American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor to host family event

The American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor is thrilled to open its doors to the community for the upcoming event “Family, Family, Family!” on Sunday, April 28 from 12-4 p.m. It promises delightful specials and lively competitions that will serve as a platform to promote community engagement and showcase the invaluable contributions of the American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor.

The event will also serve as a membership drive for veterans and families of veterans, encouraging them to join the Post, the Sons of the American Legion (SAL), or the Auxiliary. They warmly invite all who have served and their loved ones to become part of their community, where bonds are forged and memories are made.

A mouthwatering combination of meatballs and spaghetti, priced at $10, and a savory meatloaf plate with fixings, priced at $12, will be available.

Join them for a sandcastle-building competition on the small beach in front of the patio, or test your skills in a thrilling cornhole tournament held in the hall. Prizes await the champions of each contest, with accolades bestowed upon the first-, second- and third-place winners.

“At American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor, we believe in honoring our veterans and their families while fostering a sense of community and belonging,” said Commander Evin Planto. “Our event theme of ‘Family, Family, Family!’ mirrors the sentiments suggested by national, and we are proud to provide a platform to showcase the vital work of the American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor.”

As part of their commitment to community engagement, they aim to educate the public about the impactful initiatives undertaken by the American Legion Post 291 Newport Harbor. The day is also an opportunity to bring awareness to the organization’s Be the One mission – to reduce the rate of veteran suicide and destigmatize the need to ask for help.

Join the American Legion for a day filled with laughter, camaraderie and meaningful connections, whether you’re a veteran, family member, or community member eager to learn more.
