Last Sat. night at American Legion

Last Sat. night at American Legion was a little stressful.  Larry Inman called a couple hours before Am. Legion & was sick with a  cold.  Gordon called all over to find a singer.  Mike Riley came until 8:15 when he had to go to his job.  The last hour Danny Contreras sang a few songs.  He had performed at Harrah’s for a couple hours & then a wedding in Grandview for an hour & then he & Linda came & he helped us by singing a few songs.  Maggie came a little later a sang a few songs.  Written by Doris Riley.
