Roger B. Chaffee Post 154

Greetings:

Greetings, It doesn’t seem possible, but another year has receded into history. I remember the first time I entered Post 154. It was November of 2011. I had just retired from the Coast Guard in Baltimore and having been a Legion member for many years was eager to find a Post I could transfer into. I walked into the Post that first afternoon and was happily greeted by one of our bartenders. She went out of her way to introduce me to a few of our “regular” customers. It wasn’t long before I felt welcome and I decided then and there that the Roger B. Chaffee Post would have a new member... me. Over the past dozen years our Post has had good times and sad times. We withstood a deadly global pandemic. Through all those years our Post has been a place of support and assistance for our members and their families. I am confident that Post 154 is ready for the next twelve years. However, if we are to continue to serve Wyoming’s veterans, we need all of our members to get a little more active. Attendance at Legion meetings is down. I’m sure that the weather has been a factor, but I urge my fellow Legionnaires to come to a meeting now and then. The Legion meets at 7 pm on the 1st Wednesday of every month except in July and August. Meetings usually run about 45 minutes. Attire is casual, but wear your Legion cap if you have one. I hope to see you on February 7th.

 PPS: The American Legion Dept. of Michigan Winter Conference is in Flint from February 9-11. This a good place to learn more about our Legion. Check the Michigan Legionnaire for more details.

And one more thing....remember your partner on Valentines Day.
