Legion’s Journal Documents Century of Service, Camaraderie and Commemoration

Any story about the 100th anniversary of Sag Harbor’s Chelberg & Battle Post 388 of the American Legion would have to be packed with names if the goal is to give credit where credit is due for the organization’s longevity, which will be celebrated by the membership at a dinner at the Legion Hall on Tuesday, September 17. So many local men and women made the post a landmark in their lives — and an integral part of the Sag Harbors community — that there’s just one way to do them all justice: publish a thick commemorative journal chock full of photos and text marking the post’s first century. The Legion has done just that. More than a year in the planning and preparation, the 182-page, spiral-bound book was put together by Legion members Robert Doty, who edited it, and Deborah Guerin, who handled the Herculean task of assembling its hundreds of historic photos; and David Nimz, a friend of the Legion with career writing experience whom Mr. Doty asked to handle the more-than-30-page historical narrative of that appears in the book.

Sag Harbor Resident Rides for Parkinson’s Research

Earlier this month, Bret Parker hopped on his bicycle in Sag Harbor and rode to Sag Main Beach, then to the Montauk Lighthouse, and back — a 67-mile training ride. It was a hot, humid day, and he felt sluggish, but he finished. There is no quit in him. Not when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at age 38. Not when, last year, he ran seven marathons in seven continents in seven days during the World Marathon Challenge.
