Lyndon Legion swears in new officers, kicks off community veterans banner program

By Geri Schuler

At the May 13, 2019, meeting of American Legion Post 125, legionnaires swore in new officers for the 2019-2020 year, in time for the state convention.

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 post meeting, which included an update on upcoming activities and ongoing activities.  There were updates on the post remodel, and as this project continues we hope to raise funds to finish.

They discussed their partnership with the city of Lyndon and Lyndon Pride on the Veterans banner project.  Love ones can purchase a banner for a loved one that served in the armed forces. The banners will be hung on the decorative light poles on Topeka Avenue in Lyndon during the month of November, for three years.  The cost will be $150 for the banner.  This is a way to honor love ones during the month of November for Veterans Day.

Flag ceremonies for the 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, at Quenemo, at 11:30 a.m.

Memorial Day plans also were finalized. Flag ceremonies for the 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, at Quenemo, at 11:30 a.m.

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