We look forward to all the adventures and challenges that 2018 will bring. Before we move on however, I want to take a minute to remember 2017.
I won't and can't list everything here, but we had some awesome highlights. Our Legion family gatherings in March, August, and December had record attendance. We supported youth throughout our community by; donating to the MH Music Program, supporting scouting projects and programs, providing three scholarships to High School Seniors, recognizing three young men that were about to enter the Military Services, and with the support of the Chamber, the Mount Horeb Community Foundation, Lions, Optimists and Rotary Clubs we sent 10 boys and 6 girls to Badger Boys and Girls State.
We visited and assisted Veterans and their families in need. Because of the support from our entire community Mike Kersten now has all the money necessary to acquire his service dog through Wilderwood Service Dogs. Financially assisted and volunteered at the Operation Stand Down for homeless Veterans in our area.
We have formed an association with the VFW and the local Vietnam Veterans to continue planning for a Veterans Memorial that will pay tribute to all Veterans and their service to our great nation.
We provided Honor Guards and Pass in Reviews for 14 veterans funerals. There are so many other positives from 2017; the Flag Holiday Program, the visits to Ingleside and the Senior Center, Color Guards for games, parades, Relay for Life, 9-11 Ceremony, support to Badger Honor Flights, etc...
Our MH American Legion is continuing to grow and flourish. We look forward making 2018 even better than 2017. One way we can do that is by assisting veterans in our area. If you know of a Veteran that needs assistance, please give us a call at 437-0113 or send us an email at email@example.com
