Take the time to watch this video from Charlie Daniels band (be sure your speakers are on and make it full screen and High Def - use the gear icon at bottom right of video if you can). I think you'll be impressed. Also the link below has significant information about the Pledge to our Flag.
What do YOU do when the National Anthem is sung? The video shown here was published on Veterans Day, November 11, 2015. It provides great insight into how we as citizens are supposed to respond when the National Anthem is heard. Click here to watch the video.

Our Youth Programs
Click on the team picture above to display additional pictures of the team during one of their playoff games.
Both our Junior and Senior league teams ended strong this past year and this season's baseball banquet was well attended. Our FY-2016 season has ended and both teams did extremely well.
(Our Senior Team is depicted here).
Our Banquet next summer (for our 2017 season) is scheduled for June 17, 2017 at the Waccamaw Shriners Club. Plan now to attend and have a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000. One hundred eighteen (118) individuals/business participated in this year's banquet and it was well attended. During our drawing, the last five (5) individuals/business standing, after 113 tickets were drawn opted to donate half of the proceeds back to the Post and split the remainder of the pot. Thank you for your support of Post 111's American Legion Baseball.
See our Legion Baseball page for additional information on this valuable youth program that is sponsored by Post 111.
Post 111 sent 10 boys to Palmetto Boys State
Thanks to the support from our community, Post 111 again sent 10 young men to Boys State this year. The list of attendees and community sponsors is posted here. The picture above is from Sunday, June 5th. Four of our ten young men, along with some of our Legionnaires, met at the Conway Walmart prior to heading up to Boys State. Way to go guys. I'm told they had a great week and they will be talking with us at one of our meetings soon.
(The picture above is used by permission and was taken by Carole of AmeriChes Photography - thanks for the excellent picture).
Once again we reached our goal of sending ten (10) young men to Palmetto Boys State. (See our list of attendees here). It costs $300.00 to send one boy to Boys State. We weren't able to do this all by ourselves and we say a special thank you to those businesses who helped us reach our goal. Click on this link to view our 2016 Palmetto Boys State Sponsors. To sponsor a youth, simply send an e-mail to our Boys State Director by clicking here and then send a check for whatever amount you can to the address below. As we are a 501(19) non-profit organization, all donations are tax deductible and will be used to sponsor a young man for our 2016 Palmetto Boys State program:

This photo shows teens from all over the United States gathering in Indianapolis for the National Oratorical Contest.
The annual Oratorical Contest presents participants with an academic speaking challenge that teaches important leadership qualities, the history of our nation's laws, the ability to think and speak clearly, and an understanding of the duties, responsibilities, rights and privileges of American citizenship.
The contest starts at the local level and works up to the National level. Winners of the higher levels can win significant scholarships that can be used for participation in any college of their choice.
Post 111's local competition will be held in January 2017. As in the past, the competition will be held from 6:30 p.m. until completion and all participants are requested to be there at 6:00 p.m. Check out our Oratorical Contest page for additional details.
Post 111 has a New Permanent Home
After nearly 40 years, American Legion Post 111 has acquired our own property. The Post sold their previous property sometime back in 1975 or 1976 and has rented space at various businesses since. Most recently we met at the Conway Golf Club at 400 Country Club Drive near the Conway Post Office.
Beginning with our September meeting, we will meet at our new property and we hope to have our grand opening with a family barbecue and social during our October 2016 meeting.
Our new location is known as the old Pully Bones property located at 3003 Highway 701 N, Conway, SC 29526. Click here for property and renovation information. Click this button to see a map to our New Home.
Our future plans are to build a new building on the property in the next couple of years that will support Conway's large community of wartime veterans.
Come help us grow
