CressonaAmericalLegion event

Cressona American Legion has several events planned in the coming days and weeks.

Trivia Night will take place on Saturday, May 21st, from 7pm to 9pm at Legion Hall, Front Street 1. Anyone can join.

Cressona American Legion Auxiliary Unit 286 is hosting the Little Miss Poppy / Poppy Queen event. All girls under the age of 18 are invited to attend this event. Donations to Poppy, an auxiliary unit, are being collected at this event. Donations must be submitted to the Cresona American Legion by 6 pm on Friday, May 27. The girl who collects the most donations will participate in the Cresona Memorial Day Parade on May 30th and will be selected as Little Miss Poppy (0-12 years old) or Poppy Queen (13-18 years old). All girls collecting donations are welcome to attend the parade. For more information or to collect donations to Poppy, please contact

The anniversary parade will be held on Monday, May 30th. The parade will take place at 9am at the HYDRO parking lot. The parade starts at 9:30 and ends at Cresona American Legion Plaza with services and light meals at the American Legion Dining Room. Everyone is welcome. If you or your group are interested in attending the Memorial Day Parade, please email us at for information.

Post will host its second annual flag retirement ceremony at Friedensberg Fish and Games on Stone Mountain Road 169 in Pine Grove at 5 pm on Saturday, June 11th. After the ceremony, everyone is invited to the corps post for a light meal.

Do not throw torn or tattered flags into the trash. Give it to the American Legion. Soon, outside the Cresona American Legion Post 286, there will be a drop box for the “ready to retire” American flag on b3. Until then, you can either put the flag in a bag and drop it at the entrance of the post, or bring it in during normal business hours. Thank you for helping “Old Glory” ensure that she receives the appropriate treatment at the end of the flight time.

Thank you if you could put our information for these upcoming events for our nonprofits. Feel free to email me if you need anything else. I will deliver it to you as soon as possible. Also, your newspaper is gracefully invited to our parade, where you can witness the crowning of our Little Miss Poppy or Poppy Queen. Also, welcome to the flag retirement ceremony. We are a small corps compared to some corps, but we hope that all these events will continue for years to come. Thank you again.
