American Legion Post 37, 37 Star St., has re-started its monthly suppers, hosting its first public dinner in two years Feb. 16.

The supper marked the beginning of Post 37’s effort to increase the post's presence in the Midcoast. Suppers will continue to be held for the remainder of the year, on the third Saturday of each month. Some months will see a switch in the meal being served. This will first be seen in March, when Post 37’s Women’s Auxiliary will host a supper to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. The baked bean supper will return in April and May.

Post 37 is often used by local organizations for charity and other events, as well as for family-oriented activities. There post membership is considering hosting events where a guest speaker will talk about aspects of Maine's vast military history and that of the local area. The post looks forward to welcoming new members, as well as the public.

All veterans and their families are invited to drop in during any of the events or the monthly meetings. Post monthly meetings are held on the first Thursday at 7 p.m., except during the winter, when the monthly meeting is held on the first Sunday, at 2 p.m.
