12th Anniversary Golf Tournament
The Dennis J. Becker American Legion Post 205 will hold its twelfth anniversary golf tournament on Friday, September 29, 2017 at Rose Hill Golf Club. This fund-raising event is so critical in meeting many of our short and long-range goals that we have dedicated an entire web page to it. Click here to go the page.
Quarterly Social Get Together
The quarterly social get-together that was scheduled for Saturday, August 19 at 4 PM at Oyster Factory Park has been cancelled because of prior commitments for the park. The get-together, featuring the long-delayed Frogmore Stew challenge between Mike Miranda and Bob Sterling, will still happen when we can coordinate a venue. This challenge was made and accepted at least eight years ago and will finally coming to fruition.
Frogmore Stew (often called Lowcountry Boil by uninitiated Northerners) is a mixture of shrimp, corn on the cob, potatoes, and sausage steamed together in a special, proprietary* mixture of liquids and spices.
*Proprietary means that Mike has a secret mixture and Bob has a secret mixture, thus the challenge.
When it occurs, bring your own hot dogs, hamburgers, etc. if you must. Grills are available. Also, bring your own libations - beer, soft drinks, etc. The Town of Bluffton charges a nominal fee of about $90 to reserve the park, so you will be asked to voluntarily contribute a moderately amount at the event. Just come and have a good time.
If you have any ideas about future venues or activities, let Mike Miranda know via email.
