Video Proof

The website, Eblast, and Newsletter team does our best to share all of our events with you. But the addition of a professional photographer to our team has taken our game to a new level.

Check out this short video of some of our activities in 2019.

Post 29 Centennial – Update

Save the date – September 27, 28, and 29 will be our Centennial Celebration.

We have events planned for all three days.

Friday the 27th we’ll have our normal Friday activities, plus some goodies. We will move the Social Quarters up to the main hall all day Friday to give us more room. PLEASE NOTE, NO CARS MAY BE LEFT OVERNIGHT. WE WILL TOW THEM SO THAT WE CAN SETUP FOR THE SATURDAY BLOCK PARTY.

Saturday the 28th from noon until 5PM we’ll have a block party in our parking lot. We will have bands, food, drinks, and some entertainment for kids. This will be free to attend (food and some drinks will be free). This is a family-friendly event. We aren’t advertising it, but it is open to the public. Please invite your neighbors, friends, and extended families. The Social Quarters will remain open, but with limited service. The primary activities, food, drinks, bathrooms, etc., will be outside.

Sunday the 29th is our birthday. We’ll have a formal meeting for dignitaries and special guests in the main hall. The Social Quarters will open late on Sunday (around 3PM). Members are welcome to attend, but please dress appropriately (no shorts, t-shirts).

Calling All History Buffs

The Centennial Committee is doing a research project on The Post’s original Charter members and Past Post Commanders.
Information on Charter members Claude W. Hayes and J.H. Griffith is needed.  They were charter member 99 years ago so we are looking for where they were buried or if anybody was related that might have pictures.
We are also looking for the following Past Post 29 Commanders (with years they served as Commander)
Dr. P.L. Knott (1922-23), Thomas C. Hames (1925),  Theo C. Harris (1926)  John H. Crouch (1927)  C.H. Wilkinson (1930-31)
Roger Wheeler (1943),  C. Russ Mills  (1949)  John C. Pope Jr.  (1951)  H. Doyce Lanbert (1965)  Wesley Kemp Dickerson (1982-84)  Anyone with information or pictures on these men would be greatly appreciated.
Contact Past Post Commander Bill Beaudin at 770-919-7109 or email legionbloodhound@bellsouth.net with any information.

Horace Orr Centennial Remembrance

The Centennial Committee Team 100 of Horace Orr Post 20, Inc. will host a Remembrance Ceremony at the grave of our namesake Sgt. William Horace Orr. Orr was the first person from Marietta killed in WWI. He was killed in action October 14, 1918 while leading a charge on a machine gun nest in the Battle of Argonne Forest in France. Our POW/MIA Honor Guard will be on hand to participate in the ceremony at Mars Hill Cemetery in Acworth on October 14, 2018 at 11AM.
