Legion Holds
Santa Breakfast

The Sons of the American Legion (S.A.L.) are holding a special Holiday pancake breakfast with Santa which is open to the public on Saturday, December 16th from 8:30 AM until 11:30 AM at the American Legion Hall 122 West Palatine Road in Palatine to raise funds for Legion Family Charities.

“We are celebrating the Holidays at this pancake breakfast,” said Gerard Iannuzzelli, Commander of the S.A.L. “We will be holding our breakfast upstairs in our hall. Santa will be joining us from 8:30 AM until 11:30 AM. Children will be able to tell Santa what they want for Christmas and get a picture with Santa for $5.00 or for $3.00 with the donation of a non-perishable food item.”

The S.A.L. will be serving “all you can eat” pancakes and French toast. With the pancakes and French toast, the S.A.L. will serve sausage, scrambled eggs, fruit, orange juice, coffee and milk. The breakfast costs $9.00 for adults, $5.00 for children between 5 and 12 years old and children 4 years old and under are free.

“We are always looking for new members for the Palatine Sons of the American Legion,” said Iannuzzelli. “If you are interested in supporting those individuals who have defended our country then the S.A.L. is the organization for you. Dues are $16.00 per year or $69.00 for five years. If you have any questions on the S.A.L. or any of our activities call us at 847-359-1606.”

The Sons of the American Legion was created in 1932 as an organization within the American Legion. The S.A.L. is made up of boys and men of all ages whose parents or grandparent served in the United States military and became eligible for membership in the American Legion. There are currently 300,000 members of the S.A.L. in this country and abroad.

The Palatine Chapter holds their monthly general meeting on the first Saturday of the month at 10:30 AM at the American Legion Hall on Palatine Road in Palatine.

Adopt-A-Sailor Thanksgiving Dinner

Legion Seeks Donations
For Sailor Holiday Dinner

The American Legion Post 690 family is seeking donations for their Adopt-A-Sailor dinner which is to be held on Thanksgiving, Thursday November 23rd when sailors from Great Lakes Naval Station will come to the American Legion hall for a Thanksgiving dinner.

“This year, we are once again opening the American Legion on Thanksgiving Day to those that are actively serving our country,” said Sue Hallsten, Project Chair.  “With Great Lakes Naval Station being so close, we are bringing a bus load of recruits to the Legion and providing them with a day of thanks.”

As part of Adopt-A-Sailor, the American Legion family is asking the community to help financially support this dinner.  Checks made payable to the American Legion with a notation of Adopt-A-Sailor can be sent to the American Legion Attention: Adopt-A-Sailor 122 West Palatine Road, Palatine, IL 60067.  If requested, the Legion will issue a letter for tax deductions.

Since these sailors will not be able to enjoy the holiday with their families, the Legion will be providing dinner, a day of activities and the ability to call home for however long they desire.  “It is our goal to provide to these young men and women a memory that will stay with them their entire life,” said Hallsten.

The American Legion Family consists of the American Legion, the Sons of the American Legion (S.A.L.) and Legion Auxiliary.  The American Legion and Legion Auxiliary began in 1919 while the S.A.L. was created in 1932 as patriotic veterans organizations devoted to mutual helpfulness.  These organizations are committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.

For further information on the American Legion, Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion, any of their sponsored events or for membership write to their respective organizations at 122 West Palatine Road, Palatine, IL 60067, call them at 847-359-1606 or visit their web site at www.alpost690.us.
