Dear Ms Lyne:

On behalf of Bert G Taylor Post 300 of The American Legion, Napoleon, Ohio and it’s Executive Board, it is my pleasure to write this letter in support of the proposal to save, renovate and restore the historic John L. Johnson auditorium and the adjacent west wing of the former school building.

We understand that the renovation of John L. Johnson Auditorium will result in the following venues being provided for the residents of Napoleon and Henry County.

  • State of the art community center
  • Cafeteria
  • Reception hall space
  • Meeting rooms
  • Visual and performing arts auditorium
  • Gymnasium

We fully support the efforts of the Napoleon Civic Center in this endeavor.  Any project that can provide a venue to bring the community together is worthwhile and it is our sincere hope that the efforts of the Napoleon Civic Center will provide the necessary funding to bring this project to a successful conclusion.
