Chaplain’s Corner For April 2020.

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

As we all are praying for this Virus to clear up in our Country and we try and be as safe as possible and all are somewhat back to a normal life, take care.
Maybe this is a note to let us know that we need to clean up our ways and give thanks for what we have and each other.

God Bless and pray that we will see each other soon.

Chaplain, Earl Hamilton (209) 606-4525

Commander’s Corner for April.

American Legion Logo


I don’t know when we can start meeting again, until we get the all clear concerning this virus. Our State Commander has directed all Posts to stand down and all of us to maintain at least 6 feet of distance away from each other due to the virus situation.

There will not be any Friday dinners until they tell us we can open again. We still have to complete our Post By-Laws and our elections for Post Officers.  Hopefully we can start meeting again sometime this coming month.

I would like to remind all of our members to reach out and call our members and see how they are handling this isolation in-home. There is no schedule of events until we have the all clear.

The following stores have set aside hours for seniors:

Costco: Tues and Thurs 8-9 AM

Dollar General: 8-9 AM daily
