I am  enclosing a picture of my Locale presenting the colors today at a funeral for a fallen WWII Voyageur. He was 16 days short of hitting 98. What was very impressive were the 40&8 masks that we wore due to the covid – 19 pandemic. One woman was so thankful that she bought 2 of them in memory of her father. $5.00 each, made of cloth and very stylish. The mask can be seen in the Correspondent Corner Menu.

Camp American Legion Update

Voyageurs and Dames

Just found out that due to the Coronavirus and the age & risk factors of those who use the Camp; it will not be opened until July 1st of this year. (This is subject to change) Now that may or may not affect our Forty et Eight Days at Camp.

  • We should still be able to use a pontoon boat for the fishing tournament.
  • Might have to bring our own food for the Saturday afternoon picnic at the flowage. Not a problem there……
  • For now Camp Director Don Grundy will be the only employee throughout this period unless the open date is modified.

As with everything else going on and changing day to day; I will do my best to keep everyone notified on any updates or changes concerning 40 et Days at Camp. If all nonessential businesses are still closed June 25th – 28th; we’ll have to make some rather harsh decisions but until then, I plan on being up there early Thursday afternoon and painting lines for the bean bag tournament.
