September 9, 2004
Archer Carlson is pretty sure Lisa Robertson is the first woman to join the American Legion Lloyd Beaton Post No. 228. “We’ve never had any female member to my knowledge, at least none that I can remember,” Carlson, a longtime legion member, said. But he knows for a fact Robertson is the first post commander in the history of the Baldwin legion. “She should be commended for her efforts,” he said. “She’s been a member for several years and she wants to serve. She’s interested in veterans’ affairs, community service and child welfare. She does a very good job as post commander.”

As football season openers go, it just doesn’t get much better than Baldwin High School’s 34-7 shellacking of the Gardner Trailblazers Friday night in Liston Stadium. “That was a big win,” said coach Mike Berg. “The execution for a first game was unbelievable.
