Lanesboro holds “Sing-In” to raise money for American Legion building

The first ever "Great Lanesboro Sing-In" took place Saturday at the Community Center to help raise money for the towns American Legion Post.

Legion Post #40 in Lanesboro was built in 1873 and is on the historic register.

The building is in need of tuck pointing or mortar joint repair, which is set to cost nearly $60,000.

Saturday’s festivities are part of several ideas to help raise money to help repair the legion post.

The sing-in or "beer choir" sung songs from the oldies to war time songs.

"We get a lot of towns people together to have food and drink and be merry and sing. We have some very talented people that are going to lead us in singing some of our favorite songs, to get together and I don’t sing particularly well, but I think in a crowd, it won’t sound too bad," said American Legion Post #40 Commander, Jim Haugen.

The Legion Post is planning a golf tournament on July 31st, along with selling Legion centennial coins and calendars to help fund the repair of their beloved building.
