As we enter a new Legion

Jones. This past June the

Post thanks him for his
efforts as Commander.

was agreed and voted on at
a Post meeting to modify
the “Legion Year” by
holding meetings each

and January. Taking a

February (when the snow

addition to the clubhouse, a
pizza warming rack is now
behind the bar! Our bar
steward Ken Robarge
procured the warmer for the
post and we will be serving
piping hot pizza by the slice
during our peak hours.
On several occasions over the
past months our faithful
members have volunteered
their skills, time and the
materials to improve our post.
Last Spring SAL member Ken
Halsdorf led a team of dozens
of Sons, Aux and Legionnaires
to repair the water damage to
our banquet hall. The hall
now shines and its beautiful
appearance is testament to
what great members we have.
Huge thanks to everyone who
helped make it happen!
Additionally Legion member
Gordy Hinman recently
donated materials and
personally replaced the worn
and cracked bar foot rail with
beautifully hand tooled and
stained Ash wood – Salute to
Gordy for an incredible job!

Our Post NEEDS you! Become involved and attend a membership meeting!

In July the Post lost a
valued member and good
friend with the passing of
Kenneth “Mert” Courbat.
A familiar face at the post.
Mert was a life member of
the American Legion, a
Korean War hero and
holder of the Bronze Star,
our nation’s fourth highest
decoration for gallantry.
Mert’s passing will leave a
void in our Legion family.
He will be truly missed.
Continuing on the subject
of Mert’s passing, it’s also
appropriate for the Post to
recognize the magnificent
effort from our combined
Legion, Auxiliary and
Son’s who made Mert’s
memorial service both
memorable and special.
Every step of the memorial
spoke of our Post’s
excellence; from the solid
show at calling hours, to

the crisp Color Guard and
coordinated Firing Party,
ending with the massive
effort in feeding a packed
house following the funeral
