SAYING THANKS – The Patterson, Dawson, Crawford, Arnold American Legion Post 57 of Owosso honored its members and their guests during an Appreciation Dinner Friday evening, Nov. 20, in the Legion’s Hall as about $2,000 was distributed.
“The Legion wanted to show appreciation to all of our members who help to achieve our goals and continue to be a successful Veterans organization,” said a Post news release. “Many of these members volunteered by giving of their time, their hard work and through their dedication we were able to raise money over the past year that allowed our organization to donate to several charities.
“Thanks to the members support, the Legion was able to donate to several local non-profit charities. Thank you all for giving back to our local community.”
