Our American Legion Post 501 needs work on a substantial number of projects, some currently ongoing, to improve the quality of our Post. One of our highest priorities is the renovation of the Post History Museum/Auxiliary meeting room. After several years of planning, and in receipt of sufficient funding to cover the costs of materials, and gathering of team members who are able and intelligent enough to provide the labor hours, the room is finally a work in progress. We're now about half way done, with carpet, outside door, ventilation, and drop ceiling with lighting being the still outstanding sub projects. Hopefully completion will hit the target of this coming October. Following are some photos of the work in progress by the team members. We will update this section of this page in the near term future, as further progress ensues. The Legionnaires of Post 501 want to pay a special thanks for our Auxiliary members who generously provided out of their own limited budget a substantial amount of funding which has allowed this renovation to proceed. If any of you could provide either a dollar or more or an hour or two of your valuable time, we could certainly and thankfully use some more support.
Post 501 Volunteer Projects
Following is a list of projects needed to improve the quality of the Post 501 facilities, used both by fellow legionnaires, and also open to the public. What is needed is folks willing to put in an hour or two per project, or to make a $ contribution in order to purchase the needed items and supplies necessary to meet the need of the project. The total hours needed to complete each project is estimated. The total hours can in many cases be divided up by the number of volunteers. Some of the work can be done on a weekend, and other projects can be partially completed during workdays. The Post 501 House Committee is responsible for publishing the project dates and times (TBD) and will be published on this website's calendar at a later date.
If you can devote either an hour or a dollar, please let us know – use the “Contact US” page of this website as a starting point. If you would be willing to assist in any way, just let us know of a day and time that you would be available. If you leave your phone number, we will get back to you as soon as possible for follow up and coordination.
