NATOMA — Combining time, talents and tenacity, American Legion Post 109 Commander William Workman, Laah Tucker and Terry Tucker volunteered in writing grant requests for urgent repairs to the American Legion Thomas J. Hogan Post 109 Hall in Natoma.

The deteriorating building formerly housed WWII B-29 pilots at the Walker Army Air Corp Base.

A recent generous grant of $10,000 from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation, Logan, will be combined with four other grants in the volunteer work effort for upgrades to the building.

The Legion Hall is the center for organizing 22 annual projects by the American Legion Auxiliary for veterans, active military, their families, children, youth and the community.

A July 4th project provided Independence Day greeting cards mailed to active military men and women serving around the world.
