Milltown Legion stays busy during pandemic
The Milltown American Legion Post No. 332 has stayed busy during the COVID-19 pandemic with several events.
Legion members placed flags for veterans at Union Chapel Cemetery and served breakfast for Cave Country canoers.
The Sons of the American Legion hosted a four-wheeler ride that traveled more than 60 miles through the country. A drive-up chicken barbecue also took place. Both of these events raised funds for the WHAS Crusade for Children and Christmas food baskets for the community.
This year’s officers for the Milltown post are Eddie Wetzel, commander; Tony Mace and Tim Davis, vice commanders; John Petrysian, adjutant/finance officer; George Davis, historian; and Earnie Routh, chaplain.
Officers for the SAR are John Petrysian, commander/historian; Jake Mosier and Eddie Wetzel, vice commanders; Bob Arnold, adjutant; Bruce Kennedy, finance officer; and Eddie Wetzel, chaplain.
The American Legion Riders chapter hosted the fifth annual poker run in memory of Clyde (Teddy) Gowins with proceeds used to help pay funeral expenses for a former Legionnaire rider.
The posts are planning more events for the fall.
