American Legion Spaghetti Dinner is Sunday

The Alfred Erickson American Legion Post #186 will be hosting its biannual spaghetti dinner on Sunday, beginning at noon. Commander Rod Guilbault says the meal is the primary revenue generator for the group and it would not be able to continue operations without it. Last spring’s dinner had to be canceled due to COVID, but the post found a way to have one in September.

Meetings have been sparse since last March, but Guilbault is hopeful that a sense of normalcy can return in the months ahead. He goes through some of the ways the post makes a difference in the community.

Our post is active in providing support for veterans, active military and their families, Memorial Day services, veteran funerals, and our Color Guard takes part in parades and community events.

There will also be a 50/50 raffle with proceeds going to help the baseball program. American Legion has a robust league across the state, and it can be particularly important in the Copper Country because spring weather doesn’t always allow for a complete MHSAA slate. A summer league doesn’t suffer from the same constraints.

The baseball team and Phi Kappa Tau fraternity will be helping out during the benefit.
