Tonight’s dinner is the last one for a couple of months and was well attended. 130 attended though 109 had RSVP’d ahead of the dinner. Still, everyone was accommodated.
Our Commander Carla Tappainer is stepping down after leading Post 1776 for the previous three years. We’ve seen many changes at the post including the hiring of a professional General Manager in Linsey Green who is doing a fantastic job.
Our kitchen is profitable and the comments we get here through the web site and through Google all point to one of the best places for Veterans and their families to come to for some fellowship, good food and music.
Carla was honored at the dinner tonight by the City of Apple Valley (Mayor Mary presented the honor) and by Beyond the Yellow Ribbon for her selfless service to Post 1776. We will miss your leadership Carla but we know you’ll still be around.
We wish you all the best in your role leading the Legions 3rd District. All the best.
You may not have known this… but the American Legion Post 1776 was one of three finalists for business of the year with the Apple Valley Chamber of Commerce. We did not make it, Uopnor won the honor this year yet it was still an honor to be considered.
Here a few photos of the event! We all had a good time and our Post was well represented.
A lot was going on at Post 1776 today!

May is Poppy Month – The red poppy is the official symbol of remembrance for the American Legion Family—we distribute and wear the poppy before and on Memorial Day to honor our nation’s war dead. Every year the Auxiliary purchases poppies that are made by veteran’s and distribute them for donations that support the welfare of veterans, active military and their families.
Our ladies will be in the Legion throughout the month of May — this is an American Legion Family Program so please be generous!
On Friday and Saturday – May 18th and 19th we will be in the community —- we need volunteers from the Post, SAL and the Legion Riders, get a friend or spouse to volunteer with you !!!
