Farewell to Tom Story
Ninety-three year old World Ear II veteran and retired Sergeant-Major Tom Story, one of the original members of American Legion Post 205 when it was formed in 2005, is moving with his wife and daughter to the Richmond, Virginia area. On Saturday, June 30, we held a going away get together to bid farewell to Tom. It was held at Caddys in Rose Hill. Unfortunately, Tom's wife was ill and could not attend, but Tom had a wonderful time and will be sorely missed. Although he is Army, not Navy, we still bid him "Fair winds and following seas!"
The Dennis J. Becker American Legion Post 205 will hold its third Memorial Day Ceremony on Memorial Day, Monday, May 28, 2018. Befitting the occasion, it will be a solemn event, not a celebratory event like a parade. It will be held in the open area outside the Bluffton Police Department Headquarters on Buckwalter Parkway. The American Flag will be raised from half-staff to full-staff at noon. We have dedicated an entire web page to this important annual event.Type your paragraph here.
This year's oratorical contest will be held at the Bluffton Public Library on 13 January 2018. See the Oratorical Contest page for details.
