PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION OF THE AMERICAN LEGION
For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the following purposes: To uphold and defend
the Constitution of the United States of America; to maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one
hundred percent Americanism; to preserve the memories and incidents of our associations in the great wars;
to inculcate a sense of individual obligation to the community, state and nation; to combat the autocracy
of both the classes and the masses; to make right the master of might; to promote peace and good will on
earth; to safeguard and transmit to posterity the principles of justice, freedom and democracy; to consecrate
and sanctify our comradeship by our devotion to mutual helpfulness.
American Legion Post 89 was in need of flag cases for our Ceremonial Flags. The Post reached out to the Pella Area Quliters Guild to see if they were willing to make these flag cases for the Post. They agreed to do this and at the monthly meeting on September 25th they presented these ten Flag cases to the Post.
