While Veteran’s Day is always a special occasion, this year is looking to be especially illustrious as Guilford’s own American Legion Post #48 celebrates its 100th anniversary.

The anniversary will be marked by a veteran’s appreciation dinner on Friday, Nov. 8 at the community center, with any veteran and all members of the public welcome. On that day, the post is planning to hand out a commemorative booklet that will include messages of support and thanks from individuals and businesses all around the community.

“It’s mostly a way for members of the community to...support the American Legion,” said local historian Tracy Tomasselli, who is helping organize the anniversary celebration.

Tomasselli said she also sees the booklet as a way for people to remember or honor loved ones who are veterans. People and businesses can pay as little as $10 to help sponsor the booklet, or purchase space—from business card size to full page ads—in order to pay tribute to the veterans who have contributed to the community.

As a historian, Tomasselli has also been doing research into the storied history of Post #48, whose members have done everything from planting trees after hurricanes to providing scholarships for high school students.

“It’s a way veterans can serve not just in war but in peace,” said Tomaselli

Money raised by the booklet will go toward funding American Legion programs, Tomaselli said.

Forms are available in Town Hall for anyone interested in purchasing an ad or sponsoring the booklet, or for more information, call Ron DiMartino at 203-453-6256.
