For more than 30 years, artists and vendors have set up booths in the Veterans Memorial Building’s parking lot at the annual American Legion Summer Fair, which this year is to happen from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15.
This year, the free event is to include more than 50 artisans and sellers, according to Fair Director Dave Siegele. He said the post’s proceeds from the fair stay in town and support a variety of causes with local ties —such as the legion’s July 4th fireworks, Troop Support Services and other means of helping North Coast active-duty service members, Operation Holiday Package (which sends gifts and goodies to service members during the winter holiday season) and local charities including the Rotary and Lions clubs, Friends of the Cambria Library, highway clean-up programs and other non-profits.
American Legion Post No. 432 also sponsors a $7- per-person pancake breakfast both days from 8 to 11 a.m. at the legion’s club (behind and below the main floor of the vets hall). Chef Siegele says the menu includes made-from-scratch flapjacks, sausage, eggs, coffee and juice. For details, call 296-9200. —Kathe Tanner
