Is your son or daughter in the military? Your parent? Your friend? If so, these people who have bravely fought for our country should be commemorated, and Lowville Academy's Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) has the perfect way to do that. In conjunction with the Graphics Communication class are designing a veteran banner that will hang on the Village of Lowville poles with photos of veterans that have made an impact on the lives of the people in Lowville.

From the Commander

The historic cupola located on the top front of our building is rapidly deteriorating. Our hope is to restore it, but it’s going to be expensive. Please donate to our SOB (Save our Building) fund and write “cupola” in the remarks section. As a part of this, we have voted to invest a significant amount of money into our building this spring, from new roofing, painting trim, additional landscaping and more.

This is my favorite time of the year. Auxiliary Fish Fry’s start February 28th. As a hardcore Foodie, and not as Commander, I really mean it when I say we have the best Fish Fry in Northern New York. Many of you know I have a Food Blog on Facebook with over 11,000 followers (Eating in Upstate New York and Beyond). I love our Fish Fry.

We have a limited number of Lowville American Legion Official sweatshirts and camo baseball caps at the post. We also have the official shirt of Task Force Phoenix (our adopted unit deployed in Afghanistan). Show your support by purchasing one today.

We are looking for a long hard wood conference table for our new conference room. We hope to find something that will complement our 150-year-old building.

Who doesn’t love tacos? “Mexican Mondays” Only $1 for a loaded taco (Beef or Chicken). Top it off with a $1.50 margarita or $2.25 Corona. 1-9 PM.

We are the (self-proclaimed) Headquarters of the XFL football league New York Guardians in Upstate New York. Throughout the season we will get ALL of the XFL games. Come watch this exciting and new professional football league.

It’s the strength of our Post 162, you, that has made this happen. I have been appointed by the American Legion National Commander to serve on the Children and Youth National Committee. This in addition to my duties on the State Legislative Committee (I am vice chairman). These positions will take me to DC, Albany and Indianapolis. It’s going to be a busy year, but I am proud to serve the Legion and carry the message of the Post 162 American Legion Family to new levels. We really have the family part figured out.

Commander Lee Hinkleman
