American Legion Thanks Supporters - May 2018


    The Grand Island Post 1346 of the American Legion sends their thanks to all who supported the Mother's Day Hanging Basket Plant Sale. Your support allows the American Legion to continue work for veterans and the community.
The work on the DeGlopper Memorial Park Expansion is progressing slowly due to the lack of funding. The group was anticipating some funding from the Greenway Commission but was disappointed when they did not approve the grant. On to plan "B", the committee will continue to hold fund raisers to complete this worthy project to completion. The public is welcome to purchase a paver in memory of a Veteran here. The officers and members of the American Legion thanks all for their support!




American Legion Donates Nine Flagpoles - May 2018

Placing one of the 25' flagpoles at DeGlopper Memorial Park.

Group of DeGlopper Memorial Park Expansion Committee members and local veterans.

    The DeGlopper Memorial Park Expansion took a big step forward on Tuesday, May 8th as nine flagpoles were installed on the park grounds. Eight 25' flagpoles will fly service flags. The one 35' center flag will fly the American Flag. The park expansion had a major letdown recently as the Greenway Commission did not choose the project for one of their grants. Everyone is invited to participate by purchasing a paver. The paver can feature a family name, a memorial to anyone, not just veterans. Paver's are $175 and make a wonderful family legacy. See paver form.

Veteran of the Month - Allen Prame - March 2018

Sen. Chris Jacobs introducing Veteran of the Month Allen Prame.

    Senator Chris Jacobs Veteran of the Month Program began in the fall of 2017. On Thursday, March 8th, Sen. Jacobs came to the Golden Age Center and presented a proclamation to Grand Island American Legion member Allen Prame as the March 2018 Veteran of the Month. Allen served in the U.S. Navy from 1948-1952 as a machinist in post WWII Europe. When he returned, he was a member of the Teamsters for 40 years in the trucking business. As a past commander of the American Legion, he has devoted countless hours at the annual Hanging Basket sales and Patriot Day Poppy fundraiser. This past fall, his self invented, donation receptacles enhanced the visibility to the public during the fundraiser. Allen has been married to his wife Goldie for 65 years, soon to be celebrating 66!
