Post 501 Members / Business Meeting / Officer Elections

  • 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.
     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. Share with others the flowery, the stinky, the good, the bad and absurd. 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.
    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.
     Something has been added to the monthly Post meeting.  In addition to the 50/50 drawing, the winner will not only split the pot but also be able to take advantage of a free breakfast, to be used within the next three months.
     Next meeting scheduled:  Wednesday, June 14, 2017, which include the installation of new Post Officer leaders.
