We are American Legion Post 77, and THIS, is 2020!!
2019 was a very good year for our American Legion Family. We held an Annual Armed Forces Day Appreciation BBQ, Annual Children of Veterans Christmas party, Back to School Bash, Fall Festival and American Legion Family of Post 77 held the very first Veterans Standdown in the area!!
We were featured on news channels, social media sites and in local papers. We may still be small and growing slowly, but we have the drive to improvise, overcome and adapt!
2020 has started off very nicely. We held a Planning Meeting in January to discuss with other organizations and city officials, the various events we plan to have during this next year in hopes to foster and build a closer and better cooperation to benefit the veterans in Bentonville and Centerton.
We have also submitted a couple of contestants for the 2020 American Legion Oratorical contest. The contest will be held February 29, 2020 in Little Rock and we are excited to see how these outstanding young contestants do.
We are still meeting at the Centerton City Hall Community Room on the 1st Thursday of each month. Light meal begins at 6pm and our general meeting begins around 630pm.
I hope to see more members and some new veterans and family members come and join us this year. There are a lot of changes in the American Legion, and Post 77 welcomes you to come and see what is different!
