Legion members raise the roof in Lanesboro

When Deane Benson, Commander of the Lanesboro American Legion Post #40 in Lanesboro, Minn. had an idea to make needed improvements to the outdoor area of the legion, it started something bigger.

The upper level of the walkway leading to the top floor entrance and to the outdoor space for customers had been three separate and descending metal roofs, which allowed for rain and melting snow to run off, creating ice in the winter.

For safety reasons, Benson felt something should be done, so he talked with Doug Johnson. Johnson took the ball and ran with it, planning and designing the project, putting together a team of legion members, and working many hours himself.

The legion members that worked on the project are Deane Benson, Doug Johnson, Jim Haugen, Robert Thompson, Ron Utley, Jerry Post, Dave Rahn, and Autumn Johnson.

Last fall the old metal roofs were removed and a new roof was built over the area. This year the group installed car-siding, lights, a ceiling fan, and an area to easily dispose of recyclables.

Dan Anderson used his electrical knowledge to draw plans for the outside lighting, which creates a very nice ambiance in the entire area.

Huntington Electric, including Troy Huntington, Matt Lawstuen, and Jim Hanson installed the outside lighting, which looks fantastic.

Johnson came up with the idea to hang a variety of flags underneath the roof along the wall and they had all of the flags they needed except a Coast Guard flag. It just so happened that Haugen’s son-in-law was coming back to this area for vacation so he brought them a Coast Guard flag to complete the line-up.

When the project was complete, the group had created a veranda, a deck, and a patio. The area is much more conducive for relaxing and talking with friends and with new outdoor furniture, the area seems to draw customers and legion members to head up to the patio and take a seat.

“It turned out way better than I thought it would,” says Johnson. Thompson states “people like it”, noting that many people “would rather sit up here than downstairs”, especially during Buffalo Bill Days when the there is a DJ upstairs.

Haugen, who was injured on the first day of the project and received six stitches, didn’t let it slow him down, and said “we are pretty proud of our work” and adds that the project “turned out absolutely w .....
