A Message from Post Commander, Bill Wilkinson
"American Legion Post 10, this is Bill, how may I help you?"
As I look back at this years events, there was a lot that went on. Do you remember or did you participate in any of them?
January we installed new officers.
February was the Four Chaplains Remembrance. The Post meeting, kids passed out Valentines.
March was the St. Patrick’s dinner and the Chamber of Commerce Service Awards.
April was Easter Dinner and also Legion Family Day.
May - Memorial Day and the Military Spouses Day Dinner.
June was the Department Convention and Flag Day ceremony.
July was the Car Show and the Linn County Fair.
August was our picnic and the Arts and Air Festival.
September we Remembered 9/11 at the courthouse. We helped Mr. David Russell, Pearl Harbor survivor, celebrate his 103rd birthday. The ALR held their Ride for the Alive too.
October Volunteers from Red Canoe came over and did cleanups both inside and outside. The robotics team had their SWARM fundraiser. The Post swore in a new Commander.
November again had the ALA Holiday Sparkle Bazaar. There was a Military wedding and Thanksgiving dinner.
December will find the Post 10 Family giving Christmas gifts to children, remembering Pearl Harbor and having Christmas dinner.
This coming year is shaping up to be even more exciting! There are planning committees already working on the 9/11 Remembrance and the Veterans Day Parade for 2024!
Happy Holidays, stay safe, call a friend and hope to see you at the Post very soon.
Thank you to all the volunteers that made this year Great!
Commander, Albany American Legion Post 10
