American Legion Post 84 Awards Dinner - The smell of freshly baked garlic bread wafted over the crowd as we all waited for the Spaghetti dinner to be served.  We were not disappointed as the pasta and meat sauce were exceptional Wednesday night.  After dinner we watched as Mike Holmes presented awards for our Boys State Representatives.  This was followed by the AL Youth Baseball Team coach presenting certificates to our team members.  We closed the evening with a really good raffle where lots of great gifts were distributed.  You can be an active supporter of your Post by attending and enjoying these events.

Do You Know?  Karl A. Miener - Here is his short Bio: " I was born and raised in Concord, CA.  Joined the U.S. Army on 5 Feb 1969, and went to Ft. Lewis .WA. then to Ft. Gordon, GA. for Military Police School.  Went to Vietnam in July, 1969. At the end of my year, I  volunteered for an additional 6 months in country. I was stationed in Can Tho, My Tho, Soc Trang, Vihn Long, Tan An ,  &Dong Tam , in the Mekong Delta during my 18 months.  I came back stateside and was “put” into the Nike Missile Security field. I was stationed in Roberts. WI. and then Chatsworth, CA. Left active duty as an SGT. E-5.
      After leaving the service, I went to work for the U.S. Post Office in Concord, Ca., where I met my lovely wife Brenda.  I joined the 91st Army Reserve Unit, and spent 6 yrs, and was retrained as a Supply Sgt.  I left the 91st as a SFC E-7 . Our daughter was born 31 Oct.1979.
     2009, my folks lived in Sun City, and were in their 90’s. so we went together and bought a house with a separate in-law quarters on 3 acres in Newcastle, Ca.   I am now the proud grandpa of 3 boy’s 11, 6 and 4.     My wife and I enjoy going to Lake Shasta every year, and taking the Pontoon boat to Folsom."

One of the benefits of being an Post 84 Legionnaire is that if you have a large event, Wedding, Anniversary or Birthday and need a place to hold the event. If you are a paid up member the Post will either sponsor the event (therefore it's free to you) or will arrange for you to receive up to a 50% discount for using the hall. If you need use of the bar for your planned event, and if I (Court) am available, we'll open the bar. Again utilize the contact page and give Court a call.
