On Thursday, October 17, the Estes Park Newcomers Monthly Meeting was held at American Legion Post 119, and we used that opportunity to highlight a donation made to the Legion.
Last year the Newcomers highly successful “We Believe” project during the holiday season, as well as some other special events, resulted in a surplus of funds, which the Board voted to broaden the Club’s community outreach. The American Legion is working on a capital campaign this year to upgrade their historic post facility in order to better serve local veterans, youth, and the entire community. The kitchen, restrooms, parking, and overall structure are in need of renovation, and the Newcomers are proud to participate!
