Post 101 presents CT Legion History Centennial gift to Somers Library


Post 101 presents Somers (Conn.) Public Library with Legion history book

Somers, CT


At 10 a.m., Saturday, March 16, 2019, Buck-Dubiel Post 101 in Somers, Conn., as well as other posts across Connecticut, presented to their local public library a history of the Connecticut American Legion Family from 1919 -2019. The date chosen represents 100 years since the Legion's first caucus in Paris, France, March 15-17, 1919. The birthday gift represents 100 years of Legionnaires (men and women who served at least one day of active duty in the Armed Forces, National Guard or Reserve during a wartime period) serving their Connecticut communities.
Post 101's presentation was made by Post Commander David McCaffrey, Post Public Relations Director Sherri Marquis and Post Operations Officer/2018 Department of Connecticut Legionnaire of the Year Leroy Collins to the director of the Somers Public Library, Jessica Miller, in the lobby of the library located at 2 Vision Blvd.
The ceremony was small but memorable, reflective of the Legion's ongoing mission to connect with our Legion Family and our communities for the next 100 years and beyond.
