American Legion Post 28 in Oak Orchard has a Veterans Relief Fund that helps veterans who are struggling to pay their bills. Last year, Post 28 Commander Jim Gallagher says the Post spent more than $12,000 from the fund, nearly depleting it. Now, the Post is working to replenish the fund so it can help more struggling veterans.
Post 28 will be hosting a pair of fundraiser concerts on April 7 and April 14. The Funsters will be playing on April 7. On the 14th, it'll be The Eddie Sherman Band featuring Peggy Raley. Tickets are $10 each, but larger donations will be accepted. Tickets can be purchased by calling Post 28 at (302) 945-1673.
