The Sons of the American Legion Squadron 86 in Blaine have done some amazing things for your community this year. Every year we have a hamburger and hotdog stand in front of the war memorial at the Blaine police station on Blaine’s old fashioned 4th of July. This is our main fundraiser for the community Thanksgiving feast, while 100 percent of the proceeds go to our veterans, their families and the community.
This year’s Thanksgiving feast at the senior center served 646 meals, and the community volunteers came out of the woodwork to support a great cause that is free to everybody. We delivered 245 meals to shut-ins and volunteers transported several back home when they were done with an awesome meal and great company.
I would like to thank the city of Blaine and the new director at the Blaine Senior Center Kathy Sitker for working with me to make it all come together and to make sure nobody goes hungry in Blaine on Thanksgiving.
