Legion: Thanks for your support!

To the editor:

The officers and members of the American Legion Post 964 in Chestertown want to thank all those who supported us doing our annual coin drop — You make the difference each year. Your contributions every summer during our Fourth of July coin drop helps us give back to the community, by sending one or two students to American Legion Boys State for a week.

Your contributions also get used to award students in the Legion’s annual oratorical contest in which students receive scholarships toward their higher education as they move up from local competition through the county, district, state and national levels.

Many of our supporters not only contribute to our annual coin drop, but our annual clam bake and golf tournament.

We thank the following sponsors:

The Crossroads Store, Creative Opportunity Preschool, Deer Crossing Restaurant, Lake George Steamboat Co., Luna Pizza, Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, McCluskey Hardware, Rocky Ridge Storage & Firewood, Stewart’s Shops, Hemlock Ledge Restaurant, Top of the World Golf Resort and Tops Market.

Thanks also go to the tee sponsors in our golf tournament: Barton-McDermott Funeral Home, Brant Lake Collision, Buckman’s Family Fuel, Extra Room Storage, Glens National Bank, MacMillen Construction, Mountain Abstract, Smith’s Plumbing, Stevenson Agency, T.C. Murphy Lumber and Upstate Agency and of course we couldn’t do it without our loyal golfers.

Thank you. Without your annual support, we couldn’t accomplish what do and plan on doing in the future!

Joe Slattery, on behalf of:

American Legion Post 964, Chestertown
