SMYRNA AMERICAN LEGION POST 160 CLOSED FOR NORMAL BUSINESS UNTIL APRIL 3RD
On Friday March 20th the Mayor of Smyrna issued an Executive Order in response to the COVID-19 Virus threat. All city restaurants, bars and clubs were ordered closed. No gatherings of 10 or more people are allowed anywhere in the city.
The order remains in effect until April 3rd. At that time the order may be either extended or cancelled.
Accordingly, the Post is closed for normal business until April 3rd. Signs are posted at the entrances to the Post along with a copy of the Executive Order.
We are monitoring the national situation closely and are in touch with local city authorities. We hope to resume normal operations on April 3rd. We can't predict if that will happen.
During this crisis period up until closing, the Post was disinfected daily by staff and the janitorial service. The Executive Board also instituted a "No Touch" policy. Members and guests were encouraged to maintain "social distancing" at all times. All prudent precautions were being taken.
Protecting the health and safety of our members and guests has been our focus. We also serve the community, and it is equally important that the Post do all it can to protect our friends and neighbors as well. The Executive Board remains committed to serving, as stated in the Preamble to the American Legion Constitution, "the community, state and nation."
The Food Pantry operated by the Post remains in operation. The volunteers who staff that operation will still assist people needing food assistance. Please contact the Post Commander for food assistance.
Individual service to Veterans needing help with the VA, disability claims or other actions will continue to be helped through the Post. Veterans or family members needing such assistance should contact Service Officer Bill Lohmeyer, 678-313-9300 or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Small groups, under 10 people, may still be accommodated with meeting space in the Post if requested. There will be no service of food or beverages during such meetings or activities. Contact the Post Commander to discuss such an event.
Booking of larger events in the Ballroom continues for future dates, after the crisis is past. The Post welcomes the opportunity to serve groups with event space, food and beverage service, and other needs. Support your local Post and the Veterans served by it! To view meeting space and discuss arrangements, please contact the Post Commander.
