American Legion Post 239

Posted on Tuesday, July 9, 2019 at 1:46 am

The Post will be open Saturday, July 13, beginning at 11AM. Enjoy a lite bite, cold drinks, great music, and a good time.
A bill expanding membership eligibility for The American Legion passed on June 11 by unanimous consent in the Senate. The Let Everyone Get Involved in Opportunities for National Service Act — also known as the LEGION Act — is a bipartisan effort introduced by Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C.
Because The American Legion’s membership periods are congressionally chartered, the organization is prevented from expanding membership eligibility without an act of Congress. The act will expand membership eligibility to honorably discharged veterans who have served in unrecognized times of war since World War II. Watch this space for more information on the track of the Act.
The Post will be open for breakfast, Sunday 7/21/2019. For a donation of $6, you can order eggs (fixed your way), pancakes, sausage, potatoes and gravy/grits, coffee, OJ and toast.
All functions are located at 307 American Legion Way, Mascotte, FL. For any additional information on any of the Legion’s activities, contact Don Grieb, 352-874-2623.
