Volunteers at the American Legion Pig Roast, August 2018 | Jane Boursaw Photo

The annual Legion Hall Pig/Turkey Roast is coming up this Saturday, August 17, 4:30 to 7 p.m., at the Old Mission American Legion Post 399. The cost is $12, and kids aged 8 and younger are free.

The Legion Hall is located at 4001 Swaney Road in the village of Old Mission. It’s on the left just before you round the corner to go to Haserot Beach.

They’ll be cooking up their usual yummy roast pig and turkey, as well as baked beans, potato salad, applesauce, corn on the cob, rolls, cherry and apple pie, and refreshments.

Take-outs are also available. Call (231) 223-4433 on the day of the roast to order. Hope to see you there!

Don’t forget – the Legion also hosts community dinners on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. Appetizers are served at 6 p.m., and the dinners start at 6:30 p.m.

Everyone is welcome – Legion Hall dinners are not just for veterans – and it’s a great way to catch up with your friends and neighbors.

We’re working on a story about the history of the Legion Hall, so stay tuned to the Gazette for that. In the meantime, here’s a flashback to the building that was in that location before it burned down and they built the new Legion Hall.
