(Le Mars) — The Wasmer Post #241 American Legion of Le Mars will hold its annual shoe party scheduled for this Saturday evening. Dan Plueger serves as the Commander for the local legion and says Saturday’s event will follow the monthly steak fry.
Plueger says the need for children to have new shoes keeps growing each year. He says the identified children with a need for new shoes will be given a pair of tennis shoes.
The legion commander says they rely on the assistance of school teachers and other officials in identifying those children that are under privileged.
Plueger says the bingo games will begin at 8:00 p.m. following the monthly steak fry which is from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., and probably will continue until around 10:00 p.m. Plueger explains what items will be featured during the evening’s silent auction.

The Legion Shoe Party will be held at the American Legion Hall located on Plymouth St S.W.
