On Memorial Day, TOMORROW, Monday May 25, the American Legion Post 254, 6648 Taneytown St. is having a curbside boxed lunch fundraiser to save their post.
They have been closed since March and hope to reopen with permission in mid-June.
From noon to 3 p.m. adult lunch is pulled pork for $8 and kids hotdog lunch is $5. Lunches include sides (cole slaw (from the Olde World Restaurant), pork and beans, chips and cookies/snacks for kids.
All money raised ahead of time went to pay for the food and supplies allowing the post to keep 100% of the donations on Monday to pay the rent and reopen as if the pandemic didn't shut them down.
