More than 70 vets enjoyed hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, salads, cole slaw and more, all prepared by the Legion volunteers.

They also enjoyed live musical entertainment from Wax R Back.

“The band has been doing this for over 25 years for the vets,” Ladies Auxiliary member Carol Corbett said, “and they love them.”

“Every year we enjoy giving back to our veterans,” she said, “and they enjoy coming down ... for a day out. They leave with a gift from us and a smile on their faces!”
