Sweet fundraiser: American Legion selling watermelons to support scholarship

The American Legion have been selling Sugar Town Watermelons since Sunday to raise money for their Scholarship Fund.
The Scholarship fund is something the Legion does annually, which this is one of many ways the public could help in creating this fund.
The Scholarship fund raises $2,000 and any extra money raised goes into the maintenance fund. If you would like to, you can do so by buying a watermelon or two at the American Legion Vermilion Post 29 building.
The building is located at 3319 Veterans Memorial Drive in Abbeville next to the Louisiana National Guard Armory.
Watermelons will be sold directly in front of the building and will be available until every watermelon is sold. The Legion and its’ members thank the public for participating in such a great cause.
