History of the American Legion in Adams County: Celebrating 100 Years

Presented by the Adams County Historical Society

This program will honor our veterans as ACHS features speakers from our American Legion posts of Adams County: Louis Jones from the Albert J. Lentz Legion Post 202 - Gettysburg, Larry Altamose from Legion Post 32 - Littlestown, and Eugene Shaffer & post historian, Janet McGuirk from the Ira E. Lady Legion Post 262 - Biglerville.

Speakers will explain the history of their post, when and how it was formed, and how the organization contributes to the community. There will be two World War II veterans from each post as honored guests, as well as an Honor Guard to present the colors.

The program will begin at 7PM in the auditorium of Valentine Hall on the United Lutheran Seminary campus. It is free and open to the public.
