THE AMERICAN LEGION
SYKESVILLE MEMORIAL POST 223
COMMANDER: JOHN RIDGLEY
ADJUTANT: TODD YATSKO
Message from the Commander
Effective September 7th the Commander has announced that the American Legion Sykesville Memorial Post 223 Lounge is CLOSED until further notice.
The section of the building that contains the Lounge has suffered severe damage to the roof truss system and at the advice of our insurance partner and a qualified structural engineer the Lounge is CLOSED until the necessary repairs can be made.
During this time, the Legion Hall will be open and will be used in place of the Lounge for daily business. Food and Bar service, entertainment events and other functions normally held in the Lounge will be provided in the Hall. Your Post leadership, our facilities manager, our staff and volunteers will make every effort possible to provide all of the services you would enjoy if the Lounge was available.
The unfortunate situation occurs at a time when the post financial condition barely meets expenses and losing the regular Lounge revenues will only worsen our financial health. You are urged to continue patronizing the post and share our comradery while supporting the Post.
Repair work has started on the lounge.
Contracts were signed with the trades. Controlled de-construction of the damaged areas has begun to include removing cieling elements, insulation, plumbing, fire suppression water pipes, electrical and other. Enigieering designs are ready and building permits are being reviewed by the county so that orders may be placed for replacement trusses and related materials.
Work planning and cosntruction scheduling is underway but not finalized until the permits are approved and material deliveries from the vendors can be committed. We will have more detailed information on the timing when the repair contractors complete their preparation work.
Lottery/Poker machines have been relocated to the entrance hallway between the Lounge and the Hall.
Please look to our Website, Facebook page and Constant Contact eMail messages for updates as we work through this situation.
Temporary repairs to prevent further damage were made on Saturday 9/23
All current Hall Rental Contracts are being honored.
