The Legion Branch 509 had their annual Patio Opening Party. Attendance was overwhelming as attendees mingled, ate BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, purchased 50-50 tickets as well as tickets for the silent auction. The band “Garage Project” had everyone rocking to both cover and original tunes. Nancy Mattis and her helpers released individual balloons with the names of legion members who passed away in the last 10 years. A real solemn moment. Nancy also presided over the unearthing of a 10 year old time capsule that was buried back in 2006 which provided many funny comments. thanks to all that made the day an enjoyable one.
