Many people didn’t think we’d ever make it to this point, but the sale of the current Post and the purchase of the new Post are both final. As trying as that was at times, that was only a small part of our journey. We are not finished, yet. We are now working on renovating our new American Legion Post. If all goes according to plan, we should be moved into our new home within a few months. We can use volunteers to help us during this process. There is a lot of work to do. Please contact our office at 507-252-1659 and ask how you can help.

We are still waiting for the signing date to arrive. We are scheduled to sign paperwork to finalize the sale of the Legion Post on July 17th. That same day, we will finalize the purchase of the new Post building. We are in talks with contractors about renovating various parts of the new post. It is an exciting time for us. If you would like to be a part of the design and decoration discussions, please contact our office at 507-252-1659.

We are still waiting for the signing date to arrive. We are scheduled to sign paperwork to finalize the sale of the Legion Post on or about July 17th. That same day, we will finalize the purchase of the new Post building. The Post has received $50,000 of the non-refundable earnest money from the buyer. Soon, we are going to have some in-depth planning discussions regarding the new building. If you would like to be a part of those discussions, please contact our office at 507-252-1659.

We are still waiting for our sale to be final. The signing date has been pushed back about 1 month. As we stand now, we will finalize both the sale of the Post and the purchase of the new building on or about June 29. We will host the State Convention in our current building in mid-July. We plan to move within 60 days after the convention. Any rumors you hear about the current owners of Kings Crossing being given more money by us are unequivocally false. There has never been a change in the original purchase price. Please help us in stopping the spread of false information.

There is nothing new to report. We are still looking forward to finalizing the sale of the current Post and the purchase of the new building by summer. Also, we are hosting the Department Convention in July and would move sometime after that to the new location.

We are still in a holding pattern. The sign company that owns the billboard above our building and the buyer of our building are working with the city to get approval to attach a sign to the hotel that will eventually be built on the site of the current Legion Post. There is still a contract for the buyer to purchase our current building. The purchase is set to be finalized on or about May 17. We still have a contract to purchase the King’s Crossing building and will finalize that purchase on the same day as the sale of the current Post. We know there are a lot of rumors being spread, but the Legion DID NOT give King’s Crossing an additional $50,000 (or any additional money). We still plan to move sometime after hosting the convention, but before the end of August.
