Following the parade on July 4, another of our traditions has been to hold a picnic/barbecue at the Legion Hall. This year, close to 100 Veterans of Post 66 and Post 8870 including family and friends, gathered to enjoy great food and comradeship. A few of us who arrived a bit late had to hunt for a place to sit among all the early arrivals.
Among those in attendance, was an honored guest, District 1 Commander Doug White. It is always good to have Commander Doug with us.
The menu included grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and pulled pork sandwiches. To accompany all of that delicious barbecued meat, members brought a variety of salads and side dishes and for dessert lots of cookies and a variety of cakes.
It would be difficult to individually thank all of the folks who brought and cooked food and who stayed after the event to clean up, but we certainly thank everyone who participated in whatever manner. It only works if everyone pitches in.
Now all that was needed was fireworks to end a perfecr Independence Day celebration on a perfect July day.
