American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Greetings Legion Family,

March has come and gone and its mushroom hunting season in Southern Indiana. Good

luck to those who go into the woods.

Things happening at the Post this month are April 13, SAL will be selling Grilled Tender-

loins at the City Park as a fund raiser event.

April 20 Easter Egg Hunt 11AM. Free hot dogs, chips, pop for the kids with a chance to win

1 of 2 free bunnies and cages.

Last month SAL raised $1169.00 for Clothe a Child at their road block (GOOD JOB).

The Post raised $2580.00 for Boy’s and Girl’s State and are looking for more junior boys 

and girls to send. If anyone interested, please contact the Post as soon as possible.

The most important thing happening this month is the nominations for officers. Please

attend our meeting the second Monday April 8 at 7 PM. I encourage anyone to sign up 

for the position they are interested in. All positions with the exception of 4 of 6 board 

members are open. Nominations are also being taken by SAL and Auxiliary.

Balance of mortgage is just a little over $113 K as the end of March. Hopefully we can get

to $103 by July, which will mean we have paid half of the mortgage down in 4 years of 

what was a 17 year mortgage.

As always thanks to those who volunteer to help make the Post work, without them I’m 

not sure the Post would survive.
