American Legion Post 199
St. Helena

American Legion Post 199 located in Saint Helena is a thriving Post with over 115 members and an active Auxiliary Unit. The three primary purposes of Post 199 are to provide social engagements, volunteerism, and donations back to Veteran’s Organizations and the community. Post 199 hosts monthly dinners available to all members and their families. Additionally, Post 199 provides a community wide Memorial Day Ceremony with a lunch. The Post focuses their volunteerism and donations to the Yountville Veteran’s Home along with financial support to college scholarships, youth sports, police, and the fire department. Members of Post 199 are proud to have served their country. The friendly Post members welcome new veteran’s to join us on the second Wednesday of the month with social hour starting at 6 PM and dinner to follow at 7 PM.

Nick and Marilyn Coy, Jerry Decker, Michael Griffin, and my youngest son, Zach placed flags in the Catholic Cemetery today. Many thanks to them as well. The Rifle Squad will have a rehearsal tomorrow at 1200 at the Hall. The Memorial Day ceremony begins at 1000 on Monday May 27.

Congratulations to Post members Callie Flood and Matthew Johnson on their wedding earlier this month in Cabo San Lucas! Callie is now on active duty orders in Altus, Ok transitioning to the KC-46. ( KC-10 replacement) On her second night in Oklahoma (yesterday) she experienced her first tornado. Welcome to Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweeping across the plains….

From the Auxiliary

The Auxiliary will meet at 1800 hours prior to the dinner June 12. We will be making plans for next year. We are in need of a secretary! If you have a few minutes a month to help us it would be appreciated. The job isn’t hard. The last few years this position has been filled by a Jr Auxiliary member from the Novak family. If there is a girl who would like to earn some service hours this is a good opportunity.

All gave some, some gave all….
