Busy summer for American Legion Post in Inlet

Posted

INLET — The Leonard-Mick-Roberts American Legion Post #1402 has had a very busy first half of summer, according to a report by Adjutant Bruce O’Hara.

On the Fourth of July, the members offered a program by Gordy Rudd explaining the American flag’s origins, proper displaying techniques, and the appropriate method of retiring the flag when it becomes faded and/or tattered.

Chip Sauer provided a metal fire ring for a demonstration on how to dispose of old flags.

Later that week, the Historical Society presented a program on the origin, name and history of American Legion Post #1402. Charlie Herr and Rudd narrated a slide show illustrating some of the post’s highlights over the years. Ted Harwood, a life member of the post offered many interesting comments and identified Inlet residents in some of the photos.

Representatives of the post were present at the Arts in the Park craft show where they sold raffle tickets on a Yeti cooler, donated by Ace Hardware, as a fundraiser to underwrite charitable activities.
