Thanks to everyone who came out to support our rockin’ Beatles show on Saturday, June 22nd.  We had 125 people singing, dancing and having fun in the Memory Hall.  Special thanks to our kitchen volunteers led by Laurette from Branch 10 who served up tasty 47 plates of spaghetti and meatballs and chili.  We’ll definitely be inviting this amazing band back to the Legion!
