Post 90, Unit 90 and Squadron 90 of the American Legion Family welcome all of you to the 100th anniversary as we prepare for our annual 1884 Day celebration for Valentine’s Birthday.
Post 90 is named for Leo Brinda, the first area person who lost his life in battle during World War I. 100 years ago, Legion Post 90 was issued a charter as a member of the American Legion, and it has been because of your help over the years that we have been so successful and continue to serve our community.
When you have a few minutes, just stop on main street here in Valentine and look at the list of Veterans who served in the military. You will see a star beside some of them which indicates they died in battle giving their lives for our country. It is because of them and all those who served, that keeps this country going strong.
It is also a tradition that 1884 Day specials will be offered by many local businesses to benefit the community. Please be sure to take advantage of these sales.
1884 Days will kick off with a fundraiser for the American Legion Baseball teams, with a free will donation for hamburgers, hot dogs and Bill’s baked beans. Held upstairs at the Vets Club from 5:30 until 7:30 on Friday April 26.
Post 90 will be hosting a tournament this year for area Legion Baseball teams here in Valentine. Coach Kent Lopez along with assistant coach Vince Lopez are working hard to make this a successful event. Be sure to congratulate Coach Kent who is now entering his 40 or 41st year as coach for our Post 90 baseball teams! Thank You so much to Kent and all your helpers.
On Saturday April 27 Squadron 90 of the Sons and Post 90 will host the annual pancake, sausage and biscuit & gravy breakfast from 7 AM to 11AM with a free will donation.
Unit 90 will be distributing poppies for a donation of your choice as this is also Poppy Day. Poppy Posters will be displayed all around the Vets Club basement. Winners and entries to state competition will be featured. We are so proud of our young people and their poppy posters as they continue to display their patriotism and appreciation of veterans.
Please join us, everyone is welcome.
