My name is Ed Messer, Commander of The American Legion Hardee R Mills Post 135. This post has been here in the community since 1945. We are a Veterans organization with our mission to help our veterans and community. Our goal is to continue to support them, however In order to do that we need to rebuild our Post due the devastation from Hurricane Ian. Our refrigeration and kitchen equipment as well as dining hall furniture was under water and need replacing. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated.
