Back in December 2012, the Ladies Auxiliary sent us to the storage shed to get some Christmas decorations. In the process of picking up the storage totes, we discoved an old ledger book on the floor. It turned out to be the original minutes fron 1920, when our post was chartered. During the transcribing of these minutes to save them, we took it a step further and decided to find out more about the men on the original charter. It was during this research that we found out that the local paper published the letters the WW1 soldiers wrote home. It was then that the decision to publish these letters was made. We are still working on the history of the post. We are up to 1946 and now are trying to get WW2 information together. WW2 is about the sons of the WW1 veterans.
