Sympathy is extended to the families of two Lilly natives who recently passed away. One was Catherine (McMullen) Sanker and the other was Walter “Butch “Kiel. Butch was a son of George and Blanche (George) Kiel and resided in Portage. He was a Navy veteran.

Both of these clubs have both post and social members and do a lot for communities they serve. They help victims of disasters and severe illnesses, provide scholarships, support local sport programs, help many school programs, provide Christmas treats for children, donate to veteran homes and hospitals and many other generous deeds. Your few dollars a year in post or social dues or occasional visits helps them meet their mission. Join up!
