The American Legion Post 95 Christmas Day dinner 2017 was a successful day enjoyed by many. Between diners and deliveries, 185-190 dinners were served. We thank everyone for coming and receiving a dinner.

Our heartfelt thanks to new member and “chef” Bob (and Deb) for all their hard work. Jo manned the phone calls; Lewie, Connie and the Auxiliary set up, decorated, and made pies and other edibles. Thanks to Chris Marsicano for the donations he provided along with Starbucks and Maria from Anchor Inn.

To all the workers, we truly appreciate all you have done and are doing for us. We did have some new faces and hope they return next year: Barb and Bob, Bonnie and Gene, Dixie, Mayor Mel and Matt, Diane and Christine, and Glenda. Our delivery crew braved the cold to make sure the deliveries got to their destinations

We can’t forget those great Tom and Jerrys made by Emory and served up by Mary, and our entertainment by Karen. Santa couldn’t make it this year but we had a 6-foot elf that helped with the gravy.

Great clean-up crew and the work went so smooth; we even got Andy to pitch in a little. Thanks to Piggly Wiggly for its continued support.
