SPRINGFIELD, NJ - Earlier this month, American Legion Post 228 held their annual holiday party.
The festivities took place at the Springfield/Hillside Elks Lodge 2004. Members of post 228 were treated to a meal catered by Enzzo's in nearby Millburn. The holiday party is a chance for the members of post 228 to get together each year and catch up, especially if they have not seen each other in a while.
For Post 228 member Dave Penna, the holiday party is always a great event each year.
"It was very important as membership chairman for American legion Post 228 in Springfield," Penna said. "It was my honor to be able to work with the Elks Club of Springfield/Hillside to put together a very nice holiday party for our members."
Penna continued, "We were a little disappointed that more members didn't show up, but through the holidays and being busy with other things, we did have a good turnout. Food was delicious, the comradery was good and we look forward to a prosperous new year and hopefully more members."
