Some people say that Samuel L. Derby Post 556 American Legion is one of the best-kept secrets in Frewsburg, NY. That statement seems to sum up how we feel the community sees us at Post 556. But, we would like to reassure you there is no secret.
Stop in for a visit. We would love to see you. You can always come in as a guest. We only ask that you sign our guest book. Enjoy our famous Friday fish fry. And on the second weekend of every month we do a delicious prime rib on both Friday and Saturday. There is no way you have not heard about our Thursday wing night. We offer $0.60 wings with many flavors to choose from. We also offer other snack menu items on Thursdays. Tuesday you can enjoy our burger night and Taco Tuesday.
There is something special about Wednesday nights as well. All you can eat spaghetti. And for Legion members, we offer a Queen of Hearts drawing. Now you don’t have to be a member of our Post to take part in this. But you do have to be a member of a Legion Post. A new addition to the kitchen is our lunch specials. Beginning Wednesday and running through Friday, starting at 11:00 am, we will be offering daily lunch specials. And if you get a big enough order we will consider delivering. We also run daily dinner specials Tuesday through Friday.
Our dining room is a large, beautiful room that will meet all of your event needs. It is open for rental to members and non-members alike. Just call and talk to Harvey to reserve the room today! We do weddings, graduation parties, retirement parties, birthdays, or anything else for which you need a large indoor space. We also offer a large outdoor pavilion for the warmer months. This is also available to members and nonmembers. Call today and see how we can take care of you. We would be happy to host your next event.
We have many of our own events planned for the year, too. Coming up March 24th at 7 p.m. is our annual meat party. We will be raffling off hams, ribs, steaks, shrimp, and cash prizes. The Sons of the American Legion will be there with a minimum of five firearms to raffle off. And the Auxiliary will be doing their famous basket raffle. It is not too early to be thinking about what to do for Mother’s Day. We are in the process of planning our first Mother’s Day Brunch. More to come on that, so stay tuned. Last summer we had our First Annual River Run. And this summer we will be hosting our 2nd Annual River Run. Last year was a huge success and we hope to have just as big, if not a bigger turn out this year. Look us up on Facebook to stay up to date on bands and other happenings. We also have a jukebox for those nights when you want to play DJ!
As you can see, there is always something going on at the Frewsburg Legion. If you are looking to become a member, stop in and ask for an application. There are three options. To be a Post member you need to have served in the armed forces during one of our recognized conflicts. Dues are $40/year. To be a Sons member, your father or grandfather, on either your mother or father’s side of the family, must have served in the armed forces. And the Auxiliary offers membership to any spouse or daughter of veterans. When you come and visit, you might be surprised at all the familiar faces.
So, don’t be afraid to stop down and sign the guest book. We welcome you to enter our family friendly environment. You will be glad you did.
