Reservations are open for the Backus American Legion’s Classic New Year’s Eve, a traditional holiday function featuring a prime rib or breaded shrimp dinner, dance music by the Frankie Lamb Band, champagne and party favors, for $25 a person, including gratuities.

Reservations will be taken up to the day of the event on a space available basis. Call or sign up at the Legion at 218-947-3156 or call the Dawsons at 218-947-3416.

Those making reservations are asked to pay at the door but must call as soon as possible to cancel a reservation as seating is limited and the post must pay for reserved meals.

The evening will begin at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 31, with hospitality time and dinner at 7 p.m. and guaranteed seating for entire event. Potluck snacks and desserts will be served at 11 p.m.
