American Legion Dewey Lowman Post 109

A PICTORIAL HISTORY

OF DEWEY LOWMAN POST 109

 

American Legion Dewey Lowman Post 109 was founded in 1933. This page and those listed below contain  a  pictorial history of recent Post 109 events.  It is the intent of this Post Historian to also include past history as I can find and document it.  Each event has a number of pictures.  Some only a few and others many.

If you have comments about, or would like to add comments or additional pictures to these events please send an email to the post historian at:  Cyclops@AmericanLegionPost109.org

As of March, 2018 all new photo albums are being uploaded to Facebook. The old system of editing, resizing and posting photos to this website was very time consuming. Facebook allows us to simply choose the photos and upload them so we can post them within a day or two and the pictures are a higher quality.
