You have been waiting. You have been asking. The time is here...... finally. This coming Saturday, February 9, beginning at 11 am, you can drop by the Legion Building and indulge yourself in the best platter of fried fish available in this part of Oklahoma. I know, I know. Carnage has its world championship domino tournament going on that day, and you want to compete. We are serving until 2:30 pm, so my best advice is just to lose early and come on back and eat.

Yep. A big platter of deliciously fried catfish with hush puppies, fries, coleslaw, potato salad, dessert, and drinks for $8.00; a visit with old and new friends; and the opportunity to buy a chance on the hand-stitched quilt just might encourage you to skip the tournament. Anyhow, you can play dominoes at the Legion Building after you have finished off your food. Them that's really hungry can go back for seconds

Oh, yeah. We are also offering anyone who feels the urge an opportunity to volunteer to help put on this fundraiser, if you want to. Get to the kitchen around 9:30 to 10 am. There is always something to do in preparation for the crowd's arrival, and we keep buy pretty much all day. Sort of fun, too.

Other Stuff:

Legion Field: Our two baseball diamonds that make up Legion Field have been in increasing disrepair and sorrowfully overgrown the past two years, after the baseball team in their third year of a 5-year use agreement we had signed with them disbanded unexpectedly. About a month ago, we agreed with the ladies Freedom Fastpitch Softball Team took over the sports complex and have worked tirelessly to make the fields playable, the dugouts usable, and the stands comfortable. Today was the first day that the team practiced there. We are looking forward to supporting the team as they practice and then go into their playing season. All of you who are interested in youth sports are encouraged to support our team.

Dancing: The Wichita Sounds Band plays every Friday night in our ballroom, a wonderful variety of traditional country, early rock, a couple of line dance numbers, and ballroom. With music from 7 to 10 pm, the Friday Dance is a great way to enjoy an evening with a bunch of great folds, get a little exercise on the dance floor, and enjoy really good music. Folks wanting to learn line dancing can do that on the fourth Saturday of each month when Rick and Cheryl-Ann offer instruction at 7 pm.
