New American Legion Sign

NEW SIGN DONATED: The family of the late Gerald Ernst recently used $2,000 in memorial donations from Gerald’s funeral to give to Bellevue American Legion Post #273 for a new sign for the Legion Club. The Sons of the American Legion Squad, as well as the American Legion Auxiliary, which had not been represented on the old sign, were added, along with new LED lights. Chuck Ernst, son of the late Gerald and Delores Ernst (pictured at right), said his mother and father, who were both active lifelong members of the Bellevue Legion and Auxiliary, would have wanted to donate something to the civic organization, and this was a way to pay a tribute to them. Accepting the donation are Legion officers Leonard Ernst (left) and Chuck Kueter, commander of the post.
