Last November, on Veterans' Day 2014, this blog composed a tribute to Dorchester's August-Vanek American Legion Post #264.
This May, Dorchester's Legion Post will celebrate its 95th anniversary.
And for 95 years, the Legion and its members have been a key part of community life in Dorchester.
But now this blog has learned the members of Dorchester Legion members will be holding a special meeting this week to decide the future of the Legion's club.
According to information e-mailed to the Times, the Legion is nearly out of operating cash and will soon be forced to close its clubhouse on Dorchester's main street.
Our source told us that date could come within 40 days.
We hope the community and the Legion members will rally to find a way to keep Legion Post #264 an important part of Dorchester's main street and a central part of our village life.
