Your Legion Leadership team is here to serve you. Hopefully, you are enjoying the many activities of our Post Units, as well as the small improvements we continue to make to our facilities.
If you have an idea, or a suggestion, reach out to a Legion officer. We’d love to hear your idea. Or perhaps you will reach out just to volunteer your help, or to say thanks. If you don’t know who to contact, ask your bartender. They will connect you with the right person.
Be proud of your Post. There’s a lot to like. Let’s finish 2018 at a new high, and continue to soar in 2019.
