The 4th Annual Central Arkansas American Legion Golf Tournament was again a success!!!!!!

We raised more money this year for our Children & Youth and Veterans programs at our annual Golf Tournament on April 30th 2018.  We send a big Thank You to all of our Players, Sponsors, Volunteers, and Supporters.  A Special Thanks to Janice Toll, who without her leadership and hard work every year on the Gold Committee, would definitely be a less successful event for The Post.

Thank you to Rolling Hills Country Club for letting us have our Tournament there.
