American Legion Chapel Hill Post 6 has again made their post home available to the community through the East Chapel Hill Rotary for their Teachers’ Supply Store program. Robert Oakes, past post commander and member of the East Chapel Hill Rotary, served as coordinator for this annual project.
One of the core values of the American Legion is service to our youth. Chapel Hill reports that they are proud to be able to provide their post for a special community service event to help local teachers.

A special thank you and recognition goes to Robert Oakes and the Chapel Hill Post for pulling it all together and making this event possible. This is only one example of district Legionnaires making a difference in their town. Read the rest of the story.
