SHERIDAN AMERICAN LEGION POST 729
Sheridan American Legion Commander Larry Ryg called to order the March 20 meeting. Also in attendance were Ron Petersen, Rob Borchsenius, Bob Wickens, Rich Tuntland, Emil Luesman, Jack Wise, Howard Buckle, Dennis May, Randy Rosengren, Mike Mott and Roger Knight.
Petersen reported no Color Guard activities. Ed Marshall is continuing his research into the 5K Run Project on Memorial Day to raise money for Dan Mason, a veteran from Sheridan.
The post received a donation from the Breen family. The Color Guard participated at William L. Breen’s funeral, and also will participate in a ceremony at the mobile Vietnam wall in Ottawa in early June.
The annual donation to the Illinois Veterans Home in La Salle was discussed and tabled. Adjutant Borchsenius spoke with past Commander Bob Acosta. A group of Post 729 members will visit soon.
The car cruise July 4 was discussed; fliers will be ordered. All are reminded of Post 729 bingo on Wednesday evenings and fish fry Fridays.
The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17.
