SENTINEL – OCTOBER – 2021

One hundred years ago an American Legion Post was established in Conneaut, OH. This year marks the one hundredth anniversary of our Post, Cowle Post 151. The Post was named after twin brothers Harland and Wayland Cowle who served during WWI. The Cowle brothers lived in the Conneaut area. Thousands of veterans have been, and are currently members of American Legion Cowle Post 151. On Oct., 15, 2021, the Post will be celebrating this honored accomplishment. 85 different Legionnaires have had the honor of serving as Commander of this great Post. The event will be held at the Post and will begin at 5:00 pm. A dinner will be served beginning at 6:00 pm. Many Legionnaires along with Community guests will be invited to attend this special occasion. The guest speaker will be Department of Ohio Legionnaire Jean Wilson. As mentioned numerous times, Jean is from Conneaut and is the first female elected as the State of Ohio Department Commander. Although the COVID pandemic has reared its ugly head once again methods are available to combat this enemy. Your Post feels very comfortable in holding the celebration on Oct. 15. The Social Room Attendants have continued to insure that the sanitary suggestions and requirements that were done in the past continue to be done. Things are going well within the Post. Although we sure miss many of the members that, throughout the years, have been frequenting the Post, we hope all is going well with them and look forward to their visits again. The Post will be having a Halloween Party this year. The party will be held on Friday Oct., 29, 2021 from 7 pm to 10 pm. It is open to members and their guests. There will be a DJ playing music and a good time will be had by all that attend. The new hall is available for rentals. See the Social room Attendant for a rental form if you or you know someone that is looking for a rental. Hopefully this finds you all well and healthy. And we look forward to seeing you at the 100th Year Celebration of American Legion Cowle Post 151.

Regards,

Larry Latva – Commander
