I hope this finds everyone well with the situation we are all facing. If you know any of our members in need of help please contact me or any officer, and we will do our best to provide help. You can also leave a message on the Post phone as we check it several times a week.

Thank you and be safe.

I would like to give another big thanks to the American Legion Riders Post 223 for donating $1,800 toward the purchase a much needed new beer cooler for our bar.

From the Commander:

On behalf of the Post 223 family, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the volunteers who gave their time and energy to make Saturday's chicken dinner as successful as possible. We tried something we had not done before. It was a challenge, and we learned a lot of lessons to apply to future events. I also give thanks to the community for coming out and supporting your local American Legion. We were not as ready for the overwhelming support that we received, but it was inspiring. It was good to see new and familiar faces, though hidden behind masks, on a such a nice day. Next, it was an honor to be able to provide dinners to some of our local on-duty Sykesville PD and Carroll County Sheriff's Deputy brothers and sisters that afternoon. It was a small gesture to let them know we thank them for their service. Lastly, I want to thank everyone for your patience during this time as we prepare to open up again in limited capacity.

See you soon,


Commander John Ridgley

Hello Legion Family,

This Saturday we held our first "Day at the Races" event.  While we may not have had the large crowd we were hoping for everyone that attended had a great time socializing and enjoyed some good food.  I would like to thank all the volunteers that supported this event to make it a success.  A special shout out to the event coordinator Mr. Glenn Cartaxo.
