Legion bingo will benefit scholarship

NORWAY – The Stone-Smart Post, American Legion, and Auxiliary are joining posts across the country to raise funds for the Legacy Scholarship Fund Run.

As a side effect of the Iraqi War, many children of active duty personnel are members of single-parent families and in many cases the chances of attending college are diminished.

The American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund Run will help provide a full college education for the children of military personnel who died on or after Sept. 11, 2001.

National Commander Paul Morin has asked American Legion posts across the country to hold a fundraising event to raise $250,000 for the fund.

At its June meeting, the Stone-Smart Post voted to hold a special bingo at the Legion Hall on Sunday, July 22, to assist in raising the funds. The Auxiliary voted to have refreshments available. The doors will open at noon and the bingo will start at 1:30 p.m.

Besides the bingo there will be a pull tab game and 50/50 ticket sales. All the proceeds will be forwarded to the Legacy Scholarship Fund.

The games are being co-chaired by Past Commanders Lee Millett and Arnie Pendexter, assisted by Commander Ralph Millett and Past Commander Randall Henley. Past Commander Fred Burbank has charge of the pull tab game. The Auxiliary treasurer, Rose Moulton, and Past President Joyce Clifford will take care of refreshments.

For more information, call Lee Millett at 743-2565 or Arnie Pendexter evenings at 743-9349 or days at 890-2447.
