Merrick Post No. 1282, American Legion, receives a Mail/Flag Box from the Town of Hempstead
On the Night of March 7, 2013 or in the early morning of March 8, 2013, a vehicle drove through the front property of the Merrick Post No. 1282, American Legion, damaging the Post's Mail Box, which we use to store old U.S. flags that need to be disposed of.
On July 17, 2013, through the efforts of the Town of Hempstead and Post Members, a painted Mail Box was delivered to and installed on the the Post grounds courtesy of the Town of Hempstead. This mailbox was a replacement for the one that was previously damaged. Thanks goes out to the Town of Hempstead and its workers for their work in getting us a refurbished Mail Box, so that our citizens can drop of their old U.S. flags for the American Legion to dispose of properly.
