Leon Burson Post 395 American Legion, Plano, hosted a fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the post on Saturday, Nov. 17. The event highlighted many area home-based businesses that all contributed a portion of their sales to the fundraiser. Along with providing the hall for the event, the post donated the proceeds of its turkey and ham raffles. This is just one of the many ways the American Legion supports veterans, children and the community. Pictured, from left, are post Commander Bob Whitmer, Auxiliary President Melody Herreid, Robin Johns, post Senior Vice Commander Art McGava, Jennifer Lyle and Lorna Anderson.
