Once again, American Legion Post 613 brought Christmas joy to local children. For the 2017 toy drive, Legionnaires, American Legion Auxiliary, Sons of the American Legion, and social club members all donated.

Santa’s Legion elves, Dan Bucy, Barry Petrak and Andy Meletic, went shopping and came home with over $1,500 in toys, games and other items for our local kids. The St. Francis Ladies of Charity will see that the gifts are wrapped and distributed in time for Christmas.
“Filling a positive role and modeling American values is what makes the American Legion important to our Finleyville-Union Township family,” said Legion Officer Dan Bucy. “We belong because we care!”
Father Robert Boyle, who is easing his way into retirement, has watched over this Christmas activity for as long as anyone can remember. The American Legion wishes Father Boyle the best as he continues with his retirement plans.
