American Legion Post CR10 located in Escazú is holding its third annual Memorial Day picnic on Monday, May 28, at Villa Amira, which is located in Santa Ana on the old road from Escazú. The picnic will be from 1 to 5 p.m.
This old fashion home style picnic will feature half pound burgers and extra long hot dogs right off the charcoal grill. There will be potato salad and baked beans, both homemade, along with all the traditional toppings and condiments. Beer and soft drinks will be available at a cash bar.
Music will be provided by Jairo Gonzales, who was so popular last year that the post said it brought him back.
The cost is 6,000 colons per person, about $12, and tickets are limited, the organization said. Information on obtaining tickets is available on the post Web sitewww.amlegioncr10.com or by firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 2232-1680, 8737-3160, 2249-0446.
The post will also be holding a ceremony to honor veterans who have passed away since last Memorial Day. This ceremony is held at the Cementerio Campo de Esperanza in San Antonio de Escazú and begins at 11 a.m.
Come observe the real meaning of Memorial Day and then join us at our picnic, said post officers.
