12th District Council, Department of Ohio
With summer almost over and the heat still here, let us renew our efforts to reach out to veterans less fortunate than us; especially our homeless vets. On any day in Central Ohio, there are hundreds of them roaming the streets---hot, sweating, hungry, dirty, without homes, despondent---feeling alone. We must reach out to help. These patriots risked life and limb for our country. Let's not turn our back on them. If you know of any homeless veteran in Reynoldsburg who desperately needs help, contact any one of our post officers, the 12th District Council Office (Open M-W-F, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.) at (614) 224-2900, or any Central Ohio American Legion post.
The next regularly scheduled monthly post meeting will be on Thursday, September 8, 2016, at 1900 hrs. at the FOE Eagles Club on Brice Road.
The Reynoldsburg Post 798 regular monthly meeting is at the F.O.E. Eagles Club (#3261) located at 1623 Brice Road in Reynoldsburg (a block north of Rosehill Ave). Monthly meetings will be held here on a trial basis for six months. All Legionnaires are invited to come. The Eagles Club will allow all members of the American Legion to enter an hour before the meetings. Just press the buzzer and state that you have come for the Legion meeting. Sgt-at-Arms McPherson will be there to ensure all Legionnaires are admitted.
Attendance for post officers is mandatory.
All post members are also encouraged to attend and help the officers in their planning. Any qualifying veteran wishing to join is also quite welcome to attend and be a part of the largest veteran organization in the country. If there are any questions. please contact Post Commander, Pete Margaritis at (614) 395-0387.
The post held a picnic last month on the afternoon of Sunday, August 14, 2016 at the Blacklick Metro Wood Park. All who attended had a great time, despite the spotty showers. (See photos)
