On September 1st, our annual Post Family picnic was held at Chet Hobert Park. Over 100 members of our Legion family attended. Our volunteer chefs Bob Heflin, Jane Heflin, and Jim Wink provided another delicious picnic dinner of hamburgers, hot dogs, coleslaw, corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, potatoes, and desserts. Nalls Farm Market donated the sweet corn for the picnic again this year.
Over 170 members of our Post family attended the picnic. It was a beautiful afternoon and a great way to celebrate the end of summer with friends and family.
Most of the Post’s delegates to the 2010 Virginia Boys and Girls State attended and gave brief presentations on their experiences. These young men and women represented us well. They also strengthened the belief that our community and country will be well-served by this next generation.
