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.
