Annual July 4th Celebration at the American Legion Post 397

The American Legion Post 397 will hold it’s annual July 4th celebration from 4 to 6 p.m. All friends and families are invited to enjoy a lunch of hot dogs as we wait to see the fireworks at Barnes Park, just across the street.

Enjoy Friday Dinners at the Post on June 14, serving Chicken/Chile Verde Casserole. This will be the only dinner this month.

There are no American Legion or Auxiliary meetings during the month of June, as our year comes to a close. We will meet again in July. Please consider joining the American Legion or the Auxiliary. The Legion Post will meet June 19th at 6:30 and the Auxiliary will meet June 12th at 5:30. Join us as we welcome new officers.
