Legion Holds Lent
Fish Fry Dinners
The Palatine American Legion Post 690, Legion Auxiliary and the Sons of the American Legion are holding a series of fish fries during Lent from 5:30 PM until 8:00 PM upstairs in their family-friendly banquet hall which is open to the public at the American Legion 122 West Palatine Road in Palatine to raise funds for Legion Family Charities.
“We will be serving crunchy battered cod dinners for $11.00 for adults, $9.00 for veterans or senior citizens over 65 years old and $4.00 for children under 10 years old,” said Daphne Matthews, Legion Commander. “The dinners include a garden salad, fish, Tater-Tots, Mac & Cheese, coleslaw, fresh bread, coffee and dessert. A full service bar is available for drinks in the banquet hall and downstairs in the Legion’s clubroom.”
The fish fries will be held on Fridays during Lent. In March, there are fish fries on March 3rd, March 10th, March 17th, March 24th and March 31st. In April, the fish fries will be on April 7th and 14th.
“We are always looking for new members for the American Legion,” said Matthews. “If you are interested in supporting those individuals who have defended our country then the Legion is the organization for you. If you have any questions on the American Legion, Legion Auxiliary, the Sons of the American Legion or any of our activities call us at 847-359-1606.”
The American Legion Family consists of the American Legion, the Sons of the American Legion (S.A.L.) and Legion Auxiliary. The American Legion and Legion Auxiliary began in 1919 while the S.A.L. was created in 1932 as patriotic veterans organizations devoted to mutual helpfulness. These organizations are committed to mentoring and sponsorship of youth programs in our communities, advocating patriotism and honor, promoting a strong national security, and continued devotion to our fellow service members and veterans.
