American Legion state officers visit local post

State Department Commander Bill Hafeman, Auxiliary Department President Jan Kintz and S.A.L. Detachment Commander David Mennel were presented with their own pair of red flannels.

On January 8, in keeping with a longstanding tradition, the Cedar Springs American Legion, Glen Hill Post 287 presented State Department Commander Bill Hafeman, Auxiliary Department President Jan Kintz and S.A.L. Detachment Commander David Mennell, with their very own pair of red flannels from the Red Flannel Capital of the World.
Every year at the annual Early Bird Dinner, they have a fine meal for those members who have paid their dues early. Invited to the dinner are the State level officers of the organization, as well as past dignitaries. After the dinner, the present and past Department officers graciously wear their Red Flannel attire and perform the chicken dance.

Several past and current American Legion commanders pose in their red flannels.
