St. Libory American Legion Celebrating 100th Anniversary
The American Legion Henry Schmitz Post 683 in St. Libory is celebrating its 100th anniversary.
This Post was formed in 1920 with a charter being granted on September 20, 1920. Henry Schmitz was chosen as the namesake because he was the first local person to be killed during WWI, thus the name of the Post “The American Legion Henry Schmitz Post 683”. The Legion received their charter in 1920, but the 100th Anniversary celebration was delayed because of the pandemic.
Please join us on December 5, 2021 for this momentous occasion. Local area Legion Commanders and government dignitaries will be in attendance. The event starts at 2:00 p.m. with a short program starting shortly thereafter. The event is scheduled to end around 5:00 p.m.
You’ll be able to enjoy some food, drinks and camaraderie and will be able to honor our veterans and celebrate our Post’s 100 years of existence. During this celebration we will be honoring Post 683 members with 50 and 60 years of continuous membership.
The American Legion Henry Schmitz Post 683 honors all veterans, especially those killed in action. It is through their sacrifices that we are able to enjoy the freedoms we have today.
