Post Renovation Update
Good News and Bad News
The good news! We are extremely pleased to announce the renovation of Post 5 will continue starting next week. This portion of the renovation will include updated plumbing, HVAC, electrical, a new look to our main dining room, an expanded patio area and a new kitchen. We are extremely thankful for our generous donors and our many members and supporters for this opportunity to ensure a viable home for future veterans in this area.
The Bad News! To facilitate this renovation the main dining hall and kitchen area of the post will be closed for approximately 4 to 5 months. While this is an unavoidable situation, I want to assure you that the Club Room and Annex will remain open and operate as usual. In addition, the post will strive to continue with as many activities as possible and explore new opportunities to serve our membership during this time. Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome.
We greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time and I feel confident that I can assure you that the project will be worth the wait. In the meantime, please continue to support your post. Contributions to the Wall of Honor are dedicated to renovation costs. Display a brick in your name, the name of a loved one or your business.

The American Legion was chartered and incorporated by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization devoted to mutual helpfulness. It is the nation’s largest veterans service organization, committed to mentoring youth and sponsorship of wholesome programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow servicemembers and veterans.
Hundreds of local American Legion programs and activities strengthen the nation one community at a time. American Legion Baseball is one of the nation’s most successful amateur athletic programs, educating young people about the importance of sportsmanship, citizenship and fitness. The Heroes to Hometowns program connects local Legionnaires with recovering wounded warriors and their families, providing a variety of support activities. The Legion raises millions of dollars in donations at the local, state and national levels to help veterans and their families and to provide college scholarship opportunities.
The American Legion is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization with great political influence perpetuated by its grass-roots involvement in the legislation process from local districts to Capitol Hill. Legionnaires’ sense of obligation to community, state and nation drives an honest advocacy for veterans in Washington. The Legion stands behind the issues most important to the nation's veterans community, backed by resolutions passed by volunteer leadership.
The American Legion’s success depends entirely on active membership, participation and volunteerism. The organization belongs to the people it serves and the communities in which it thrives.
