Canby American Legion lounge is closing
To the editor:
By now you have most likely heard that the American Legion lounge in Canby is closing. It is the lounge, not the post. The closing is temporary. The lounge is losing money at an alarming rate, so the executive board decided to close it until we can figure out how to reopen with volunteer help.
The activities of burger night, Sunday family breakfasts, bingo and monthly family dinners as well as the traditional seasonal functions (kid's parties for Halloween, Christmas and so forth) will continue.
In addition the post will continue uninterrupted service to the community. Activities like the flag retirement ceremony, honor guard in our community parades and other patriotic celebrations will continue to be supported. As will service and support for our veterans.
As you read this discussions are underway about reopening the lounge on a limited basis with volunteer help. Please be on the lookout for an announcement.
