American Legion Post 26
211 South 7th Street
Mayfield, Kentucky

On December 10th, 2021 a tornado devastated our town of Mayfield, Kentucky, along with areas in Graves County, the county in which Mayfield is located. Most of us didn't realize the extent of the damage that dreadful night. However, the next day driving around revailed just how much of our community had been destroyed, along with many lives lost. For many people, their lives will be forever changed. The clean-up is still in process, and the rebuilding of hte town is in progress. This will take years in the makeing. As an organization we have lost our American Legion Historic building, which was nearly 100 years old.

This letter is bening sent to all Americn Legion Posts who sent financiel assistance, along with anyone and everyone whether and organiation or and individual who has sent money or gifts.
