Spring Cleaning 04.10.2021

Saturday April 10th will be Spring Cleaning Day at Post 29, weather permitting.

We welcome members from all the Family Units to come to the post from 8am-12pm to volunteer to clean, organize, and refresh our Legion Home.

We will be posting various projects, and taking volunteers. Each project will have a person in charge. If you have an idea for a project, or something you want to work on, please reach out to JVC Russ Wood. A signup sheet is posted in the Social Quarters.

We know you love our Legion Home. This is the perfect way to give back to the post that gives you so much. Take pride in our post and our building, and help us give the place a good refresh.

Vaccines

Getting the majority of adults vaccinated against COVID is a key in opening up our economy and removing various restrictions on commerce.

As of 3/15, most adults in GA are now eligible for vaccination.  For anyone newly eligible and looking to make appointments, here are a few sites that may be helpful:

Let’s Ruck 3.28.2021

What’s a Ruck? Just a walk. Many folks will add a backpack. Crazy folks fill the backpack with heavy weights.

Why Ruck? Because walking is good for us. Especially during a pandemic, when so many activities have been banned or cancelled, we can always walk.

When: Sunday March 28th. If there’s enough interest, we’ll ruck on the last Sunday of every month. We’ll depart at 11am, and we should return to the post by noon.

Where: Meet at Post 29. For our first ruck, we’ll simply walk to the National Cemetery, about a mile from the post. We’ll stroll through the cemetery and pay homage to those buried there, then we’ll hike back to the post. Easy. Even your kids and grandkids can do it. Weather permitting.

Wait, why again? Because we can. Because we want to always challenge ourselves. You will get in shape. Walking improves your physical and mental health. If we ruck as a group, we build camaraderie and community. Let’s enjoy the outdoors, and some sunshine.

Plaque of Remembrance

The Lenten season is upon us. This is generally considered a time of sacrifice and reflection. 

Would you please consider reflecting upon, and honoring your loved ones who have served this great country, by listing their name, rank and branch of service on the Plaque of Honor hanging on the left wall as you enter the Legion social quarters. 


Simply ask your bartenders or servers for the “Plaque of Honor” form and fill it out. A small fee of $25.00 will enshrine your loved one for ever. 
Thank you for your kind consideration.
