Commander's Column

Post Commander Marti Bigbie

Thanks to every Legionnaire who renewed their membership before December 31st as your current membership expires on 1-1-19 but can be reinstated upon payment.  ALSO, welcome to all the new Legion members who have joined Post 90, St George.

I would like to thank all who came and participated in our Pearl Harbor Commemorate at Tonaquint Cemetery on December 7th. The day was a little chilly but the sun did finally come out. 

I appreciate all of the Veterans Service Organizations, Daughters of American Revolution, American Patriotic Riders, family and visitors for helping make this a day of remembrance by bring together all branches of Service to Commemorate a date in history at exactly 10:48 am (our time for the bombing on December 7th Pearl Harbor).

To everyone who came out to place wreaths for Wreaths Across American sponsored by the Color County Chapter of the Daughters of American Revolution on December 15th at Tonaquint Cemetery, St George Cemetery and Shivwits Cemetery with the placing of wreaths for 1800 plus veterans graves I thank you.

Christmas packages put together by the American Legion Auxiliary have been delivered to Veterans in Assisted Living homes, Rehab Centers, WWII and Korean Veterans, Auxiliary members, Southern Utah Veterans Home, Ivins in time for Christmas. At the Christmas party for Post 90 food items were collected and delivered to Switch Point for the food pantry. 

Thanks for all who participated in making and collecting items to put these packages together and delivery of the packages.

Have a safe and Happy New Year.
