On April 30, 2018, Arick L Lore American Legion Post 274, presented a check to the Charlotte Hall Veterans Home to support furniture for the veterans. The money was raised at the post home in February, with donations of food by the Grill Sergeant and the ladies of the post.
The check for $3,048 was presented to Sharon Murphy, Director, at the post home. George Owings III, Maryland Secretary of Veterans Affairs, wasn’t able to attend, as he was stuck in traffic in Annapolis.
The money will be used to purchase special rockers for the veterans. As Sharon explained, these rockers are specially built to not tip over when used by the veterans.
Presenting the check to Sharon Murphy are Commander Nate Stevens, First Vice Eric Walls, 2nd Vice Rick Watson and Margit Miller, Past President of Unit 274 and sponsor of Sam Grow and his band, along with the opening James Handy Band.
