Veterans and Community Members Beautify the Montgomery American Legion Post
MONTGOMERY — Members of Montgomery’s Stout Nesbit American Legion Post 156 and members of the community gathered Oct. 13 to spruce up the post that serves as a community center in the small village.
The projects were made possible by a $4,000 grant provided by The Home Depot in Coldwater which sent several employees to help with painting, landscaping, washing tables, installing new chairs and to the construction of a new fence behind the post.
Giney Smith, chief financial officer for Stout Nesbit American Legion Post 156, said members of the post are grateful for Home Depot’s support in their efforts to spruce up the aging building, which has served as a foundation for the community ever since. the 1970s.
Smith and Stout Nesbit American Legion Post 156 Commander Gary Durbin were also grateful for the many community volunteers who came out to help.
The post is one of four American Legion posts in Hillsdale County and opens to the public on Tuesdays for a night of friendship and camaraderie.
Members also host a Sunday breakfast and monthly dinner in addition to opening their doors for fundraisers for Kidz-to-Kidz and the Montgomery Fire Department.
