Recently, the American Legion Post 108 hosted a party to celebrate the 89th birthday of the American Legion. Past commander Jim Hunter welcomed those attending with a brief history lesson regarding the Walker-Donaldson Post, deemed the Jim E. Hunter building in 2007. It, too will celebrate its 89th birthday this November.

Local talent Denice Kinzie, accompanied by Holly Tichenor, sang old favorites including a salute to the various Armed Services. Members of the Avery Fire Department were also on hand to say a few words honoring the Legion.

In typical birthday fashion, cake and punch were served.
