       Parades are always fun.  Why not come to this annual Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 28th starting about 10:00 a.m.  While here could you also assist Post 501 in their Poppy Distribution Drive -- which is a fund raiser for our veterans particularly those who find themselves in the VA hospital.  We need several vibrant, smiling Legionnaires to get dressed up in their patriotic finest and with a bowl of poppies gladly offered to the public.  You will be well rewarded for taking an hour or two out of your day to help veterans in need.  NOTE:  This will include marching along side the American Legion sponsored car, making distribution of poppies and collecting donations.  You are welcome to march entire parade route or only a portion of it.  

 For details and if you would like to attend, please call Post 501 at 244-7716.
