American Legion recruiting new members
Apr 28, 2017 03:42PM
The commander of the Springville Unit, Fred Hurst, is in need of younger veterans to join as members of the American Legion. If you are a veteran of the Kosovo War, the Persian Gulf War, the War in Afghanistan or the Iraq War, here is a calling for you to join the local unit of the American Legion as thousands from previous wars have done. However, you do not have to be a veteran of a hostility to be a member; any veteran can join. There is currently a critical need for buglers because the American Legion averages two funerals a week.
The unit has monthly meetings and the dues are $35 per year. Call Fred Hurst at 801-704-9256 for more information about joining.
The May meeting of the Springville American Legion Unit is on May 10 and will be a spaghetti dinner event. This will be held at the Springville Senior Center at 7 p.m. and all veterans and spouses are invited. The dinner is $10 per person and you need to RSVP to Fred Hurst at 801-704-9256 or Richard Money at 801-489-4018 by May 5.
The American Legion is planning a Memorial Day ceremony at 10 a.m. on May 29 at the Springville Evergreen Cemetery located just west of Highway 89 at 1997 S. 400 East.
