At the October 3rd meeting of the Scioto Valley Volunteers (SVV) Chapter, United States Daughters of the War of 1812, Commander Ron Caldwell and First Vice-Commander Ora Picklesimer, American Legion Post #363, were presented with a $100 donation check from SVV President Gail Swick. SVV members voted at a previous meeting to support the Lucasville Post as a chapter patriotic project for 2015. According to Commander Caldwell, Legion members have traveled as far as Georgetown, north of Akron and areas of Kentucky to participate in veterans funerals and memorial services. He stated that Post #363 has attended 40 funerals thus far this year. The service the Legionnaires provide is funded at their own personal expense and support of the Women’s Auxiliary.
Any veteran who has served during U.S. wartime is encouraged, and welcome, to join the Post; meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 6:30. Commander Ron Caldwell may be reached at 740-259-3985.
