On March 10th, American Legion Arick L Lore Post 274 held their Spring Bull and Oyster Roast. The membership arose early and started working on food preparation, oysters and beef roasting. It was all hands on deck as everyone had a job to do and everyone was busy preparing, fixing and setting up. By the time the doors opened, all was ready for the overflowing crowd waiting to enter the hall.
Commander Nate Stevens had the Ladies Auxiliary Chaplin give a blessing for the food. Everyone was ready for the oysters and the pit beef, cooked by the County Commander, Jay Bolles. And he does an excellent job and there are never any complaints!
The crowd was busy eating and visiting with family and friends, some who only come to the two Bull Roasts, Spring and Fall.
Once most attendees had eaten, Las Vegas activities began with the wheels and Blackjack and all the other games of chance, including raffles.
Kudos to all the volunteers who worked in the kitchen, at the food tables, out back in the steam room, opening fresh oysters , slicing the beef, selling the raffle tickets, bartending, and working the gaming tables. It takes a lot of volunteers to put on the feast as it is a major fundraiser for the post home. Following the food and gaming, there was Karaoke in the lounge to finish off the evening.
