American Legion Post 129

April 8th, 2014 to April 13th, 2014

Kevlar for K9's was a Success!!!

Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal! All it took was a 50/50 raffle, one night of steak bingo, one Chinese auction, a Low Country Boil dinner, Dinner at the Knights to Remember event, Fish Sandwich Lunch last weekend, a ton of Jell-O Shooter sales, anonymous donations for our wonderful members, and finally a donation for the Auxiliary for us to reach our goal.

Once again this proves that when we work together this Post can accomplish amazing things!!! It took less then one month for us to reach our goal! You guys are awesome!
