Flag Status Alert: United States Flag and Maryland Flag Are at Half-Staff
As a mark of respect for the victims of the senseless acts of violence perpetrated on Thursday, April 15, 2021, President Joseph R. Biden ordered the United States Flag lowered to half-staff effective immediately and returned to full-staff at sunset, Tuesday, April 20, 2021. As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff as well. No flag may be higher than the United States flag.
|Post 223 Community, Friends and Family,
Like so many other people and businesses, we were adversely affected by COVID-19 pandemic over the last year. The closing of our operations and subsequent restrictions for so long impacted our revenue and also the ability to qualify for a much needed loan. While we have been fortunate to remain open, we are graciously asking for your help.
We are in dire need of immediate repairs, replacements, and renovations to our Post 223 Hall. Particularly, we must replace our leaking roof that has been damaged in recent storms. Heavy rains continue to cause leaking and flooding, which has also resulted in water damage to areas of our Hall. At the time of this publishing, rain water is seeping through our Lounge drop tiles. Properly repairing the roof will enable Post 223 to replace our underperforming Air Conditioning units with larger, more powerful A/C units to accommodate a comfortable atmosphere for our guests during the hot summer months. Following roof repairs and A/C replacements, we will be able to focus on repairing internal damages to the Hall and long-awaited upgrades and renovations.
We understand the impacts that the pandemic has had on many in our community. We appreciate your generous donations as we continue to improve our facilities in order to again provide a positive place to hold gatherings and events for our veterans, their families, and our community.
Updates will provided throughout the progress of the projects. Any funds not used for repairs and renovations will be directed to our local veterans and veteran and youth programs. We are extremely humbled and grateful for your support.
If you prefer to mail your donation, please send to:
