Pequot Lakes American Legion Post No. 49 is sponsoring a blood drive for the American Red Cross from noon to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 6. Both drives will take place at the American Legion meeting hall.
While many communities canceled or changed their annual Memorial Day ceremonies due to COVID-19 concerns, the Pine River American Legion chose to go forward with its three ceremonies at the Pine River Dam, Pine Ridge Cemetery and Swanburg Cemetery, though services were more brief than usual.
We were lucky enough last fall to find in Cold Spring the same color granite that we’ve been looking for for a number of years that matches the pavers we’ve been using on the Pequot Lakes All Veterans Memorial in Trailside Park.
