    Post 285 was established in 1940. The new post home was built in 1997. Post 285 makes donations to local organizations. We have a color guard that performs services for our deceased veterans at the family’s request through their funeral director.

    The post has members who drive the VA van to VA clinics and hospitals. We make donations to keep the VA van here with the help from other organizations.

    We currently have 378 members. We are currently in search of Gulf War era, Iraq, and Afghanistan Veterans. Do you know any? Come and join one of the oldest veterans’ organizations. The post meets at 571 E North St the first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm. No meeting in July. See our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/pages/Alpost285/467501936644765?sk=info&tab=pag...
