Tuesday, November 26, 2019

The American Legion Post 227 in Shoreline will hold their monthly meeting on Tuesday evening, December 3, 2019. A meet and greet starts at 6:30pm and the program starts at 7:00pm. Both veterans and the public at large are invited and welcome to attend.

The meeting will be held at Post 227, located at 14521 17th Ave NE, Shoreline, 98155. [Behind Goodwill @ NE 145th St and 15th Ave NE]

Gary Walderman from Hero’s Café will present a certificate of appreciation to the family of Korean War Veteran Ronald Marks for the donation of more than 100 books – many of WWII action. The books will be turned over to the military library of Post 227.

Then Thelma Sevilla, Deputy Director of Region 8 Filipino-American Veteran Recognition and Education Project, will present a Congressional Gold Medal to Post 227 member Merlin Staatz for WWII action in the Philippine Islands in war time in which he was awarded a purple heart.

A brief intermission for refreshments after the talk will allow visitors to depart. Post 227 members are urged to stay for the post meeting that will follow the intermission. We hope to see you at the meeting.

While you are at the meeting, you can check out the Post Library that includes a large collection of military related books, video tapes and DVDs. Any of these can be checked out, used and returned by post members and community without charge.
