The Patriot’s Day Dinner this last Monday night was a gathering to remember the lives lost in the attack on Sept. 11, 2001 and to show our support and gratitude for our first responders. We were honored by the presence of Mayor Jan Hill, Police Chief Heath Scott, Fire Chief Brian Clay, Al Giddings and members of our police and fire departments, dispatch and state troopers.

The dinner could not have happened if not for the help of the Legion, Sons of the Legion and Auxiliary members. A special thanks to Tony Strong who worked for two days preparing the meal and to Strong brothers Jim, Jack, Ralph and Ralph’s daughter, Marsha. Once again, the Strong family came together to support the Legion and our community. Thanks to all.
