Legion appreciative

On behalf of the A and J Iaia Post, American Legion, appreciation is extended to the area Boy Scouts for helping to place flags on the veterans’ graves for Memorial Day and to Father Frank Scornaienchi and the Mount Carmel choir for the Memorial Day field Mass.

The support of the Calvary cemetery staff and the Iaia Post committee helped to make everything possible.

This is the 69th year that the Iaia Post has sponsored the field Mass; it was the first American Legion in the United States to sponsor the field Mass. The Mass was well attended.
