The Drive-in was packed last weekend with the entire Legion family there to get ‘er done!  Great job to all that attended and from the photo’s on FB it looks like you had a blast.

The Italian festival is this weekend and the American Legion has decided to block our parking lot July 29 -31 for Legion and Mason members only. If you have time please come down and help us it is going to be very hot this weekend so if many people can come down and help no one person will have to stay out in this heat.  I will bring down a popup tent to keep us out of the sun.
