Roger B. Chaffee Post 154 July/August 2019 Newsletter Greetings to fellow supporters of our American Veterans, Each year, the Wyoming American Legion Post 154 holds a golf tournament to support local veterans who have served our country in countless ways. For many years, this event has successfully raised funds to support veterans with many services. Among the many activities that Post 154 supports, we provide resources and time to conduct “Operation Injured Soldiers.” This operation treats heroes to a Division I college football tailgate and football game experience. One recent hero was a WWII veteran who had never been to a college football game. He was so moved emotionally, he needed tissues and exclaimed he had never had “so much fun.” The golf tournament makes it possible to provide our heroes with experiences showing them how thankful we are for their service and sacrifice. The tournament is successful because of YOU, the participants and generous sponsors. Please consider taking part in this outing as a volunteer, participant, or a sponsor. The tournament will be held at The Pines Golf Club, 5050 Byron Center SW, Wyoming, MI on Saturday, August 24, 2019. Registration will take place between 8:00 AM and 9:15 AM with tee off at 9:30 AM. The tournament is open to anyone wishing to lend a helping hand to an American Veteran. Please consider supporting our veterans in one of the following ways: 1. Sponsoring a hole ($100.00) 2. Sponsoring a veteran ($75.00) 3. Sponsoring one of two beverage carts ($200.00) 4. Entering a four-person team ($300.00) 5. Providing a donation (any amount) 6. Providing a gift for tournament prizes (any amount), including rounds of golf/golf related items If you, your company or business would be interested in sponsoring or participating in any of these options, please mail donations to or contact us at American Legion Post 154, 2327 Byron Center Ave., Wyoming, MI 49519 or call and ask to speak to a member of our Golf Tournament Committee at (616) 538-4443.
