Commander's Message

Commander Lagoda reports:

    Summer is finally here, make sure to stop by the Post for a cold frosted beverage. I would like to thank all the members who participate with the work details and those who contribute your time doing odds and ends, the Post is looking great and going strong because of you. The Father's Day brunch was a great success, great work Auxiliary!

    Important dates for July include The 4th of July Independence Day, July 27th Korean War Veterans Armistice Day and July 29th Anniversary of the Army Chaplain Corps.

    The West Seneca Legion Post 735 baseball team are playing hard and having fun. Their record is currently 2-5 but there are plenty of games left to play. First home game in July is on Wednesday the 3rd, starting at 5:30 PM. This is a doubleheader against Hamburg at Centennial Park. The team schedule is posted inside the Post. Feel free to attend the baseball games and let's support our team!

    The Sons are hosting a Catamaran boat ride on August 18th and the Post is having our Family Picnic on August 4th. Tickets for these events are currently on sale at the Post. Hope to see everyone at both events.
