Ben Harden, a member of the American Legion through his membership in the Sons of the American Legion, lost his Monroe home to fire in March of this year. This Saturday, there is a benefit at the American Legion, Post 64 in Monroe to help him recover from the loss. It will be in the form of a Chicken BBQ.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., people can stop by the American Legion at 318 Alcovy Street, Monroe, and purchase a plate for $7. There also will be a drawing for three fishing rods as well as one for a home security system, installed with 1 year subscription. The cost for these drawings is $1 a ticket or 6 tickets for $5.
