It will be an American Legion “Night of Champions” at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, at Post 24.

The Legion will be sponsoring a dinner for the three McPherson state title teams — the 1954 champions, the 1975 champions and this year’s championship team that won the state title recently in Leavenworth.

Don Olson is serving as the contact outlet for the 1954 team, while Vance Carlson will be the contact for the 1975 team.

All past members of American Legion baseball are invited to attend. In addition to dinner, dessert will be provided by the Legion Auxiliary.

All three state championship trophies will be on display. An area is scheduled to be set up for those who would like to bring memorabilia.
