September 2020


Corona virus update, September 2020: 

Elmhurst Post T.H.B. 187 leadership, in accordance with the National and State Legion Department letter below,
regrets to inform all associated with the Legion that we suspended operations at the Post per below through September 30, 2020. Some services have re-started and are outlined below.   
Cafe 187 dining room is back with daily lunch specials from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm! We reopened Cafe 187 on July 7, 2020 with our lunch service. We will be following all guidelines recommended by the CDC in regards to social distancing and cleaning procedures. 
Saturday Lunches have returned on July 18, 2020, in Cafe 187 from 12 noon until 2:00 pm.  
The Legion looks forward to serving you in Cafe 187 again. If you are not comfortable with dining in, carry-out of the entire menu is still available.


It is with regret that due to the corona virus remaining at moderate to rising levels, we have decided to postpone this year's 2020 Military Ball until further notice. Our primary concern is members heath risks and potential disease transmission by attending such an event. Please check back for updates of any change in status.

All other upcoming events are still canceled until further notice. This includes but is not limited to:
We want to thank all of our Patrons for their continued support during this uneasy time.
