Legion grateful for community support

To the editor:

Last Sunday American Legion Post 343 held their annual Chicken BBQ at Legion Park. Many events were taking place in surrounding communities on this day and attendance at the Legion’s event was expected to be lower than usual.

However, many members of our community and the surrounding area made the effort to support our event and made it successful. Individuals attended other events but made the effort to return and attend the chicken BBQ. This shows the great support given to our local organization and makes the hard work of the volunteers appreciated.

A special thanks to the Legion’s Auxiliary, Boy Scout Troop 361, and the members of Legion Post 343 that volunteered their time to work at our event. Thanks again to all that participated to make our annual event successful.

Richard Stolz

Commander, Post 343
