*** Football Menu***
Here is our food menu for the first 4 games of the buckeye football season. Remember that this is all ran by volunteers, and due to the lack of help this year some games might not have food. If you can help out please let me know. Also we can only provide so much food so we always ask if you come in to watch the game to bring a side dish to share with people is very helpful.

Word from The Aerie President Jared Ballenger


Happy October Brothers and Sisters I can’t believe Fall is already here. Hopefully everyone has enjoyed the Buckeye Games. This month for food on October 14th we will be doing the Soup cook off, so bring in your best soup. Also happening this month is the Eagles Central Zone Conference at Heath Eagles #3723, these events are always a good time, and you can learn a lot more on what the Eagles are all about. Don’t forget we will be doing a Halloween party October 20th at our club, so we hope to see everyone there. Big things are changing outside this month with the patio improvement project finally starting. Hope everyone enjoys the new upgrades we are doing.

Autumn. That wonderful time of the year. Leaves turn to beautiful colors, and the air cools and becomes crispy. Halloween is just around the corner, bringing forth our little goblins on beggar’s night. And of course, football season. GO BUCKS!

Unfortunately, serious problems still plague our nation. Political deceit threatens our very democracy, and our constitution is under attack. Inflation is better, but prices at the grocery, restaurant and at the pump, along with higher utility bills, tear into our budgets. Many of us live paycheck to paycheck, and others are only a thousand dollar emergency away from financial disaster. Fentanyl is killing our teens by the tens of thousands. Our open southern border is now a cartels franchise, and trouble overseas continues. Crime is on the rise as our police struggle with inadequate funds and a lack of respect. And woke policies are poisoning the minds of our children.

These serious problems have disrupted our daily lives, triggered distrust in our government, created social unrest, and brought on economic resentment. Grave issues continue to isolate and divide us. Today, harsh radical views blare out by bombastic extremist groups and divisive leaders over the airwaves. A two-tiered justice system rules the land as bad guys go unpunished. Government lies have become blatant, and obfuscation is the norm.

Remember back when we were a great nation? That shining beacon on the hill? When patriotism was an honor, and we had a fierce pride in our heritage?; 

Our country remains at a crossroads. We must unite and resolve to not just cherish our freedom and justice but protect them. We can only do this collectively. With the Lord’s help, our country can again set in place the principles that once made us the envy of the world.

Remember: beneath the storm of injustice, bad government, and economic issues, we remain a strong nation. We have an opportunity to change our course and move towards recovery. Now more than ever we need to come together, as a community, as a state―as a NATION.

American Legion Post 798 continues to support the Reynoldsburg community, especially veterans and their families. If you are a veteran, help us help others. If you are a veteran in need, contact us, and we'll try to assist you. And Post 798 will as always continue to support our ongoing relationship with our Aerie 3261 brothers and sisters.
