The Old Mission Legion Hall will once again start hosting their twice-monthly dinners, after a year off during the Covid-19 pandemic.

These community dinners – all are welcome – are a valuable fundraising tool for the Legion to help Michigan soldiers and their families. Learn more about the history of the Legion Hall (including the fire that destroyed it in the 1990s) and how they benefit veterans here .

As in “The Before Times” (pre-pandemic), the dinners will be held at 6:30 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, with the first one on July 20, 2021. You’re welcome to gather at 6 p.m. and chat with friends and neighbors.

As with a lot of places, costs have gone up and they are doing the same. Dinners are now $15, with any leftover dinners going for $10. They will also be seating six at a table instead of eight.

They are also NOT serving “family-style” or buffet dinners yet, so for the time being, each person will take their plate up to the kitchen counter where the cooks will serve the food. Desserts will be on the table as they’ve always been.

As for masks, they are going with the honor system. If you are fully vaccinated, masks are not necessary. If not, they ask that you wear a mask while visiting and moving about the hall.

The Legion Hall – officially known as Old Mission American Legion Hall Post 399 – is located in the village of Old Mission at 4007 Swaney Road, on the left just before you round the corner to Haserot Beach.

Follow their Facebook page to stay in the loop, or call (231) 223-4433 with any questions.
