Commander Update; October 8th, 2017
Almost one year ago, Hurricane Matthew caused us to close the post and search for innovative ways to fundraise and get the post back up and running. I am proud to announce that we have officially re-opened American Legion Post 230 in Spring Lake, NC. This would not be possible without our membership, Team Rubicon, Operation Supply Drop, TheChive, Chive Charities, The Chive Fayetteville, Home Depot and American Legion NEF. Although the post is back open, we still have alot of work to be completed over the coming weeks.
We want to congratulate the following members for winning the raffle the post put on the last month. In total, the post raised right at $1100.00 to help us continue to purchase things needed for the post.
First Place: Jimmie Young
AR-15, Springfield Saint and 1 Year Free Membership to PSR-37
Second Place: Dan Vik
Mossberg Maverick 12-guage
First Place: Christian Whirlo
Ruger 10/22 Rifle
Free Day Shooting at Guns Plus Winners: Russell Mason, Quinn Larkin, Dave Meiners, Douglas Butler, Tim Gastonguat, Nancy Butler, Ozi Smith, N. McCormick and Heriberto Sanchez.
Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for the support. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get your prizes sorted.
