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.
     This meeting in March is extra special, since we will have a guest speaker, an orthopedic surgeon, who will talk on the most up to date strategies on joint pain, and how to maintain an active lifestyle.  Refreshments will be available, provided by the organization supporting this review.  If you are new to our Post 501 meetings, be sure to let us know by phoning in your attendance plans, and/or let us know through the "CONTACT US"  link found on our Home Page.  We will need a headcount, to be sure we have the room properly set up.  We do expect a larger crowd due to the nature of this presentation.  We look forward to seeing you all here.
     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, April 11, 2018.

American Legion Post 501 Brat Fest at Metro Market

  Held on certain Saturdays, weather permitting, throughout the year.  Our brat fest is scheduled for Saturday, March 31, 2018, 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 April 21st.

Post 501 Members / Business Meeting / Officer Elections

    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.
     This is the most important Post 501 meeting of the year because it's the evening we elect new officers to lead this post.  Be sure to attend or your name may be submitted for nomination for an officer's position in your absence.  All members are reminded that they will need to have their current American Legion card to be eligible to vote.
     In addition, at this May Post meeting there will be a memorial service to honor our recently departed comrades.
     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, June 13, 2018, which include the installation of new Post Officer leaders.

Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts, and Camaraderie

Our Legion Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts & Camaraderie is working well.  This gathering doesn't involve business talk, nor work at the post, nor fund raising.  We invite all veterans and their spouses are welcome to stop in sometime between 9 am till Noon, on Thursday, May 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.

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.

If you can't make this coffee, check our Post 501 calendar for the scheduled date in the next month and add to your personal calendar.  We look forward to sharing time with you.

American Legion Post 501 Brat Fest at Metro Market

     Held on certain Saturdays, weather permitting, throughout the year.  Our brat fest is scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2018, 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 July 7th at Metro Market.  
     Thank you for your support of American Legion Post 501.

Post 501 Members/SAL/Auxiliary Holiday Potluck/Business Meetings

It's the HOLIDAY SEASON monthly meeting - you don't want to miss this one !    
      5:30 PM Social Hour - arrive early

            item. Homemade salads and desserts always in favor.
       7 PM Business meeting.
     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 2019 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.

Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts, and Camaraderie

Our Legion Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts & Camaraderie is working well.  This gathering doesn't involve business talk, nor work at the post, nor fund raising.  We invite all veterans and their spouses are welcome to stop in sometime between 9 am till Noon, on Thursday, February 15th, 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.

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.

If you can't make this coffee, check our Post 501 calendar for the scheduled date in the next month and add to your personal calendar.  We look forward to sharing time with you.

Post 501 Members / Business Meeting // Legionnaire of the Year & Volunteer of the Year Voting

  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.
     This is an especially important meeting, due to the fact that we will be voting on "LEGIONNAIRE of the YEAR", and every vote counts.  (Only active Members can vote.)  This meeting will also nominate and vote on an unsung hero of Post 501, a person who is not a legionnaire, but who stands steadfast in support of our important mission of standing up for the veteran and their families. If you can only come to one membership meeting per year, please make this one.  You will be free to nominate anyone you wish - one whom you feel has gone above and beyond the normal expectations.  We've got many deserving Legionnaires supporting this post, either through hours served and/or dollars donated.  This is a top honor, second only to being voted Post Commander.  Come and be counted, the voting is secret.
     Another important part of this month's meeting is an Update on Alzheimer's Disease Prevention study.  This wil be a 15 -20 minute overview by Dr Carlsson, Madison VA Hospital, on a new A/D Prevention study for Veterans.  This is critical knowledge which all of us need to be aware of.  If you make only one meeting per year, this is one of the top to attend.  We expect a large turnout, so if you will be a newbe, be sure to let us know either by calling the Post 501 phone, or use the "CONTACT US" tab found on our Home Page.
     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!

Post 501 Super Bowl Party For Post Members, SAL, Auxiliary, Fellow Veterans, Active Military, & Reserve

OUR AMERICAN LEGION POST 501 WILL CELEBRATE AGAIN THE SUPER BOWL GAME 

    Put February 4th on your calendar for a fun time at the Legion Post 501 clubhouse in celebration of the Super Bowl (even though the Packers will not be in). Share an afternoon with all fellow veterans, Active Duty, Guard, and Reserve service persons, and their families, are all welcome.  We'll start at about 4:00 pm; Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 PM.  We'll stay until the game ends.

Super Bowl Party, 2-5-2017 - 7.jpg

    We'll have card games, a 50-50 drawing, betting on end of each quarter scoring with pull tabs and even a score sheet for some of the better new advertisements trying to  entice us to buy stuff. There will be copious quantities of liquid libations, to include soda - a donation for these will be appreciated.  In addition, we will have tailgate type snacks aplenty (although don't plan on a full meal type operation). So don't spend the afternoon alone, bring a friend or spouse and join in the merriment.

Super Bowl Party, 2-5-2017 - 3.jpg

    Some challenges such as end of each quarter scores, a 50-50 option with up to three winners, and plenty of card decks, cribbage boards - you choice of tables.  For those who wish to support - we ask for a donation of $5 for the 50-50, not required that you join.  This day is not a pot luck, so you don't have to bring anything other than a few dollars for libations and if you wish to participate in the 50-50.

Super Bowl Party, 2-5-2017 - 6.jpg

   Bring stories of your military service - what was the best day and what was the worst day you experienced during your service.  What made for a good leader, and who was that individual who made your life miserable.
     Plan on arriving around 4 PM, and stay as long as you like.   We will remain open until the game end.  We already have the team to set up and take down, an amateur bartender (do not harass - he is working for free), so no work is required on your part.
    For those who were unable to attend last year's Super Bowl party day, you did miss a fun time.  Over 13 folks visited, some only for enough time to grab a bite to eat and say "Hi". All are welcome.  Come regardless of the weather.  If the snow reaches 4 feet or more, we will send a snowmobile over for you.
    We will ask for you to contribute $5.00 for the 50-50 challenge, to help offset the cost of the foodstuffs - but this is not required.  If enough folks show up, we may be able to split the 50-50 two or more ways.  Bring a spouse or veteran friend.  Dress for the weather.
    Don't spend the Super Bowl day alone, and our Post 501 will be a lot less expensive than the local taverns and even better - filled with folks like you.  It's a fun day at your Legion.
    For headcount, please send send a note utilizing the "Contact Us" tab on our website if you just might show up.  Those who don't will be talked about. :)  See you all there !

Post 501 Members / Auxiliary / SAL Holiday Potluck / Business Meeting

 

It's the HOLIDAY SEASON monthly meeting - you don't want to miss this one !    
      5:30 PM Social Hour - arrive early
      6:00 PM - Potluck - please bring a dish to share with others.  Post is providing meat
            item. Homemade salads and desserts always in favor.
       7 PM Business meeting.
     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 2018 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.
     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".

     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.

Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts, and Camaraderie

Coffee & Cards 6-29-2017.jpg

Our Legion Post 501 Coffee, Cards, Donuts & Camaraderie is working well.  This gathering doesn't involve business talk, nor work at the post, nor fund raising.  We invite all veterans and their spouses are welcome to stop in sometime between 9 am till Noon, on Thursday, November 16th, 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.

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.

If you can't make this coffee, check our Post 501 calendar for the scheduled date in the next month and add to your personal calendar.  We look forward to sharing time with you.

NOTE:  There will be no coffee and cards scheduled for December due to the holidays.
