American Legion Post 231 Challenge

$11,650 of $231,000 goal

Raised by 30 people in 14 months
In 2015 the spring rain were more severe than in years coupled with a tropical storm,  the waters of Lake Texoma went over the spillway.  The American Legion Post 231 sits on the shore of Lake Texoma and was twice flooded by the rising waters. The Post was  demolished.  The Post is a center of activity for fundraising to help the Veterans and citizens of the area.  After insurance and  fundraising we are only halfway there. We are now asking for help.    All funds are deposited directly into The American Legion MIA Post 231 bank account to be used on the rebuilding of the Post.

In response to Mr Reese.
The last update said we are working in the SBA loan we received $25k and are working on getting them to release the remainder of the funds. I do not know who you are getting your information from but the date we have only received $50,000. We have been trying to satisfy their request for documentation on a matter of issues relating to us having a lease on the Corps of Engineers like along with other documentation. I hope it is not your intention to insinuate that we are misappropriating funds or something shady is going on. But our monthly meetings of the American Legion we discuss and have on hand all the records of funds received an expanded if you were in the area please plan on attending our next meeting on the second Saturday of March at the VFW post 7873 on Lake Texoma and I will show you firsthand exactly what has come in and what has gone out.
