The American Legion is 100 years old

Easley, SC

On March 16, 2019, American Legion Post 52 of Easley, S.C., along with Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers celebrated the 100th birthday of The American Legion with an exciting party. The kids enjoyed a City of Easley Fire Truck on display with local firefighters, face painting, bounce house, magician, balloons and a slide. The children were also given copies of "Our Country's Flag" comic books and 4"x6" American flags purchased from Flag and Emblem. The restaurant patrons quieted each time Post 52 members presented the proper method of handling, folding, and citing the meaning of the 13 folds of the American flag. A certificate was issued to American Legion Post 52 by the Easley Chamber of Commerce congratulating us on being 100 years old and our commitment and contributions to the Easley community. It was a fun community day..
