With great pride, I am happy to announce our Boy Scout Troop 60 has twice volunteered at the Contra Costa/Solano County Food Bank in Fairfield, CA, providing over 84 hours of giving back to the community. During this time of Pandemic, Troop 60 had 19 participants who sorted and bagged vegetables for inclusion in food boxes to be distributed to families in need.
Arranged and managed by Troop 60 Assistant Scoutmaster, Arup Dutta, the Scouts and parents followed all social-distancing and food safety protocols during their work sessions and had a great time in their yellow Class-B uniforms being part of a group activity as a Troop outside of their own homes and different from our normal weekly Troop Meetings on Zoom.
Troop 60 will be doing this service again on August 6th.  These activities earn service hours toward advancement and merit badges.
We applaud these activities in giving back to the community. These Boy Scouts reflect the highest ideals and standards of the American Legion. It is an honor to be the Scouting Representative for American Legion Post 246,
Alan M. Scharlach, 2nd Vice Commander

Welcome Veterans! to American Legion Post 246
The American Legion is the largest and oldest veteran organization in the world with over 3,000,000 members. 
The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veterans organization. Focusing on service to veterans, service-members and communities, the Legion evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. Over the years, the Legion has influenced considerable social change in America, won hundreds of benefits for veterans and produced many important programs for children and youth. 

Help us help our veterans join the American Legion.
