Feb 25 Killed in action Memorial Fundraiser - Pancake Breakfast for the KIA Memorial at Ridgewood High School. Please join us and attend the Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion Post #974 to honor three Ridgewood High School alumni who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country and our freedom. The memorial is located in the courtyard at Ridgewood High School. It featured the image of the American flag inside a piece of transparent glass. The glass portion shattered, and the memorial stands unfinished. With your help, we can make the memorial whole again for the families and for all those who have courageously served our country. Please join us for breakfast on Sunday, February 25th, 9 am –1 pm at the American Legion Hall in Franklin Park. Your support is invaluable. Thank you. [flyer]
