The American Legion Auxiliary are to serve a turkey dinner with ALL the trimmings to start the meeting and the price of this lunch to everyone is to be 50c per plate.
Music for the luncheon will be furnished by Leon Hernandez on his violin and Linzel Hernandez, two Mexican boys, whose home is in McAlester, but are now employed by the Moses Café of Caddo. They will play request numbers if possible and from all we have heard they are a fine musical pair.
