A check presentation was made Monday night at American Legion Post 24.

The American Legion baseball team, coming off a state championship season, recently raised $2,460 with its biscuits and gravy fund-raiser at Post 24 as nearly 500 tickets were purchased. Modern Woodmen honored its pledge to the program and donated another id="mce_marker",000.

Funds raised will go toward upgrades for the Legion program.
