After two years, the American Legion Post 34 reopened on April 14th, and their Commander Garth Rettinghouse said they are ready to serve their community and local veterans.

Since 1929, the Legion has been a veteran-run organization for veterans. “We have resources. We can provide meals or if one needs clothes.
We even have resources for the VA or even housing. There’s a wide

variety of resources for the community veterans,” said Rettinghouse.

Whether it’s renting out the large space and kitchen for an event, birthday, wedding, a celebration of life, or participating in a fundraiser, the Legion is dedicated to keeping resources for veterans. They are currently looking for members and want the community to know that you don’t have to be a veteran yourself to become a member.

Rettinghouse is encouraging the public to learn more about the Legion and help keep the space open. It’s the support from the community that helps keep this place open Tuesday through Saturday and hopefully soon back to seven days a week, said Rettinghouse.
