The New Falldin Post home pictured represents an investment by the Post in the sum of approximately $85,000. It has an auditorium, three game rooms, a kitchen and a club room. About one-fourth of the members of the Post are Columbia Heights residents. The aim and purpose of the Post is to eventually make this home available as a center for the extensive youth program that is to be developed. This is the only Legion building in Northeast Minneapolis. At this time the Post sponsors a speed skating team, an eight team bowling league and will be in a position to expand all their efforts in building around this community center. Dedication of the new building Post No. 555, 3141 Central Ave. N.E. will be held Tuesday, February 1 at 7 p.m. For the program dedicating this new building Governor Freeman will be the honored guest along with Mr. and Mrs. John Falldin.
