Summer is almost over and school will be starting soon. This seems like a good time to remind everyone about the various American Legion sponsored scholarship opportunities. The American Legion offers a number of scholarships and other resources to assist young people in their pursuit of higher education. There are opportunities for everyone, including kin of wartime veterans and participants in Legion programs. They can be reviewed by clicking on “Legion Links” and then Scholarships. Be sure to check both the state and the national websites for the complete listings.
Recently we said goodbye to Robert T. Derwin, one of our most respected and beloved members, He served as Adjutant for many years, and was responsible for getting the Tank that sits near our memorial, and getting our American Legion Baseball program off the ground. He was arguably the best Adjutant our post has ever had. He will be missed by all who knew him.
As you know by now, we have been making major changes to our post home. The expansion of the canteen is now complete and is presently being painted. Projects still in the works are remodeling the restrooms to make them handicap accessible, and a deck for our outdoor enthusiasts. We are waiting for final approval of the drawings before we can start. Stop in and see our progress whenever you get the chance.
Also, if you are into Halloween, there will be another Haunted House during October this year. They have added a Haunted Trail to the exhibit. A snack bar will be available also. Happy Halloween!
That’s all I have for now, here’s wishing you all the best of health.
