The legend behind the Crosslake-Fifty Lakes American Legion
Alvin Elmer Potz, the oldest son in his family, planned to take over his family’s farm on County Road 3 in Fifty Lakes. But in 1950 he was drafted to the Korean War, losing his life in the fight in April 1951. He was 24 years old.
Today Alvin’s memory is honored as the namesake to the Crosslake-Fifty Lakes American Legion Potz-Heartland Post 500.
