Backus Legion to open Wednesday
BACKUS — The Backus American Legion will be open for indoor service beginning Wednesday, June 10.
The clubroom will open at noon seven days a week with a limit of 50% capacity seating indoors imposed by the state, in addition to seating available in the outdoor patio and smoking area.
Customers will be asked to sign in and check their temperatures. State social distancing requirements will be met by the Legion with spaced seating.
Bingo and meat raffles will not be conducted at this time due to state crowd restrictions, but pull tabs and electronic gaming will be available. Monthly Sunday dances followed by 4-H Club benefit dinners will also remain suspended.
Legion Auxiliary breakfasts, served the second Sunday of each month March through October, will resume July 12.
“We thank our customers for their patience during our closing and welcome them back to our facility,” said Legion Commander Bill Taylor in a statement accompanying the announcement.
