An article in the June 6, 1933, Kerrville Mountain Sun tells of some of the work of Garrett-Baker and Louis Halpern American Legion Posts.
Mrs. Tinney’s veteran husband had recently passed away. Although she had a small one room house (lot and house cost $75) in Oak Park (close to the Legion Hospital, the small one room house needed a lot of work.
Members of the Garrett-Baker and Louis Halphen posts donated their time and money to add another room, new flooring, roofing, windows and a door. All of the materials were purchased by the two American Legion posts and their Auxiliaries.
Mrs. Tinney, her family of five children and her father-in-law now have a very nice house.
