Hardee R Mills Post 135

The restoration work for Post 135 is nearly complete.  Final inspections are scheduled and an opening date will be announced soon.  Please continue to support us via the gofundme link and private donations.  Replacing furniture, shelving, material supplies, and food destroyed by IRMA continues to challenge our financial capability.  Please contact any officer to find out more ways you can help us!  Thank you!

The American Legion Post 135 building located at 2296 Tamiami Trail E, Naples, FL is presently closed due to storm flooding damage from Hurricane Irma. D. Brown Contractors, LLC are retained to handle the restoration planning, permitting and construction to assure compliance and completeness. The American Legion Post 135 Board Members are closely monitoring this permitting and restoration process.  (Check this website's photo gallery titled "Irma Flood Cleanup Efforts".)

 

On April 9, almost seven months after Irma, restoration has started. All trades are being mobilized and contracts for finish work finalized. Depending upon inspections and approvals, we hope to finish the restoration by late Summer. Plans are afoot for a grand re-opening late in the third quarter of 2018.

 

Since the cost of construction exceeds the insurance payout combined with donations to date, plans for fundraising opportunities are in progress. We have a need in excess of $200,000 and are searching all avenues for a solution.

 

This Post remains on active status, and as such all dues are required to be paid to continue your active status as members of these organizations:  American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, and 40&8. If you do not renew your membership it will lapse and you will have to re-apply for membership with these organizations.

 

Dues can be sent to this building’s address, as delivered mail is being picked up each normal business day.  You will receive your new membership cards via regular mail. Please keep us apprised of your current email address and all contact information.

 

You can help to defray the costs of the extremely high insurance deductibles facing us with your donation.  Any amount will be greatly appreciated!  Thank you for your continued support!
