American Legion Post 16


Relay for Life, April 2014


Robert H. Burns Post 16 American Legion family will again sponsor a team in the Covington “Relay for Life” event to take place at the Covington High School football field on Saturday April 5, 2014.  This years’ event is from 2 PM to midnight so we won’t have to stay up all night waiting until 6 AM to take down our tent.

So far we have Mike Peats (Legion member) and Chastity Alonzo (Auxiliary member) as Co-Team Captains, Clint Lounsbury (Legion member) and May Hartley (Auxiliary member) signed up for the event.  We are looking for volunteers to request donations for the event and also to help us work the event on April 5th.  We will set up some tents and tables and chairs and sell something good to eat.  You can volunteer your time to keep someone from our team on the track at all times, help us sell or whatever.

Again this year I have been asked to “Run a prize Bingo” for the Cancer Survivors so I will be in the Survivors tent calling Bingo.

Please consider donating to the event in the name of the American Legion team, joining the team, recommending something we can do to raise monies for the event, or just showing you support by being available to help us.  Contact any of the team members or myself at 985-502-8802 if you are interested.
