Legionnaires asked to support flag project

-A A +A

During one of the recent meetings of Crawford-Hale American Legion Post 95 in Vandalia, members discussed the immediate need to replace the flags on the stage of the Legion Home.
Members noted that age has taken its toll on the American flag and the American Legion Post 95 flag, and have learned that the total cost of replacement for the flags – and the bases, staff eagles and tassels – is approximately $890.
Pledge cards were passed out to all members at a recent meeting, and filled-out cards were collected at the end of that meeting.
Members agreed at the meeting that all members of Post 95 should be given the opportunity to participate in the flags project.
Donations to the project should be sent to the American Legion Home, 321 S. Seventh St., Vandalia, Ill. 62471.
In the event that donations exceed the amount needed to replace the flags, the remaining funds will be put into the post's Avenue of Flags maintenance fund.
