#151 Bob Saring

(First airdate: February 11, 2020) THE AMERICAN LEGION’S ROLE IN P.T. Our Town host Maryanne McNellis interviews Bob Saring, general manager of the American Legion Post in downtown Port Townsend. The Legion is a veterans' club with a bar, pool table and a lot of games. But it’s much more than that. The Legion also provides a home for a winter homeless shelter which it runs together with several church groups. It awards scholarships and provides an honor guard - complete with a bugler playing taps - when a local vet dies. Our post is one of the oldest in the state and just celebrated its 100th anniversary. Bob talks about recent upgrades to the hall itself, which houses local events ranging from the Kinetic Sculpture Race to R2AK (Race to Alaska). He outlines ambitious plans for the next 100 years.
