From the Commander

With our phenomenal growth we provide employment opportunities that benefits our community. Our Legion now employs 9 people!

Our soldiers in Afghanistan have received their Christmas shipment. Surprisingly it only took 8 days to arrive in country! A huge thank you to our members, the community, the Girl Scouts and students at Lowville Academy for making this happen!

Your Legion is unique by the fact we operate as one organization comprised of Legionnaires, Auxiliary and Sons. If the Auxiliary or Sons want to host an event it does not need to go through the Legionnaire’s, they just have to check the make sure the date is available. This is clearly our strength. We really are a family!

Amy Wolfe has taken the lead and is now our Museum Curator. If you have a donation, suggestion or recommendation it needs to be cleared by her. Our policy is if you donate something, the Post assumes ownership. We simply don’t want ancestors down the road pulling any items from our museum.

Please. When entering the post if the steps need shoveling or salt, please simply do it. We are a family and have no one on our paid staff that does this.

Our bartender’s rock. They raised over $4,000 to cover the cost of our new dishwasher behind the bar! Thank you to our patrons as well who participated in numerous raffles.

Many thanks to David Schulz and Chayse Griffin for having the expertise to allow us, the only member Sports Bar in Lewis County, to watch the Lowville Raiders at the Carrier Dome in the Championship games. Throughout the year, when possible, we will be televising all local sports at the Legion. We have gone so far to have someone use their smart phone and share it on FB live to watch the game! Their battery died at one point, and they had to borrow another phone! No matter what, we will make it happen.
