The American Legion Post 29 is hosting a Fish Fry, sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion at Post 29. The event is open to the public and the proceeds go to support veterans charities. Members SHOULD sign up in the Social Quarters to ensure a plate is reserved for them.
When – Friday February 28th from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Where : Upstairs Hall, American Legion Post 29 , 921 Gresham Ave. NE , Marietta, Ga. 30060. You may eat in the main hall or take a plate home. Food will not be in the Social Quarters due to the Friday Band.
The SAL is holding its general meeting on Tues. Feb 25th at 6:30pm after the Queen of Hearts. We will be meeting upstairs in the small hall. This will be an important meeting to discuss potential activities, establish a budget and to discuss charitable giving. We were the largest post in the State last year, and we would like to continue this rise in membership by also becoming a better post in doing so. Your Commander and E-Board need your support as we plan, implement activities and participate in legion activities. We need your input into these things- so please try to participate and attend our meetings.
The 2019-2020 Legion Year is over four months complete. It is time to renew your membership to the Legion, SAL, Auxiliary, and ALR. Memberships, and post privileges, will lapse in January if not renewed.

The Post is planning a trip to Murphy, NC to have an afternoon of fun, gambling, and fellowship. It is open to all post members. The trip will be Thursday September 19th – we will leave the post promptly at 9AM and depart from Murphy around 4:30 pm. This is not a legion sponsored event, but an event put together by Milton Dickson. We plan on having two vans that will hold 15 people each. The cost of the trip will be approximately $20 per person to cover gas, and insurance. No smoking on the buses, but we will make stops on the road. Each participant will be given $20 in slot machine credits to play on the machines. It will be based on first come, first served.
Contact Milton Dickson 678-429-9359 for reservations.
To all members( including duel members and Jr. members)
of the Squadron 29 of the American Legion – Marietta
Good morning! Do to the fact that the National Sons of
the American Legion have raised our membership costs – we at Post 29 in
Marietta must do the same. Effective immediately our dues for the year
2019-2020 will go from $20.00 to $25.00. This is the first increase
in our dues in over 15 years. Our duel member and Jr. member costs will
remain the same at $10.00 per member.
Sr. Vice Commander Randy Wright and Adjutant Tom Rieger have
the new cards to handle renewal and new members. Please try to take
advantage of the early bird special – a free breakfast in Oct. – so renew and
sign up early to take advantage of this special offer.
Last year we had 72 new SAL members of Post 29 – Let’s all
try to continue to recruit folks that qualify to be SAL members and who are
interested in helping veterans and helping the entire American Legion Post 29
family become stronger, better and more viable in the community!
If you have questions about the increase in dues or any
activities / issues with the SAL do not hesitate to give me a call. I
look forward to being of service to each of you and please know that it is a
honor for me to serve as your Commander.
