Greetings from American Legion Post 299, Mabel MN.
Mabel is located in the SE corner of MN, surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, farm land and forests. We welcome everyone to our Legion so if you are ever in this area, please stop in for a visit.
Our next scheduled event is a Korean War Veterans dinner which will be held 14NOV09. We will be taking pictures, then making a booklet of the Korean War Vets just as we did with a WWII Veterans dinner a couple years ago.
Two members of our Post 299 have composed and released some great patriotic CD's and DVD's that include "Serving those who have served" which is an anthem to the American Legion. They played their music during the National Convention in Louisville, Post 201 and the 4-Corners party and it was a great patriotic time.
Their new release "WE GOTTA RIDE" is a tribute as always for the American Veteran and specifically for all the Rider groups throughout the U.S. who ride in support of our Veterans. Post 299 is in the process of forming a Riders unit. Please check them out at www.drivenduo.com for more information. Our Post 299 is proud to have Harold and Paul doing so much to promote the American Legion.
I can not put in words what it was like watching the Legacy Run riders pull out of the Highland Post 201 parking lot in the final leg of their 2009 Legacy Run during the National Legion Convention in Louisville KY! Riders from throughout the United States took part in this event and may God bless each and every one of you for what you are doing!
Vice Commander, Post 299, Mabel MN 55954
