American Legion Hosts Veterans Day Festivities

American Legion Post 150 in Ste. Genevieve will host a special ceremony beginning at 11 a.m. on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11.

A free lunch will be served to all those who attend.

Boy Scouts will take part in a flag-folding ceremony, which will be followed by the raising of a new flag at the post. A tribute by all local veterans organizations — the VFW and its auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, the American Legion and Legion auxiliary — will follow. At the close of the ceremony, a rifle salute will be given by members of the VFW, and “Taps” will be played.

A chicken lunch will follow. All are encouraged to attend.

Also, the U.S. Congress has removed date restrictions for any prior service members who seek to become a Legion member. Those who have served and been discharged honorably are eligible for membership. For more information, visit the Legion club room.
