At the May meeting of American Legion Post 125, Lyndon, Legionnaires confirmed new officers for the 2017-2018 year.

Bryce Romine, a past commander, swore in Commander Danny Roush, Vice Commander Lou Ogle, and Adjutant and Finance Officer Geri Thomas. Appointed as sergeant-at-arms was Lou Wohlitz.

After being sworn in, they conducted the monthly meeting, which included an update on upcoming activities and ongoing activities. There were updates on the post remodel; as this project continues we hope to raise funds to finish.

Memorial Day plans have been finalized. Flag ceremonies for Lyndon Legion are at Lyndon Cemetery at 10 a.m., Vassar Cemetery at 10:30 a.m., Pomona Dam with other area Legions at 11 a.m., and Oak Hill Cemetery, Quenemo, 11:30 a.m.

The post plans to keep up the hard work in the community by participating in many events this summer, including Memorial Day activities, Flag Day, parades, reading program involvement, and more fundraising. All funding goes to the future remodel of the post and community activities.
