A recent gift to the Spring Valley Historical Society is a book, "Service Record, World War II, Spring Valley & Community." On the first page it reads: "Everett H. Hale, Post #68 American Legion. The charter for the Post #68 was given under the hand and seal of the National Commander and duly attested by the National Adjutant at headquarters in Indianapolis, Ind., the 27th day of August 1920..." and included a list of 58 charter members. It told the history of the Legion Dugout which was the subject of an earlier column. Hardscrabble Hides & Furs now occupies that spot on East Courtland Street.
