Most recent gathering, 11/21/2017.

In the above picture, Ray is taking Bill to the cribbage woodshed with a skunk.  Chris and Violet came for donuts and a Domino schooling.  Gene showed grandson Matt the inner strategy of of a strong cribbage hand.  Charlie showed up and regaled all present with his Navy years, traveling the Orient by destroyer, and accompanying President Truman's flagship during a local cruise. You missed a good time if you were not there.

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, January 18th, 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.
