Greetings Legionnaires:

     Thank you to all the Riders and Veterans who supported Veteranís Day events throughout the community. On November 9th the Riders and Veterans visited Thomas Jefferson High School and participated in the annual Veteranís Day Events. Its important kids understand who real Veterans are and they not gain their impression from Hollywood movies. Thank you for giving back to the community Bill Allan, Donna Allan, Bob Armitage, Tom Bodner, Mike Dudenas, Ed Harmon, Larry Jageman, Lee Phillips, Margie Phillips and Mark Smith. And Thanks to Debbie Michalski for opening up Post 712 early and sending our Vetís off with donuts and hot coffee on what was a cold and rainy morning.
