  • We’ve added a new office to be used by the commander and our kitchen manager. It was thought necessary to move all our office management work in house.
  • We also have been able to shut down one of our walk in coolers and removed a slide door refrigerator in order to cut utility costs.
  • We’ve also hired a new bartender, Jeannine Ernsberger from Brownville, WI.

WE NEED NAMES,  addresses where presently  residing and birthdates of all legions members in nursing homes or hospitals, etc. for us to stay up to date with our records.  Please send this information to American Legion Post 347, 412 Pleasant Hill Ave, Lomira WI.  53048, % of our Adjutant Gil Ahtonen.

This next week we are starting our membership drive to get any and all eligible veterans to join up with our American Legion Post 347.  On October 22nd, we will be making a team effort to contact these veterans and encourage them to join.

Our next membership meeting is October 20, 2016  Doors are open at 5:45 PM.  Drinks are $1.00, Sodas $.50.  A $1.00 raffle is also run at the meeting.   Meeting starts at 6:00 PM.

Would also like to see more of our members patronizing the Legion.   Help support us at our membership meetings and at our Friday Night Fish Fry.  We are open every Friday night from 4 – 9.  Bar has been newly remodeled in January and we think you would enjoy our new, more comfortable atmosphere.
