As Commander of the American Legion Post 12, Wickenburg, I feel compelled to reply to last week’s letter to the editor about smoking at the bar in the Legion. We recently installed an outside patio for that reason. Members have ample opportunity to approach the executive board to express concerns. The letter writer said he visited three times in three years. He could have been more proactive in non-smoking by attending our meetings and offering solutions. It is his right to drive to Peoria. Meanwhile, we here at the Legion will continue our fun activities, like Bingo, Friday night fish fry, Hurtz Donut trucks, dunking our local police into the dunk tank, and lots more coming, such as car and bike and tattoo shows. Yes, our post is busy – accomplishing – not whining.
