excited to see everyone around the post!

God Bless You all!
