Thank You to all who donated items and spent time packing, labeling care packages to send to our deployed troops! We were able to pack and ship 15 boxes to 5 deployed personnel over the weekend. They should arrive in plenty of time for Christmas and have enough to share! We have two members currently deployed as well as two sons/grandsons of our members. We appreciate all those who were involved. -Cmdr Melissa

We had a great turn out of our Legion family at the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony. After Incoming Cmdr Melissa Fowle and Post Chaplain Mike Brenner laid the wreath at the Tipp City Veterans Memorial, The Legion Riders led the parade right behind TIpp City's Finest (police escort) followed by our color guard and a few WWII vehicles, then the Band, Scouts and Emergency services. The ceremony was well done led by Monroe Twp Trustee Bill Cox, Cmdr Bob Steggeman and Auxiliary President Sherrie Matthews, with Legion Chaplain Mike Brenner and Auxiliary Chaplain Marlene Shook. Jr Auxiliary members were handing out poppies and laid the wreath at Maple Hill cemetery. Soup and Sandwiches were provided at the Post following the parade by 2nd Vice Cmdr Matthews and the Prater family and many other Auxiliary members. And, the weather was perfect! Thank you to ALL who helped make this Memorial Day remembrance a success.
The Frank E Robinson, American Legion Post 586 presented donations to three area charities on Tuesday February 28, 2023. Every year Post 586 makes donations to local charities that provide services to veterans, individuals and families in our area, along with charitable programs sponsored by the American Legion. This year we selected the American Legion Gifts for Yanks Program, since they provide services, equipment and other amenities needed by our veterans in VA hospitals. The Miami County Hospice was selected, because of the comfort and support they provide to local individuals and families in the most trying of times when comfort and understanding are critical. This year the Post is again sponsoring scholarships for our veteran member’s sons, daughters, grandchildren and great grandchildren. These scholarships will help them to continue their education and become productive members of our communities.

The Kroger Family of Companies is committed to community engagement, positive social impact and charitable giving at the national and local levels. Every community is unique, but the common goal is to partner with the neighborhoods they serve and help the people there live healthier lives.
One of the ways in which they do this is through the Kroger Community Rewards program. This program makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day. Once you link your Card to an organization, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Shopper’s Card. Our Post is now part of their network. Here’s how it works:
If you need any assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
First of all, on behalf of the Commander and Exec team we would like to thank you for your faithful membership to the American Legion and Tipp City Post 586. Your membership in the American Legion is vital locally, for promoting patriotism, love for country, respect for the flag and honoring local veterans. Your membership helps the post and district to sponsor young Men and Women to participate in the best Boys and Girls state in the country. This year at Post 586, we awarded Six $500 scholarships to deserving young men and women pursuing higher education. In addition, by being a member of the largest veterans organization, you are a critical part of creating and maintaining a strong voice for veterans issues at a national level, such as promoting better care and access at the VA and pushing for increased benefits like the GI bill.
1 July kicked off the renewal period for the 2023 membership year. Each member should be receiving mail from the American Legion National office soon requesting that you renew your membership. The easiest method to renew your membership is online. First you go to either www.legion.org and click on the renew button, or you can go to www.mylegion.org then log into your account to renew. Another option that is available this year when you renew online is that you can select to automatically renew your membership each year. This option is super easy and saves you the process of going through the renewing of your membership each year. This also helps to save The American Legion the time and money it takes to send out renewal notices each year. In addition, if you choose not to renew online you can always renew by mail or drop off your renewal at the post. Please contact our Adjutant Brian Fowle or our 1st Vice Commander Melissa Fowle for any questions concerning Membership.
Consider recruiting friends and family who are veterans as new members to promote camaraderie and increase the numbers at our post. If you recruit a new member we will put your name in as the recruiter for a drawing which is held every year at the American Legion Department of Ohio convention which gives out monetary awards.
Our post is always looking for people to assist with the many activities and events that we have going on at the post. If you are interested in helping with any activity, please contact the Post at (937)667-1995. We have a group of Legionnaires who participate in the Honor Guard/ Firing squad. They go out to the graveside services of veterans regularly throughout the year to honor their service to our country. We are always looking for Legion members to become part of the Honor Guard/ Firing Squad. We also are looking for Legion Family members to be a part of the Color Guard which presents the colors in Parades and the TCHS home football games. If you are interested in joining either of these teams please contact one of your Legion Officers or respond to this email.
For God and Country,
Legion Exec Team
