With the year half over and about a month away from our Post’s 100 th Anniversary we
have a lot to do with little time to get it done. Remember this year’s anniversary
celebration will also be our annual picnic that we normally do in September. Currently
we have two food trucks that will be on site. One will have Polish food and the other will
have American food. We will also have the McArthur Brew House’s Fire Truck
Dispenser available during the celebration. We do have some music planned. We are
still finalizing the details.
