American Legion Receives New Roof

This past Thursday folks from the Home Depot Myrtle Grove, Sayer Construction and several Legion members donated time and material to begin construction on a new roof on the Post 129 building. Stacy Walton, manager of the store learned of the buildings needs then filed for a grant through Home Depot’s Community Impact Grants Program called “Team Depot.” The efforts of Team Depot are to improve the homes and lives of veterans and their families. Walton stated, “This is a wonderful program that has not only helped us support local Veteran’s but also supports the American Red Cross Cape Fear and Work on Wilmington project.”  For more information visit www.homedepotfoundation.org. Post Commander, Ray Rothrock extended a huge “thank you” to Home Depot, its associates and Sayer Construction for their help.
For more information of the American Legion Post 129 follow them on Facebook and be sure to visit their next fundraiser Fish Fry Friday, July 6th! For only $8.00 a person you can enjoy a delicious plate of fresh fried fish or cat fish nuggets along with any of their great sides!  The Ladies Auxiliary will be at the fish fry selling mouth-watering desserts that are the perfect end to a great meal.  Visit the American Legion Post 129 for some delicious food with friendly people or stop in to take out plates for you and the family.  The Fish Fry runs from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. so stop in for lunch, dinner or an afternoon snack.
