American Legion District hosts stirring service

Officers of the American Legion Department of Illinois, 9th District, and 9th District Auxiliary, held their Post Everlasting ceremony at Casa Italia on March 23. The ceremony is held annually in remembrance of 9th District Legion Family members who died over the last year.  Representing the 9th District Legion were Commander Greg Jacobs; Sr. Vice Commander Lorenzo Fiorentino; Jr. Adjutant Pete Hirt and Chaplain Dale Tippett. Representing the 9th District Auxiliary were President Nancy Stevens and Chaplain Colinette Marshall. The event was hosted by members of the River Grove American Legion 335 and Veterans of Foreign Wars 5979. The ceremony took place in the lovely little chapel at Casa Italia, the home of the Italian American Veterans Museum. “Our sincere thank you 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,” Fiorentino says.
