I’d like to thank the American Legion Family, the Waterbury Rotary, and the USO Cast for another excellent production of the Annual USO Show held this past week! Even with the weather, folks came out to see the show both Friday and Saturday evening. “Sweet Sixteen” was the theme this year. This massive endeavor is hosted by Unit #59, Legion Auxiliary, and just a few years ago, the Waterbury Rotary joined the team. There are just way too many folks involved in the production to list all of the participants. However, the number of hours it takes to create and have two shows says a lot for organizations and individuals that volunteer to participate in the fundraising opportunity. “Many Thanks!”
Waterbury has a number of eligible veterans. I’d encourage our veterans to attend our monthly post meeting on the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. Unit #59, Legion Auxiliary has its meeting at the same time. Next meeting is March 11. Please join us. We’ll assist in getting your application processed. Any questions can be directed to Commander Rick, 802-522-7770. Squadron #59 Sons hold a monthly meeting on the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. Next meeting is March 3. You may be eligible to join. Please attend the appropriate meeting.
“Elvis” will visit Waterbury Post #59, American Legion on Friday, Feb. 28. Some believe Elvis is still alive! Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with the show starting at 7 p.m. Reserve your tickets by calling the post after 3 p.m., 802-244-8144, or stop in to purchase your tickets. Tickets are $8 each. Thank you in advance for your participation! The event is open to the public.
