Post 501 Brat Fest, Craft Supplies Sale, and Garage Sale at Legion Post 501

Brat Fest at MM 8-5-2017.jpg

Sales at Post 501 on October 21:
    CRAFT SUPPLIES SALE:  
9:00 am - 4:00 pm - Supplies for crafting and sewing, beads, material, crochet thread, patterns, flowers (silk), storage boxes (small) and lots of other items.
    GARAGE SALE: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm - lots of miscellaneous items

    Our brat fest is scheduled for Saturday, October 21, 2017, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm at Post 501, 105 Dempsey Road, Madison.   We have updated our supply list and should now will have sufficient brats, hot dogs, and buns.  However, we would certainly be happy if more folks showed up to see if we can exceed our previous sales.  The full brat meal at $5 includes chips (just don't take the Cheetos - one of our volunteers needs those to get through the day :) ) and a soft drink or water.
     Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends.  If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.
    We offer Johnsonville brats, full hot dog meals at $3, with or without buns, condiments, soda or water, and a wide selection of chips. 
    Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats and hot dogs.
     Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  If you can provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  We do need the additional support due to the popularity of this brat fest location.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats.
     Next Brat Fest is scheduled for October 28, 2017, at Metro Market.  Check the calendar for dates when confirmed.

It's the HOLIDAY SEASON monthly meeting - you don't want to miss this one !

            item. Homemade salads and desserts always in favor.

     The December Post 501 Business meeting will be a special Christmas oriented, extraordinary evening.  All Sons of the American Legion (SAL) members are invited and strongly encouraged to attend.  The Post 501 Auxiliary also will be in attendance.
      There will be a welcoming program, and some shared ideas of programs for the Post 501 SAL members in the next 2017 year.  Maybe a Fall Saturday afternoon football/cribbage/euchre gathering in the clubhouse, with free snacks and libations.
      These are some ideas which may come to fruition, if the interest is there.  In addition, for those who don't especially like to attend business meetings, there is no reason why an SAL member can't participate in the fun stuff.  Keep up with either the Post monthly Newsletter and/or this website for further activities.
      The Post 501 meetings are always conducted on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, at the Post 501 Clubhouse, 105 Dempsey Road, here in Madison. Meeting begins at 7:00 pm, usually finishing about an hour. An informal gathering follows for those who wish to socialize with fellow veterans.  Stories of past military experiences, and sometimes even tall tales/lies, are shared.
     Business of the American Legion Severson-Cairns Post #501 is conducted at this meeting. Plans are made for future services for veterans and families; fundraising is a continuous critical need.

Come, raise a toast to our country and the part you and others played to keep it free and safe! As you know FREEDOM is not free. It costs dearly!  SAL members are also always invited in attendance.  Your presence is especially desired.

     What goes on here at the Legion is all about you and stays at the legion!  It really helps  all veterans, who have served, and for those continuing to serve.

Legion Post 501 Members / Business Meeting

  Always conducted on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, at Post 501 Clubhouse, 105 Dempsey Road, here in Madison. Meeting begins at 7:00 pm, u-u-u-usually finishing within an hour. An informal hour follows for those who wish to socialize with fellow veterans.
     Business of the American Legion Severson-Cairns Post #501 is conducted at this meeting. Plans are made for future services for veterans and families; fundraising is a continuous critical need.
     Plan on attending. Our meetings are open to any Legionnaire past or present, who have an interest in just what goes on in "post active" and "reserve service". Come and see veterans who, like yourself have marched, floated or flown on active duty for at least one day or more, during times of conflict. Served in or near combat zones, in support activities or have a book of questions that need to be answered. We want to hear about you, the part you played....... all the details from those who were really there.  Hidden and amazing.  Come, raise a toast to our country and the part you and others played to keep it free and safe! As you know FREEDOM is not free. It costs dearly!
     What goes on here at the Legion is all about you and stays at the legion!  It really helps  all.
     Next meeting scheduled:  Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

Post 501 Members / Business Meeting

  Always conducted on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, at Post 501 Clubhouse, 105 Dempsey Road, here in Madison. Meeting begins at 7:00 pm, u-u-u-usually finishing within an hour. An informal hour follows for those who wish to socialize with fellow veterans.
     Business of the American Legion Severson-Cairns Post #501 is conducted at this meeting. Plans are made for future services for veterans and families; fundraising is a continuous critical need.
     Plan on attending. Our meetings are open to any Legionnaire past or present, who have an interest in just what goes on in "post active" and "reserve service". Come and see veterans who, like yourself have marched, floated or flown on active duty for at least one day or more, during times of conflict. Served in or near combat zones, in support activities or have a book of questions that need to be answered. We want to hear about you, the part you played....... all the details from those who were really there.  Hidden and amazing.  Come, raise a toast to our country and the part you and others played to keep it free and safe! As you know FREEDOM is not free. It costs dearly!
     What goes on here at the Legion is all about you and stays at the legion!  It really helps  all.

American Legion Post 501 Brat Fest At Metro Market

Brat Fest Metro Mkt, 6-3-2017.jpg

   Held on certain Saturdays, weather permitting, throughout the year.  Our brat fest is scheduled for Saturday, October 7, 2017, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm at Metro Market, 6010 Cottage Grove Road, Madison, WI 53716.   We are very excited to serve again at the Metro Market location.  Their support for our brat fest is terrific.  We have updated our supply list and should now will have sufficient brats, hot dogs, and buns.  However, we would certainly be happy if more folks showed up to see if we can exceed our previous sales. Tables are available on the Metro Market patio, so you can sit and enjoy a fresh off the grill brat and/or hot dog.  The full brat meal at $5 includes chips (just don't take the Cheetos - one of our volunteers needs those to get through the day :) ) and a soft drink or water.
     Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends.  If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.
    We offer Johnsonville brats, full hot dog meals at $3, with or without buns, condiments, soda or water, and a wide selection of chips. 
    Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats and hot dogs.
     Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  If you can provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  We do need the additional support due to the popularity of this brat fest location.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats.
     Next Brat Fest is scheduled for October 28, 2017.  Check the calendar for dates when confirmed.

Attendance is increasing as veteran's share comradeship, cards & coffee.

Our Legion Post 501 is trying something new, which doesn't involve business talk nor work at the post, nor fund raising.  We invite all veterans to stop in sometime between 9 Am till Noon, on Thursday, September 28th for some coffee, some conversation, possibly a card game or two, and for those who come hungry - maybe some donuts, kringle or what have you.

Card games could include cribbage, Euchre, penny anti poker or spades, hearts or sheepshead, checkers or chess, dominoes, roulette - what ever tuns your crank. Not only are fellow legionnaires welcome, but also VFW, Navy League, MOAA, ROA, Active Duty from all branches of service and we'll even allow Marine Corps league vets in, so help us Lord.

Come and join the fun, relaxation and just visiting with fellow vets and other Warriors, who like all of us, have at one time, and even currently, marched in boots.

This is a new event sponsored by Post 501, so come early, stay as long as you wish.  We might ask for a $1 donation to cover the treats, but that will not be an entrance requirement.  Just bring your self, and a fellow vet if you know one, all will be welcome with a good attitude and a willingness to spend some time together.

    We offer Johnsonville brats (full meal for $5), hot dogs (full meal $3), with or without buns, condiments, soda or water, and a wide selection of chips.  Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats and hot dogs.
     Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  If you can provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.  We do need the additional support due to the popularity of this brat fest location.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats.

40 et 8 Voiture 683 Dane County Meeting at Post 501

    The Dane County 40 et 8 Voiture meets at the American Legion Post 501 in Madison for their September meeting.  Pot luck meal begins at 6:00, bring a good dish to pass, one your family always will come home for, and enjoy the sharing of activities with a French flair.  The Dane county 40 et 8 meets on a rotational basis at various Legion posts - for this September meeting it is Post 501's time to provide a space to meet.
    While the 40 et 8 is not a Legion sponsored organization, many members of Post 501 do belong.  Ask a member to share thoughts on joining; you must be sponsored, and also must be a person of good stature.  You might want to check out the 40 et 8 website for further details.  We look forward to seeing you here.

Tables are available on the Metro Market patio, so you can sit and enjoy a fresh off the grill brat and/or hot dog.  The full brat meal at $5 includes chips (just don't take the Cheetos - one of our volunteers needs those to get through the day :) ) and a soft drink or water.
     Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends.  If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.

Post 501 Coffee, Cards, and Camaraderie.

Our Legion Post 501 is trying something new, which doesn't involve business talk nor work at the post, nor fund raising.  We invite all veterans to stop in sometime between 9 Am till Noon, on Thursday, August 17th for some coffee, some conversation, possibly a card game or two, and for those who come hungry - maybe some donuts, kringle or what have you.

Card games could include cribbage, Euchre, penny anti poker or spades, hearts or sheepshead, checkers or chess, dominoes, roulette - what ever tuns your crank. Not only are fellow legionnaires welcome, but also VFW, Navy League, MOAA, ROA, Active Duty from all branches of service and we'll even allow Marine Corps league vets in, so help us Lord.

Come and join the fun, relaxation and just visiting with fellow vets and other Warriors, who like all of us, have at one time, and even currently, marched in boots.

This is a new event sponsored by Post 501, so come early, stay as long as you wish.  We might ask for a $1 donation to cover the treats, but that will not be an entrance requirement.  Just bring your self, and a fellow vet if you know one, all will be welcome with a good attitude and a willingness to spend some time together.
See PowerPoint flyer below.
