We are doing a three-day event which will start on Friday May 22nd at 7 p.m. in the Canteen with a social gathering to show the post new Facelift. Saturday May 23rd, we have vendors coming in starting at 7:30 till 9:00 a.m. to set up booths. We will host an open house for our local Community from 9 a.m. till 5:30 p.m. or dusk. We will then have entertainment with a dance that night. Sunday May 24th, we will start gathering at noon here at the post, at 2 p.m. we will start our Formal dinner with Guest keynote speaker. This is a tie or bolo tie and Suit or Jacket event. Uniforms are acceptable with a tie. There will be RSVP’s available in the Canteen starting February 15thuntil April 15th to pick your dinner Items. The only way this will be a successful event is with the fixing up of the post. We need this to be an all hands venture, please donate what you are able.
The other venture we are attempting to get accomplished is reestablishing a Scouting Troop here at the post if you have any children or know of any that are looking for a scout troop let us know and we will pass the information on to our Scout Master so that he can get the pertinent information. We can also use merit badge instructors. This is an adult and kids needed to get the troop going strong. Scout meetings are every Tuesday at 7 p.m.
We also have our own web site that can be accessed for more information at www.AmericanLegionPost223.org This is updated bi-weekly or if something changes so please bookmark this page and you can access the calendar and keep track of the current events.
