The American Legion Post 296 in Destin held a fish fry and Karaoke fundraiser July 21 to assist Joe Thompson with his medical bills after an accident at home.

Thompson was in the hospital and later rehab for an extended period but is back home now and doing pretty well. The fish fry was enjoyed by many people and many volunteers assisted in serving and the clean up. "Cajun" Ray Bourque, Gary Harris and Billy Harris were the cooks and Dan Woods was in charge of karaoke.

The American Legion is a non-profit organization that provides a great service to our veterans and community.
