BIRTHDAY GREETINGS FOR VETERANS
Harvey C. Noone Legion Family has launched this new program, in partnership with the Newman Riga Library. It grew out our "Valentines for Veterans" program, where our community donated 1,272 Valentines for the Veterans at the Batavia VA. We decided to expand the program to ensure no veteran at the Batavia VA has a birthday without receiving Birthday Greetings !!!
Signed birthday cards - whether homemade by children, custom made by talented adults, or store bought are again being collected at the Newman Riga Library. And, feel free to add a note of thanks or a special note conveying your wishes for a most Happy Birthday.
There is no deadline. As cards arrive, they are picked up by a Legion Family Member and dropped off at the VA in Batavia. Pictured below is a small sample of the beautiful, creative and heartwarming cards that have already been delivered.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PARTICIPATION !!!
FINALLY, IT IS SPRING !!!
And, the daffodils planted by Legion Family Members and Cub Scout Pack 156 are in full bloom.
What better way to usher in spring than with these beautiful flowers that form a "Living Field of Honor" for all veterans?
Since our charter in 1924 our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.
It will be as simple as clicking to become a Sponsor or Booster Button. Details coming soon.
100% of the monies raised are given back to the community. Help us to continue sponsoring Scholarships for our children; give aid and assistance to our local needy Veterans, and their families. Help us to continue to support financially worthy community programs and projects.
