From July Newsletter

If you were out at Fairlawn Cemetery on Memorial Day, you may have noticed the new U.S. Flags flying around the cemetery.  The previous flags had been used for years and were ready to be replaced.  We would like to thank Arconic, a local company, for purchasing the new flags! They will be flown with pride for many years to come!

From June Newsletter

 

Hi everyone, I would like to introduce myself as the new squadron commander for 2017-18. My name is Shane Tracy and I have been an SAL member for 10 years.  As summer kicks off, I hope everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend.  If some squadron members have some free time, I would like to meet you some time at our hamburger night/monthly meeting on the third Thursday of each month or on the second Saturday of each month when we serve Chicken Fried Steaks at the Legion.
