Every spring, the American Legion Department of Illinois 9th District and Auxiliary hosts a Post Everlasting service to honor members who have passed away over the last year. Due to the restrictions of the stay-at-home order, the ceremony was closed to members when it was held on April 25, 2019, in the Chapel at Casa Italia in Stone Park. Representing the District were Commander Dale Tippett, Senior Vice Commander Greg Jacobs, Junior Vice Commander Lorenzo Fiorentino, Adjutant Pete Hirt and Chaplain Pastor Paul D. Pfeffer. Representing the Auxiliary were President Cathy Zito and Chaplain Colinette Marshall. “Our sincere thanks to Casa Italia for allowing us the use of this beautiful setting, to pray for and remember our Legion and Auxiliary members no longer with us,” Commander Tippett said. “The Casa and the Italian American Veterans Museum have always been gracious hosts whenever we’ve called upon them.”
