THB 187 POST EVENTS - PAST AND PRESENT
100th Year Anniversary, September 26, 1919 – September 26, 2019
T.H.B. Post 187 is honoring 100th annivcrsary dates in 2018 and 2019. The first three Elmhurst World War I residents, Ernest Timrott, killed in action June 3, 1918, Marines; Richard Hintz, killed in action July 19, 1918, Army; and Kinsley Buck, killed in action June 19, 1918, Marines; had 100 year anniversaries in 2018.
In 2019, the 100th anniversary birthday of the Post will occur. T.H.B. Post 187 was named after the three men, and the Elmhurst Legion was chartered on September 26, 1919.
Please look for updates in The Sniper and on the www.americanlegionthb187.org website for upcoming memorials and events that may be planned.
As always, we are looking for event ideas and volunteers for this year's upcoming 100th anniversary. If you are a family member of a past Auxiliary President or Post Commander, we would especially appreciate your contributions. They can be pictures, letters, military papers, anything that will add to our 100 year history. This will hopefully be an evolving project througout the year to show what makes up, and some personal history behind, our Elmhurst American Legion Post.
We ask Post members, past Officers, and the public to provide assistance as well. Stop by the Post or call us at 630-833-7800.
2019 Post Officers, Auxiliary Officers, Sons of Legion Officers, and Corporation Board Members and President.
