Chanhassen AM Legion Post 580


The Carillon plays inspirational, reverent, and patriotic music honoring the veterans’ service to our country. The existing Veteran’s Carillon at Fort Snelling National Cemetery was commemorated in 1986,  but has been silent over 20 years due to an excavation error in 2003.

WE NEED YOUR HELP to raise money to get this fixed.

Your Tax Deductable Donations can be sent to
