American Legion Post 54 of Wiscasset will hold a free open house and a barbecue for a $5 donation this Saturday, Sept. 15 at the hall, 523 Bath Road, Cmdr. Bill Cossette Jr. said.
It will also be a chance to see up close the wooden silhouette Post 54 member Dennis Hill of Edgecomb made depicting a soldier on bent knee honoring a fallen fellow soldier, Cossette said. He encourages all veterans and the public to attend the event. It runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Cossette said the annual open house is part of the post’s effort to attract more members, including younger veterans.
