The bake sale is always a hit with shoppers offering Friends-made baked goods. Cookies, muffins, breads, candies, peanut crisps, cakes, cupcakes and fudge will be offered on the 3 days of the sale.
Friday is soup day at the Legion Hut! Pots of tasty and simmered soups will tempt you to take away or to taste at the Legion hut!
Our famous bag sale takes place on Saturday, March 19! For $2 you can fill a brown grocery bag with all the books you can fit in it.
