As per the latest Health Orders the Legion will be closed December 23rd until at least January 18th 2022.
We will be open tomorrow, we will have Bingo so please come join us, have a little fun and wish your comrades a Merry Christmas. It will be a while before we can get together again so we truly hope to see you tomorrow.
If you can't make it down we wish you a Merry Christmas and we will see you in the new year.
Additionally, if you purchased tickets for the New Year's Eve potluck dinner come into the Legion tomorrow so we can refund you. Otherwise you will need to wait until we're-open again.
Take care, stay safe and remember to be kind.
Your Legion #56
Well next Saturday, December 18th Meat Draw we are having an Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest. So how ugly can it get, the uglier the better! You don't have an ugly Christmas sweater, no problem, use one of your ugliest regular sweaters and decorate it yourself. That's what Jim is doing, he told me, so right from the horse's mouth. No talent, no problem, guaranteed to be uglier😁😂😂😂
So folks come on out next week and have a bit of fun with this contest and the Meat draw.. Who knows you might win a turkey too.
Don't forget the Meat Draw tomorrow too. Lot's of meat, lots of fun. Hope to see you there.
