American Legion post 135

Commanders Corner


From the commander of post 135 Leroy Springwater,

It is good to see all of the post officer’s & Ladies Auxiliary working together to make our post run like it means something as part of our lives. I would like to thank all of the people who help in all the events we have had in the past three months & I would like to thank all the members who have contributed in helping the post in some special events that we’ve had. We need to work together to keep our post in good standing & to keep our post members and family in our prayers. Keep up the good work! As most of you may know we have changed the newsletter to quarterly instead of monthly to help the post save a little money it may not seem like much but it does add up and we thank you for your understanding. However in the meantime if you want to keep up with everything post 135 does you can like us on Facebook just search for Oklahoma American Legion Post 135 or you can keep an eye out for our website it will be updated soon. Both the Facebook page and the website will have up to date information on what’s going on day to day for the American Legion the Ladies Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion.

Ladies Auxiliary

The Auxiliary’s annual chili supper and pie auction was a huge success. We will be able to send four girls to Girls state with the help of donations from the Elks and four anonymous donors. Thanks to everyone that made this possible. The legions monthly birthday dinner for February and March went well. Charley provided venison for February’s and in march everyone enjoyed ham & all the fixings. Everyone in attendance had a great time! Cars started driving into the parking lot of Post 135 early for the annual Easter egg hunt. The brisk morning air didn't stop 200-300 children from jumping out of cars and trucks with their Easter baskets ready to hunt over 2000 candy filled eggs. Thanks to donations, this year four lucky children who found the “golden eggs” received a bicycle and helmet. Several children received a bag of toys and all the children received a lot of candy. Thanks to everyone who helped make this event a huge success. Ladies, the state membership chairwomen has extended the deadline for submitting recipes for the state wide cookbook. If you would like to submit recipe/recipes, please drop them off at the Legion, mail them to Ada at P.O. Box 471, Tahlequah, OK 74464, or email Let’s pull together and have Unit 135 well represented.


S.A.L.’s make donation to local community member. During the record flooding in December 2015 Rita Hix lost her home to flooding. Although we couldn’t replace the home and all the memories it held. We decided to make a monetary donation.
The S.A.L Sargent at Arms Matthew Pence is getting ready to golf in the Special Olympics 47th annual Summer Games. This years games will be held in Stillwater, OK May 11-13. Matthew won the bronze medal in 2015. He’s been getting as much tee time as possible to make a run for the gold. Good Luck Matthew!!
