December 2021 Newsletter


Fellow Legionnaires, family, and friends:

We continue to support our community through The American Legion’s founding principles of four pillars: Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children & Youth. 

We hope that this newsletter finds you and your families healthy and doing well. We wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and that everyone has healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

Post 281 Christmas/Holiday Dinner was held on 14 Dec at the Rutland Senior Living Place Banquet Room. The Roast Beef or Vegetarian meals were lauded upon by all in attendance. We had 72 in attending.

A grand surprise was had by all as we were entertained by a member of our post, Paul Alan Coons. Our Adjutant Terry Ward led us in singing a few Christmas Carols. I want to thank our Finance Officer Stephen Iles for his hard work coordinating with me collecting funds for the meals and settling the bill.
