Just a reminder of the upcoming Bags event at the legion. Chris and Greg are looking to extend their title run. Come out and see if you can knock them off! We are collecting non-perishable food items to donate to the Linn County Veteran Food Bank. This food bank is new and served over 1300 area veterans last year. Help Post 555 support this worthy cause.

7:00 PM to 10:30 PM
January 17th


Holiday Greeting


St. Quentin Post Members and Friends,

I wanted to take just a moment during this busy holiday season to reflect on the past year and remember how fortunate we are to live in this great nation. Please never forget that what you do matters, no matter your role in our post, what you do makes a difference to all veterans, to those who are still serving, and to our nation. Thank you for what you do to make ours post what it is!

2014 has been a great year and I am honored to continue to serve as your Commander. We have accomplished a great deal this year, and each of us should be proud of those accomplishments with an eagerness to take on whatever the New Year brings.

As we bring closure to this year, let’s keep in mind those service members who are operating forward, many serving in harm’s way across the globe and away from family and friends. I ask that you keep them & their families in your thoughts and prayers.

Please enjoy the holidays with your family and get charged and ready for a great 2015 at the Ely American Legion!

Diane joins me in wishing you and your family a safe and joyful holiday season and a prosperous New Year!

Marv Peters
Commander, Post 555


Results from Bags Tournament on December 13th

December 13th proved to be another great evening of competition at the Ely Legion and in the end not even the “Ugly Christmas Sweaters” would help Austin and Cole ward of the competition as they lost their title and trophy to Greg and Chris.
Congratulations to Greg Billick and Chris Steuhm for being our winners at the 13 December Bags tournament at the legion. Greg and Chris will be defending their title on the 17th of January here at the legion. Watch for more details on upcoming tournaments soon!
