Veterans Day - Thank You!
Thank you to all of the American Legion Post 2 and American Legion Auxiliary Unit 2 members who contributed time to the Veterans Day Stew Feed! It was wonderful to see so many of our members out helping prep and cook the stew on Tuesday. And it was also great to see so many serving on Wednesday. A wonderful crowd of over 300 people came through the building that day and enjoyed a meal, a concert, and a short Veterans Day program.
Thank you to all of you for such an outstanding day! It was yet another very successful Veterans Day for American Legion Post 2!
WE NEED YOUR HELP - Building Projects
We are desperately in need of help around the building at Post 2. An endless list of tasks is building and growing and your aid is needed in the form of "sweat equity". Cleaning and maintenance in and around the building is essential and we are calling on you to help us out if possible.
Most tasks are routine and do not take too much time. There are a limited number of large projects that also need to be taken care of as well. Any help you can contribute would be appreciated very much.
Contact Christopher Hanson at (701) 306-7567 or Tommy Tolman at (701) 237-4013 to volunteer today.
Boys and Girls State Testimonials
Thank you to the youth who were in attendance this past Tuesday at our combined Post and Auxiliary Meeting who came to share stories and testimonials about their experiences at Boys and Girl State this past summer. While each child had a different story, what they shared was enthusiasm for what they experienced, learned, and took away from the opportunity to attend such an outstanding program. Thank you so much for your stories! We hope that you will share those same stories with the other students at your high schools!
