From the Commander

Gilly Stoffle, our kitchen Commander and AMVET 1st Vice has officially retired. This master of the skillet has served meals for our Veterans and the community for decades. Enjoy retirement Gilly, your Legion Family truly thanks you for everything.

The 10th Cav 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion is one of the most amazing group of soldiers I have ever been associated with. The leadership of this organization can be keenly seen by the devotion and focus of their soldiers. From the Cream Cheese Festival, the Food Pantry to the restoration of our Burrito Shack, painting the Post, and taking down American Flags in the Village, these soldiers rock! The Veterans of Lewis County, and our Community, are deeply grateful for what they have done for us.

Our State Commander will be visiting on October 9th! Let’s show our support by having lunch with him at the Croghan Legion. Sign up at the Post. I will be traveling with the State Commander, as 5th District Commander, from 4-9 October.

Next year is our 100th Anniversary! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a part of history. Business sponsorships will range from $1,000 to $2,500, it will include placement in our 100th Anniversary Book and a commemorative plaque in our building.

We will be celebrating this historic event on March 27th with a visit from our National Commander. Join us for this historic event by purchasing tickets at the Legion.

The gun raffle at the post for Operation 2nd Chance was a huge success. All proceeds go towards taking wounded warriors from across the country deer and turkey hunting right here in Lewis County.
