URGENT message from the Commander
Effective September 7th the Commander has announced that the American Legion Sykesville Memorial Post 223 Lounge is CLOSED until further notice.
The section of the building that contains the Lounge has suffered severe damage to the roof truss system and at the advice of our insurance partner and a qualified structural engineer the Lounge is CLOSED until the necessary repairs can be made.
During this time, the Legion Hall will be open and will be used in place of the Lounge for daily business. Food and Bar service, entertainment events and other functions normally held in the Lounge will be provided in the Hall. Your Post leadership, our facilities manager, our staff and volunteers will make every effort possible to provide all of the services you would enjoy if the Lounge was available.
The unfortunate situation occurs at a time when the post financial condition barely meets expenses and losing the regular Lounge revenues will only worsen our financial health. You are urged to continue patronizing the post and share our comradery while supporting the Post.
Please look to our Website, Facebook page and Constant Contact eMail messages for updates as we work through this situation.
All current Hall Rental Contracts are being honored.
