MAHOPAC, N.Y. - Mahopac’s Sons of American Legion Squadron 1080 held its annual Pig Roast fundraiser at the Legion Hall on Buckshollow Road on Saturday and more than 200 hungry supporters showed up to take part in the feast. Besides the whole roasted pig, the menu included steamed clams, clams on the half-shell, fried turkey, pulled pork, grilled chicken breasts, chicken wings, sausage and peppers, hamburgers and hot dogs, salads and more.
The money raised helps the Sons of American Legion support veterans and the community throughout the year with things such as scholarships for high school seniors, donations to Relay for Life and American Legion Boys State, support for local Scouting and an annual Thanksgiving dinner for vets at the Vincent Leibell Putnam County Veterans Home.
Besides all the food, there were assorted raffles, put together by the Sons of American Legion Auxiliary, that featured prizes donated by area businesses, including restaurant gift certificates and sports memorabilia. Much of the food for the event was donated by Scotts Corner Market in Pound Ridge and Mahopac Inn.
