Since our charter on August 10, 1920, our American Legion Post has been welcoming VETERANS from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country and Community. Our mission is to implement the goals, aspirations, dreams, peace and blessings for our country, friends and families embodied in our preamble below.
ATTENTION POST 221 MEMBERS!
A $5.00 per capita tax increase was passed at the Baltimore National Convention. During the September 2015 Post 221 general meeting, the membership voted to increase Post 221 membership dues from $35.00 to $40.00, in order to cover the $5.00 per capita tax increase. The dues increase will take effect with the January Renewal Notices. We are encouraging all members to pay your membership early (no later than January 1, 2016) to avoid the dues increase until next year. Additionally, the cost of a Paid Up For Life (PUFL) will increase effective June 1, 2016. PUFLs purchased prior to June 1st of next year will pay the current rate. If you've considered becoming a PUFL member, do so now.
