Welcome to the Blandford, Massachusetts American Legion Post 356 Homepage

We meet on the first Monday of every month at 6:00 PM at VFW Post 6645 on Route 20 in Russell, Massachusetts. New members are always welcome. Information on membership requirements can be found by clicking on the link in the menu at the left of the page.

We have a new mailing address. Please send all correspondence to PO Box 326, Russell, MA 01071.

This year's second annual Hot Rods for Heroes car show was once again successful. In addition to local cars we had entrants from Connecticut and New Hampshire. Luckily the rain held off until late afternoon. We have already booked the park for next year's show. For more car show information click on Hot Rods for Heroes in the menu at the left.

We look forward to seeing you at our hamburger stand at the Blandford Fair on Labor Day Weekend. We serve the best hamburgers at the fair as well as hotdogs, chili dogs and a variety of hot and cold beverages. Proceeds go to our scholarship fund.

Post 356 sponsors the Blandford Memorial Day Parade and participates in the Russell parade. We can often be seen at Chester on Track and in the Veteran's Day Parade in Westfield.

If you visit the Agawam Veteran's Cemetery be sure to look for the stone that our post donated to the Memorial Path.

ATTENTION CURRENT MEMBERS: If you have any photos that you would like to see added to the website please let us know. Digital photos can be emailed to us (click on email in the menu at the left) or put on a CD or flash drive and given to the commander at the next meeting. Printed photos can also be given to the commander. Put them in an envelope clearly labelled with your name and we will scan them and get them back to you unharmed!
