Mayor Proclaims “American Legion Week” In Smithfield

Earlier this week, Mayor Andy Moore signed a proclamation honoring the 100th Anniversary of the American Legion and recognizing the week “which includes March 15-17 as American Legion Week” in the Town of Smithfield.

The proclamation identifies the organization “comprised of nearly 3 million men and women who have served their country with honor during one of the wars since the 20th century.” It also calls upon “all citizens, companies and organizations to join with us in commending the good works of this organization as an expression of appreciation for the wartime and peacetime services of our Legionnaires.”

Mayor Moore presented the proclamation to Smithfield Post 132 at their meeting on Thursday, March 14th. Moore thanked the Legionnaires “for their service to our country while in the military and for their continued service to our community.”
