Repairs Needed For Scottsdale Legion Building

The home of Scottsdale’s American Legion Post 44 is showing its age and Commander John Hyde is requesting help.

“Overall, our 21-year old building is in good shape, but we do have some mechanical issues which must be addressed,” says Commander Hyde. “We’re appealing to the community to lend us a hand so that we may continue serving our 1400 members and families.”

Problems surfaced in June when one of the four rooftop air conditioners stopped working. The unit was replaced at a cost of more than $7,000 and the contractor warned the other three units would also need replacing in the near future.

Inside the building’s lounge and bar area, the island cooler and a bottle cooler both need replacing. The kitchen is in need of a new convection oven and additional storage for dry goods is needed to take advantage of bulk purchasing.

To address these issues, the Post’s executive board created a Capital Asset Replacement Fund and is soliciting help from members and the community at large.
“If anyone would like to donate, I’d welcome a call,” says Commander Hyde.

Hyde can be reached at 480.941.0130.

Located at 7145 East 2nd Street, the Scottsdale American Legion is a non-profit 501-C-19 organization. Donations may be tax deductible. For additional information, visit www.post44.com.
