Lucien Berry Post 115 The American Legion



Dickson County Christmas Parade is Friday, 1 December.  Post #115 members and families will meet at Dickson Middle School at 4:30 pm (1630) to decorate the float and move to the start point.  (The parade ends at the Middle School.)  


Robert Wenck, with his lovely wife Lou Anne on his left, is recognized for his long, and continued, leadership to Lucien Berry Post #115 by Commander Tyer and the 16 November Post meeting.  Congratulations, Robert!


What a GREAT Veteran's Day Parade we had on Saturday (12 November)!

We had a full trailer and two full trucks!


Post 115 will meet on Thursday, 16 November, at 1830 in the Crosby Building, Dickson County Fairgrounds. (4th Thursday of the month, except for November, because of Thanksgiving.) Adjutant Tyer will be there at 1800.  Come by and chew the fat!


The 2023 Dickson County Fair was very successful for everyone involved.  We had terrific support from Girl Scout Troop 642 and the Dickson County High School JROTC.  The funds we raised will support our high school scholarship programs and numerous Veterans' Support Programs like Wounded Warriors, Fisher House, Operation Comfort Warrior, and the Nashville and Murfreesboro VA Christmas parties.


Lucien Berry Post 115 congratulates LILLIAN PAYNE from Dickson County High School (DCHS) and JACKSON SHAW HAYES from Creekwood High School (CWHS) on their selection as POST 115's SENIOR SCHOLARS for 2023.  They each received a check for $500 to pursue their educational studies.


Our JROTC cadets recognized for SCHOLASTIC EXCELLENCE in 2023 are HAILEY DRAKE from CWHS and KATIE CROSBY from DCHS.  SAMARRAH ALMENDAREZ (DCHS) and ADELYNE ALVARADO (CWHS) are recognized for MILITARY EXCELLENCE for 2023.  Each of these cadets received a certificate and a medal/ribbon which they will wear on their cadet uniform.  In receiving the award, they became eligible for the $3,000 Frederick Bowling Scholarship.


HOUSTON RILEY and KONYEA LANG from DCHS and HAROLD LUCAS and DREW ODOM from CWHS are our 2023 Delegates to American Legion Boys State.  They, and other boys from across the state, will build and run an artificial "state" at Tennessee Tech in Cookeville from 21 to 26 May.  This program is a noteworthy increase to their life-experience and a permanent addition to their professional resume.


To the wonderful patriotic citizens of the Dickson Community.
