Post 47 Pint Night
February 23 @ 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The American Legion Ravalli Post 47 is hosting a Pint Night fundraiser on Sunday, February 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Bitterroot Brewery with live music by Steve Winkler, 50/50 raffle, and silent auction. Funds will be used to help support their sponsored community programs (Scout groups, Bitterroot Red Sox, Boys State).
Come enjoy a brew and live music and help support these community programs as well! The American Legion Post 47 is a small but mighty not-for-profit veteran organization in Ravalli County located at 322 S. 2nd Ave in Hamilton.
The Post just celebrated its 100-year anniversary as the first Post chartered in the Bitterroot Valley after WWI (December 13, 1919). The Post is very active in supporting the community. They sponsor the Bitterroot Red Sox baseball team (which is the only youth baseball program in Montana – the team won Regional Championships 5 of the last 6 years), three local Boy Scout and Cub Scout troops, a teen Venture Group; they render military honors for 10-15 veteran funerals annually in the Bitterroot and Missoula, they teach American flag etiquette at local schools, visit 40-50 veterans living in the local assisted living centers, post 1100+ white crosses on veteran graves at Riverview Cemetery every Memorial Day, and conduct Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies. Additionally, Post 47 gives annual scholarships for high school juniors to attend Boys State and Girls State government leadership immersion programs, hosts the Legion Auxiliary Program and monthly Veteran Benefits Advisor sessions at the Post.
A new roof is needed on the old Post building which will cost $25,000. Help Post 47 continue the important community sponsorships that we have done for the past century by attending the upcoming fundraiser.
