From the Commander

We now stand at 710 family members and continue to grow. My goal for 2020 is to reach 800. The greater our strength the more we can do for our Veterans and our community.

You do have “the time” to be a member. We recognize that not everyone can attend a meeting or volunteer. All we ask is that you simply join and hopefully in time you can work us into your schedule. Family and job come first.

Our Legion Family gives back. During just June and July our Family gave $7,350 back to our community. The numbers are staggering.

Our largest Legion Family fundraiser of the year is the Cream Cheese Festival. Please volunteer on September 21st and help us. Select any time frame from 10AM- 6PM and we will fit you in wherever you feel comfortable. Call 376-3712 to sign up!

Our Parking lot has been freshly sealed and striped. This Legion owned, community shared lot supports our library, firehouse, county, and village. Most recently we have been experiencing some overflow from the downtown area due to business growth. We’d also like to thank the village for plowing during the winter. Our new marquis (sign) is on order and should be in by September 15th! Thank you to everyone who helped us in this campaign. Lewis County for 2018-2019 ranked Number One in the State for membership! And 5th District (covering 6 counties and 98 legions) is now Number One in the State as well. It has been a privilege and honor to serve as the 5th District Commander for 2018-2019. I am now the Co Chairman of the Legislative Committee for the State. National is considering me for a National Appointment in October at the National Convention.

If you have a concern, issue or suggestion please attend a meeting. This includes Legionnaires, Auxiliary, and Sons. We will feed you, buy you a drink and keep the meeting under one hour (90% of the time).
