Commanders Corner

Hello, to all fellow Legionnaires and Legion Family Members!
Greetings from your Post Commander.

I would like to take some time to introduce myself to everyone.  I'm Brandon Wiley.  I currently live in Dallastown, Pa with my wife Jessica and 4 children (Kylie, RJ, Abigail, and Kenny).  My family is my heart and soul.   I was born and raised in Stewartstown, PA.  A graduate from York County School of Technology class of 2004 Culinary Arts and Baking Pastry Program.   Upon graduating High School, a year later I made the decision to go into the Service.  I served in the Army in the 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, GA from 2006 to 2009.  I did a tour of combat in Iraq during OIF 7 doing many jobs from Cooking, Convoy gunner, and professional door greeter (kicked doors in).   I'm a graduate of YTI with Degrees in both Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management and Baking and Pastry.  It is truly an honor to serve you and the community.  I want us as a Legion to get back on track as to what we were doing pre-Covid.   WHO we are as a Post, WHAT we do for this Community, HOW we help our local veterans, and WHY it’s important.   We need more members to be involved and also, we need more members to be at meetings.   Meetings are held; first Tuesday of the month for Legion, First Thursday of the Month for the Son's, First Monday of the Month for the Auxiliary, and the Last Thursday of the Month for the Riders.  Last but not least.  I'm very excited to work with and serve with my fellow Legion Family Leaders of the Post.  Thank you to Commander Jerry Stenclik (Son's), President Sally Dadich (Aux), and President David Dadich (Riders) as we all have a common goal of this legion working together as ONE. Thank you each for your support.

Kind Regards,
 Brandon Wiley
Post Commander

 

Canteen Corner

Hello, and welcome to the Canteen Kitchen Corner, a spot for updated information on all things happening in the kitchen.  My name is Ken Good and I am the acting Kitchen Manager.  With the help of our directors and staff, we are revamping the current menu which will be out in the next few weeks.  Please keep an eye out on the website and facebook, for our weekend specials.  We are posting them weekly. At current, market pricing is still high and some products are not available at the moment. We do not see any short term solution so please be aware that some items are out of stock or pricing is high due to the current markets.  On a positive note we do have fish squares back in stock! Please keep an eye out for our specials and come in and take a look at the new menu. 

Cheers,
Chef Kenny G

Sons

Welcome to Fall! Fall hopefully will bring on cooler mornings and evenings so get those fire pits going! Of course with Fall comes lots of leaves falling that need to be raked. If you do that for a veteran or someone in our community, make sure you fill out a Consolidation activity slip so that can be added to the upcoming Consolidation Report. Dues for 2021-2022 are due now ($35). Remember the Legion year runs July 1 st to June 30 th , not the calendar year. If you come to our meetings, you’ll see that we have instituted an “Incentive Program” to retain and also grow the Sons at our Post. Various gift cards can be won for activities performed. Come to the meetings and find out all about it. Our meetings are the 1 st Thursday of every month at 6 pm. For the rest of the calendar year they are Oct 7th , Nov 4th and Dec 2nd .Our next “Holiday Meat Raffle” will be drawn on Sat, Dec 11 th at noon. Tickets are $5 and only 200 tickets will be sold.

Our Senior Team is 15 to 19 for players living in the Dallastown Area School District. If the York/Adams Junior Legion is nor reformed again for the 2022 season we will enter a team in the York County Baseball League. Our Seniors will play again in The York/Adams American Legion Baseball League. We are planning on having our first sign-up in November of 2021 at the Post 605 Legion Home Building. If you have any questions regarding either of our programs do not be afraid to contact me at any time.

Sign-up location is 57 West Main Street, Dallastown. Players living in the Dallastown School District are eligible to participate. Age is 13 – 19 as of May 1, 2021. The tryouts for Juniors will be held the end of March at the York Township Shryock Field on sat. & sun. The Senior tryouts will be consecutive Saturdays and Sundays for 3 weeks in May. There will be six workout days, you must attend at least 4 of the workouts to be considered for the team.
