The Post is planning a trip to Murphy, NC to have an afternoon of fun, gambling, and fellowship. It is open to all post members. The trip will be Thursday July 25th – we will leave the post promptly at 9AM and depart from Murphy around 4:30 pm. This is not a legion sponsored event, but an event put together by Milton Dickson. We plan on having two vans that will hold 15 people each. The cost of the trip will be approximately $20 per person to cover gas, and insurance. No smoking on the buses, but we will make stops on the road. Each participant will be given $20 in slot machine credits to play on the machines. It will be based on first come, first served.
Contact Milton Dickson 678-429-9359 for reservations.
