The American Legion is turning 100 and Post 560 in Garden Oaks is planning to celebrate, with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner set to attend.
“The American Legion Family of Houston is excited to share both the legacy and the vision of our organization,” Post 560 Commander Tony Moreno said. “We’ve done a lot of good, and intend to keep doing it for a second century.”
Veterans, family, friends and the community are invited to an anniversary reception March 15 from 5-6 p.m. at the Garden Oaks American Legion Post 560 at 3720 Alba Rd. The Sons of the American Legion will host its regularly scheduled steak night immediately following the reception.
Turner will present Moreno a proclamation declaring March 15, 2019, as American Legion Centennial Day in Houston.
