December 2020/January 2021 


October/November 2020

Members are slowly coming back to the legion from the COVID emergency. I would like to thank all the Volunteer Members, Auxiliary, SAL, Riders, and Cruisers for all their hard work during our shut down. Monday game nights are picking up and the Queen will start October 5, 2020 and Bingo will start on October 7, 2020.  We plan on having food from 4:00 till 6:00, or when we run out on game nights. Please show your card and sign in all guests at the bar as we protect our Legion bar license. Please remember the staff is volunteering at this time.

We now have House Committees.  Bill Schmitt and Don Maclean are in charge of the kitchen and bar. Mike McGeachy and Howard Hone are in charge of the building. Tom Gesiorski is in charge of the grounds. They are working on getting our Family involved. Please let them know of anything you would like to help with.  

We are looking for more Duty Officers. If you are interested, please see Pete Skentzos, or the office.

Our most recent blood drive was on September 11 and was a success. Thank you to all who gave – we had 24 pints given, and 3 deferrals. Our next blood drive is November 9, from 10:00 to 4:00. Please consider donating – we’d love to get over 20 pints again.
