Thank you, thank you, thank you to the citizens of Catoosa and surrounding counties! Your kindness and generous support of the American Legion sponsored Fourth of July Benefit Cookout was, in a word, amazing.
More than 1,400 pounds of ribs and chicken, approximately 60 gallons of baked beans, and 50 gallons of slaw were prepared for the event. Yet, some of you arrived only to be told not enough had been prepared. Please accept our heartfelt apology.
Many of us involved in preparing food for the occasion had envisioned eating leftovers for several days. It is evident we underestimated the compassionate nature and supportive spirit of our friends and neighbors.
Again, we sincerely apologize to those who were unable to be served, and we thank all of your for your wonderful support. It is with the help of kind and loving people like you that we will be able to rebuild our sanctuary.
