It sure feels like fall is approaching this morning, but it is a welcome coolness since the summer has been so hot and dry.
And, along with the fall comes Legion Week, celebrated the week of the September 16-22, although this year we are downsizing the weeks activities here with just the pickerel dinner on September 22 , held in conjunction with our elimination draw and music to entertain our guests.
The pickerel dinner will consist of pan-fried pickerel, oven-roasted potatoes with sour cream if desired, fresh cooked sliced carrots, tossed salad, a lemon dessert, and of course tea or coffee – all for the low price of $15, tax included.
There will be two sittings, at 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. and the tickets are on sale now at the Legion bar during bar hours, Tuesday to Saturday, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
September 9 is the jam session for this coming month there is a good time to be had by all who enjoy listening or dancing to old time music, fiddles, guitars, piano playing & other instruments & singers as well are here for your enjoyment.
French fries are available for sale during the day.
The executive is looking into something new starting in September ... if this develops we will look forward to seeing you come in and participate in the new activity.
Watch for more information in our newsletters.
We would like to thank everyone who helped out with the steak barbecue; those who did the barbecuing, the waiters and waitress who delivered the steaks to the customers, and to the customers themselves.
Without you, it would have been an effort in futility. We do appreciate seeing you come into the Legion, and please, come again!
As well, we are looking forward to again seeing the Lions club come in for their monthly meetings and suppers.
Welcome back beginning on September 11.
It takes a lot of time and money to keep a business going these days, with the price of utilities, and not just businesses, but our homes as well.
Everything keeps going up in cost and we are all finding it more difficult to make ends meet, but we are all hoping that we can keep our Legion branch open for many years to come.
It is a symbol of what some of our citizens went through during times of war and it isn’t only for veterans, but for the public as well to come in and see what we have to show you.
There are lots of photo albums of olden days, a fleet of warships and planes - models of course donated by one of our mail delivery men, Bob Marks, who has done a lovely job of building and finishing them.
They are all on display for your viewing pleasure. See what they looked like, a lot different than today’s ships and planes.
We also have some uniforms that were worn by the troops, and just lots of things to see.
All in all, it is a nice, warm, dry spot to come into on a rainy day or even a hot dry day – actually any day is a good day to drop in and see what we have on display.
We look forward to having you drop in for a visit, or perhaps see about renting the hall for a function that is too large for your own home.
We seat at least 120 for a sit-down meal and the building is licensed for approximately 163.
It’s a great place for a wedding party or stag and doe, birthday parties, Christmas parties or whatever party that you need it for with a licensed bartender on duty and catering available at your request.
