Raffle supports veterans park in St. Regis Falls

ST. REGIS FALLS — An American Legion fundraiser to build a veterans memorial park culminates Saturday, April 12, when $10,000 in prize money is given away.

Cody Chester, vice commander of Post 322, said tickets are still available for the drawing, which is set for 6:30 p.m. at the St. Regis Falls Sportsmen’s Club on Duane Street.

First prize is $8,000, second prize is $1,000, and 10 third-place winners will each receive $100.

Tickets are $50 each and include four drink vouchers and a pot-luck dinner served at 5:30 p.m. A DJ will entertain from 5 to 8 p.m., and the band Backdraft will play from 8 p.m. to midnight.

Commemorative bricks are also being sold for $40 each and will be placed around the park’s walkway and monument, which is a replica of a World War II Howitzer.

Chester said the monument was ordered from Alabama and that the organization is looking for a local transportation company to volunteer haul the 16-by-6-foot piece north for placement in the park next to the American Legion on North Main Street.

To purchase raffle tickets, buy a commemorative brick or to volunteer to haul the monument, call Chester at 856-2001.
