My apologies for not keeping this page updated. We just finished a
successful 2018 year and there's quite a bit to be proud of as a Post. Our big
point of pride is our new Sons of The American Legion Squadron. They
celebrated their first full year of existence in November and have built up
quite a bit of momentum with their accomplishments. They have written
and adopted their Constitution & By-Laws. They have already begun
planning, organizing, and running a few breakfast fund-raisers to raise
funds for their charities. While doing all this they have also added four
more new members to their unit!
Our Post finished the year fiscally sound even with our increased
emphasis on preventative maintenance and repair. We have spent quite a bit
less this year and our Post physically is in the best shape its been in decades.
Our Friday evening Happy Hours are well attended and allow our members
to talk with each other and catch up.
Our Commemorative Brick program has slowed down quite a bit since
its inception but it still allowed us to donate $2,000 to our charities this year.
Last year we were able to send one high school boy to Boys State and it looks
like we might have two going in 2019. We've never had any high school girls
attend Girls State but we will have one going in 2019. For Veterans Day our
Post was invited to participate in 8 different events throughout the week
from invitations from various organizations. Membership is always
something every volunteer organization worries about to keep the Post
healthy. With our high visibility in the community and participation at
events we seem to bump into veterans all over. Many have talked with our
Post members at these events and then join our Post.
If you are a veteran in our Yorktown area and not a member of our
Post, come down and try us on for size. New faces bring new ideas and
quickly become great friends with our merry bunch of Legionnaires!
