Celebration of Life
On December 12th, 2013 dear friend and post family member Lu Fosdick passed away. Due to the location of the services and time of year many Post members were not able to attend.

The family is inviting all of you a Celebration of Life Party for Lu on Friday, January 24th at 7pm in the main canteen area. There will be no official service just a time of fellowship with her friends and family. 

We hope that you, her Post 129 family, can join her family in the celebration of a life well lived.

The 5th District would like to start a drive to fund a memorial marker at the Jacksonville National Cemetery. This marker would recognize the entire American Legion Family from the 5th District to honor those who served and are laid to final rest at the cemetery. It is anticipated this can become a reality in 2015.

 So we are now calling on those who are artistic or creative to submit some design to be considered. We will need such a design before we can get any pricing proposals or put this project out for bid.
