Start planning for Reno convention now

The 99th American Legion National Convention will start on Aug. 18 in Reno, Nev. But the convention's information page is up and running, already featuring resources in a range of areas to help attendees get around and have fun.

In addition to a link to the Reno-Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority, with lots of information about the area as a whole, the page includes listings for hotel assignments, rental of scooters and wheelchairs, and the planned shuttle schedule to and from the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.

Also available is information on American Legion Family Night with the Reno Aces baseball team; campground and RV parking; applications for the color guard contests; and more.

The main Convention page, at www.legion.org/convention, will continue to be updated up to and through the convention, with more resources, headlines and social media posts.
