The American Legion’s Illinois state convention was held in Springfield, at the Prairie State Convention Center July 13 – 17.
District Chaplain Bob Meier and past 22nd District President Phyllis Meier were both delegates to the convention.
Many new changes were made for the coming year, the ball is starting to roll for the up coming birthday of the American Legion (2019).
This will be one great celebration for all our veterans, more information will be available as things progress.
Bob was selected Chaplain of the year for the fourth year in a row, a great honor. He was also elected 5th Division Chaplain for the 2016-2017 year.
Phyllis served on a number of committees and had a great time with the ladies of Legion Auxiliary. May God Bless the USA and all our veterans.
