On behalf of the Detroit Lakes American Legion Post 15, I would like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped make the Pig Roast and Luau Fundraiser June 29 a resounding success!
An outstanding 250 people that came out to participate in the fundraiser. We had over 30 generous local area business donate to help make this event possible. The success of the fundraiser can be directly attributed to those that showed their support either by attending the event, donating time or donating goods and services to help us install a new roof.
I would like to specifically thank Jerry Buhr for donating his expertise and equipment for the pig roast as well as spending the entire day making sure that everyone had a delicious meal; Jerry “The Karoke King” Doyea for donating his karaoke equipment and his DJ skills for the entire night; Elvis, who got the crowd singing along to favorite old songs; auxiliary member Cheryl Blauert for her time and effort, as well as all the others that committed time and effort.
I would like to remind anyone who would like to join in helping us get a new roof that we are accepting donations, anything is appreciated. You can also mail donations to: Detroit Lakes American Legion Post 15, 810 West Lake Drive No. 1, Detroit Lakes, MN 56501.
