Post 25 Update


American Legion Fort Scott Thompson-Harkey Post 25 is in 2nd place in Second District membership. As of January 28, 2021, Post 25 has 101.9% membership with 93 members. This makes the FOURTH consecutive year that Post 25 has reached 100% membership and continuous membership growth.

Personal Note

This week marks Myra and my last full week as Fort Scotians. We close on our new Joplin home and our current Fort Scott home this week.  As a reminder, we will continue to fulfill our Kansas Legion obligations through May, when new Officers are installed. We thank everyone who has supported the Fort Scott American Legion and our community programs these past four years

Volunteer Needs

I have had several requests for the Fort Scott American Legion to participate in a baseball tournament. However, we need a Baseball Chair to pull together a team. If you have played baseball in any capacity and would be interested in organizing a Fort Scott American Legion baseball team, please let me know. Fort Scott has had a reputation as an American Legion baseball powerhouse for many years.

February 1. Post 25 meet and greet starts at 630 pm in Memorial Hall.

February 1. Post 25 general membership meeting starts at 7 pm in Memorial Hall.

February 11. American Legion Auxiliary Unit 25 meets at 600 pm in Memorial Hall.

February 11. American Legion Post 25 Color Guard meets at 715 pm in Memorial Hall. All Post 25 Legion family members can join the Post 25 Color Guard. This includes Auxiliary and Sons of the American Legion Squadron members.

Bring a new or prospective member to tonight’s meeting. There are several hundred Veterans in Bourbon County who have never been asked to join or who let their membership lapse. Our Post can only grow and thrive with your support.
