To all Members and Friends of Henry J. Sweeney Post #2
I would like to extend an open invitation to all qualified Veterans of past military actions throughout our Nation's history, to avail themselves of the opportunity to join the approximately 1500 Legionnaires, Ladies Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion at our Manchester facility to help carry on and support the long and proud traditions of the American Legion.
Like all veterans organizations throughout the Country, we are experiencing declining numbers as the Greatest Generation, Korean War and others who served in that era pass on to the Eternal Post. Although those individuals can never be replaced, it is possible to add newer and younger members who more recently served. For a large membership is beneficial to all concerned, as it shows unity and solidarity to our elected representatives when considering veterans benefits, most notably VA medical and hospital issues and much more.
Sweeney Post offers a wide variety of social and otherwise local volunteer programs including but not limited to, weekly dance offerings, monthly special musical presentations and dinner/dance events, the State's most successful American Legion baseball program, pool tables, cribbage leagues, outdoor patio seating, full kitchen facilities and immaculate smoke free function hall and canteen area. Anyone who has an interest to inspect our Post, is welcome to stop by at any time and expect a warm welcome. Members who may be considering a transfer from other veterans organizations or Legion Posts, new residents or if you just have a question, we urge you to stop by.
I look forward to meeting any and all.
Alan E. Heidenreich
God Bless all who have served and continue to serve and God continue to bless the Greatest Country in the world!
