This meeting will be a special one. We will have one important speakers. Our Dane County Executive, Joe Parisi, will discuss programs for Homeless Vets in our communities. Following this presentation, nominations for Post 501 leadership positions will be made. This meeting will be a bit longer than usual, so be sure to attend the full meeting.
Our 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 normally 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, May 9, 2018.
