100th Year Anniversary, September 26, 1919 – September 26, 2019


This section is to develop an album picture history of the Post for our anniversary. While we could take the 80+ Post Commander pictures we have in our hall and put here, we thought we'd try to personalize it with pictures that you'd like to share. It could be from the new building in the 50's, carnivals or Christmas parties from the 60's, fish fry from the 70's, parades, burgers and corn on the cob cook outs, bowling team photos, or any other Legion event.

Please submit any pictures you have with a short story line and we will try to post it here. Please keep the picture size under 450 KB so the web site will be able to handle it. Auxiliary and Sons members are encouraged to contribute too. Send to the web editor (or by mail to the post- copies only, we cannot return material) at with a reference topic so we know it is not spam. Suspected spam will be rejected. 

Thank you! T.H.B. Post 187


In 2019, the 100th anniversary birthday of the Post occurs. The first three Elmhurst World War One residents, Ernest Timrott, Marines, killed in action June 3, 1918; Richard Hintz, Army, killed in action July 19, 1918; and Kinsley Buck, Marines, killed in action June 19, 1918. T.H.B. Post 187 was named after the three men, and the Elmhurst Legion was chartered on September 26, 1919.
