American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Greetings Legion Family

Hello 2018 and goodbye 2017.  I hope this new year starts off as well as last year ended.

We had a very good December at the Post.  We gave out food baskets,  made sure

veterans at the local nursing homes received gifts, 30 plus kids participated in Clothe-a-

Child and 125-150 kids saw Santa and had pizza as well as receiving gifts.


I apologize for any event we had on the calendar that was posted and did not happen.

Most of these events are done by volunteers and sometimes plans are not met.


We will be celebrating New Years Eve on Sunday night with a band and a pitch in

dinner which should start at 6pm. $5 per person or a dish for the pitch in.  We will be

CLOSED New Years Day.


Some things are changed with our food nights.  Spaghetti will be on the 3rd Tuesday

only.  Taco night will be on the 2nd Monday only.  Everything else remains the same

for now.  Jack’s Red beans and rice served on January 28th.


We will be starting Bar Bingo again on Thursday night 7-9pm, under new supervision. 

This will be a month by month event depending on number of players.


January 27th there will be e wedding for Mr and Mrs Greg Allen with a band featuring

BJ Hayes after on the bar side.


ALR plans the Polar Bear Run for Jan 1, meeting at 12n at the VFW.

Also at their meeting on the 10th there will be a run-off for Assistant  Run Coordinator.


For future events the Auxiliary is planning a Couples Dinner on February 10th in honor

of Valentines Day.  Make your plans early.


Hope all had a great Christmas and as always thanks to all those who help support the
