BRISTOL - Forestville American Legion Post 209 says it is moving to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.
Brian Avery, commander of the post, said the membership voted unanimously Wednesday night to make the move to the church at 355 Camp St. Avery said the post membership wishes to thank Asbury United Methodist Church for hosting it for the past four years.
“Asbury will forever go down in 209’s history books as the place where the post started in 2014,” said Avery. “We cannot thank you enough for your hospitality and generosity. However, Gloria Dei has offered better opportunities to advance this post forward. We are excited and look forward to our new partnership, which will allow us to continue and enhance our mission of serving the community and our veteran causes. We want to thank Pastor Joanna and the parishioners for allowing us to call Gloria Dei home.”
Avery said people should look for “some great things” coming out of Post 209 in the future.
