Mark your calendars now on Friday, April 1. The Santaquin American Legion Auxiliary Post #84 is having an “April Fool” Spring Fling dinner and bingo fundraiser that evening. Cost is $7.50 per person. The buffet menu will include BBQ pulled pork, cole slaw, rolls, baked beans, chips and a variety of salads and dessert. The bingo games will be free with the dinner.

There will also be a special prize for our “April Fool” crazy hat contest. Door prize tickets will also be for sale. The dinner will be held in the Santaquin Senior Citizen/Veterans Center located at 45 W. 100 South in Santaquin at 6 p.m. Please RSVP to Chris Richins by calling 801-754-l131 by March 25.

The fundraiser this year is for IndependenceFund.org. The fund provides tools, therapies and resources to America’s combat wounded veterans. You can check out their 2015 annual report on line. The fund is best known for its “Track Chairs,” which are all-terrain wheelchairs that allow the veterans to go almost anywhere, including hunting and stream fishing, so they can have a more normal life.

Join us for an evening of food, and fun, and don’t forget your hat!
