March Commander's Corner:
We have so many people to thank for making our Culver’s Share Day on the 22nd of March such a huge success. To Jim and Judy Nonn who own the Mount Horeb Culver’s, we really appreciate you taking the time out of your day to come and visit with us. To the Culver’s Mount Horeb management and staff thank you for letting us hold a fundraiser / share day in your facility, we were very impressed with your hospitality, helpfulness, and courteous treatment.
I would like to thank Paul Hodgson for coordinating this event and for working to make it so successful. Thank you to all the MH American Legion members who made this event possible. Thank you to Denise and Mike Rohan for taking time out of your extremely busy schedule to make our special event even better. Thank you: to the people who coordinated our Culver’s Share Day, to all those that helped set up, to those who manned the “booth” at Culver’s and finally to those who came to eat, and support our share day and to socialize with friends.
We recognized two of our stately members at our Culver’s Share Day, Ralph Buechner and Al Bendickson for 70 and 45 years continuous membership respectively. Both received certificates from the MH American Legion, Post 113, and Ralph received a certificate from the National Commander of The American Legion, Charles Schmidt. We were very blessed that Denise Rohan the next National Commander of The American Legion (the first woman to ever lead a service organization) came to present Ralph’s certificate from National Headquarters.
As mentioned at the event Ralph is a mentor and shining example for all of us in the Mount Horeb American Legion. Ralph has done so much for our American Legion not only during his time as our Commander but as a member, an officer, a guide and a mentor. Ralph sets the example for all of us to follow. He is a gentleman, a friend, family man, and a faith filled man. Most of you remember all to well that for many years when the MH American Legion Color Guard went by for the Frolic Parade or on Memorial Day that Ralph and Wes Fields were the rifle bearers leading us on. Ralph has not only served our MH American Legion for 70 years, he has served this entire community. Ralph is as fine an ambassador for our American Legion and our community as you could ever hope to find. Thank you again for all you have done for us Ralph.
