Commander Bill Townsend said, “We use the proceeds from these raffles to support local Veterans and Youth of Lamar County. In the past, we have given away four $500 scholarships and assisted local Veterans in need with grants for over $1,600 to help them through hard times. We’ve awarded over $1,000 to local Scouts that have received their Eagle Scout rank and $1,000 to help support local Boys and Girls Scouts. This year we are sending a local High School student to Boys State in Austin to learn and participate in how government works!”
Contact any member of the Paris American Legion for tickets. Please help us help the Veterans and Youth of Lamar County!
