Almost time for the High School Constitutional
Saturday, January 18, right here at Post 29 marks the start of a journey that could culminate in over $23,000.00 in cash and scholarships for an area high schooler. Some of the best and brightest students from throughout the area will be competing in the 83rd annual American Legion High School Oratorical Speech Contest. You are strongly encouraged to attend, not only to support the students, but to be treated to an amazing display of patriotism and oratorical excellence. You will leave even prouder to be an American. The program starts at 2 pm. The Legion Auxiliary will be providing refreshments. Please contact Roy Lantz, email@example.com or 770-906-6175 with any questions.
