One local veteran is organizing a new chapter of the Sons of the American Legion out of the Taylorville Legion post. The organizer will be hosting an informational meeting for any son, grandson, or great-grandson of any veteran that is or was eligible to be a American Legion member next week.
Bruce Hallam is putting the Sons of the American Legion group together. He says he wants to continue a group that was originally started in Stonington.
Hallam says the group will aid Christian County American Legion posts in multiple ways.
The informational meeting will be held Wednesday, November 8 at 6:30 p.m. at the Taylorville American Legion Post 73 at 110 West Franklin Street in Taylorville.
