Commander's Corner


Welcome to our first installment of Commander's Corner for Legion Year 2023-2024. 

It’s been a rough couple of months for us here at the Post, and it ended with the untimely death of our bartender, Susan Mathern.  We hosted her family in A Home Going Celebration on Sunday, August 13th

Membership! Membership! Membership!  Our goal from the district for the 23-24 year is 416 members.  Our first cut off date will be September 13th.  On that date we need to have reached 50%.  You should have received a renewal notice by mail, but you can also just come into the Post and one of the officers will renew your membership on the spot.

We have been busy recently, hosting the 6th District Meeting and the Dept. of  GA Organizational Meeting on back to back weekends, on the 5th and 12th of August.  Thanks to everyone for their support, especially Tonya, the kitchen staff, and the bartenders.  Great Job!
