American Legion Post 411

May 24, 2007

The Lansing Memorial American Legion Post 411 held its monthly meeting on April 9th and elected new officers for the next year.

Officers elected are: Marty Morgan, commander; Carl Arnold, first vice commander; George Grimm, second vice commander; A.C. Byrd, adjutant; Don Bohnsack, chaplain; and June Foley, historian.

Members elected to the Executive Committee are Ralph Beckwith, Gene Middleton and John Overend. Wesley Browning was appointed Sergeant-at-arms.

The newly elected officers were installed immediately after the election by Dave Thomas, 1st District vice commander. Officers will serve through April 2008.

The Post is growing in membership and has achieved its seventh consecutive all-time high in membership. The goal is to continue to grow in membership each year so that it can continue to support the veterans and accomplish the missions of The American Legion.

This year the Post is sponsoring two young men to Boys State and one young lady to Girls State. There were no local applicants for Cadet Law Enforcement Academy at Salina. The Post is sponsoring three Lansing American Legion Baseball Teams this year.

The monthly Post meetings are conducted at 6:30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month.

The June 11 meeting will be a special dinner/social at La Mesa Mexican Restaurant, 710 N. Main St. in Lansing in which each person orders from the menu. The family is welcome to attend.

Meetings starting in July will return to the Lansing Activity Center, 108 S. Second Street, Lansing. All veterans in the area are invited to attend. Veterans wishing to join the Lansing Post or any current American Legion member wishing to transfer membership to the Lansing Post should contact A.C. Byrd at 727-1472.
