American Legion Post 250


Commander's Corner

Dear Legion Family


Well August has come and gone and has been a good month for the Post. All bills have

been paid and we didn’t have to dip into our line of credit or ask our groups for money to

help get us thru the summer.


We had a successful road block, raised $1355.00 for Cloth a Child, which brings us up 

to approximately $4400.00 so far this year.


I want to thank all those who help on the mortgage. We were able to knock off another 

$1500 towards the principle and owe a little over $128k to having everything paid off.


Next month will be our busiest of the year as it is Persimmon Festival time. We will be 

having our normal Friday night meals with the exception of NO Fish as that is during 

Festival. Bingo and Texas Hold’em will continue as normal. SAL will be serving food at

the Bicentennial Celebration at Ace Hardware on the 14th.


Festival week we will be serving Brats and Sausages on the Back deck Tuesday thru 

Friday from 5pm to 9pm, Saturday will be until we run out of meat. Extra items will be 

available some nights. This year we will be having 2 bands for you to enjoy, “Ugly Early” 

and” Gran Torino” one in the lounge and one in the dining room. $5 cover charge per 

person. Starts at 8 and 9 pm.


Good news! Chicken is returning in October. The 1st Saturday of each month we will 

resume serving a Chicken meal from 4-7:30pm. Add it to your calendar.
