Four years after a financial crisis nearly closed its doors, Roberts Creek’s “Little Legion” is celebrating that it’s still here. The branch is holding a 70th Anniversary Party on August 12, in conjunction with Creek Daze, with an invitation to the community that helped to save it.
From noon to 6pm festivities include a cake-cutting ceremony at 1pm, activities for the kids, BBQ by donation, with local musicians providing entertainment.
From dire straits to going concern, Branch 219’s turn-around is credited to hardworking volunteers and community support of its offerings, including wildly popular Brain Freeze Trivia and Tuesday music jams.
Keeping their sights on another 70 years, executives say their next step is improving aging infrastructure while involving its younger members, so it can long be at the heart of Creekers’ own celebrations.
