Post 501 Members/Business Meeting - Nomination of Officers

  • American Legion Post 501 105 Dempsey Road Madison, WI 53714 (map)

     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 particular meeting is critical for all Legion members to attend due to the fact that we are nominating Legion members for officership positions.  Voting for election of officers will occur in the May Post membership meeting.
     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. Share with others the flowery, the stinky, the good, the bad and obsurd. 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!
     For those who attend the meetings, after the closing we have a 50/50 drawing.  All attendees who attend make a small contribution at the beginning of the meeting.  At the end of the meeting if your number is drawn, you will receive 50% of the pot.  The attendee who wins this drawing will also receive one free breakfast up to $5.50 which can be used at any Post sponsored breakfast within the next 3 months.
     What goes on here at the Legion is all about you and stays at the legion!  It really helps  all.
     Next meeting scheduled:  Wednesday, May 11, 2016.
