It is an annual tradition the second grade students get to enjoy.

NORTHFIELD—The Harvey D. Johnson American Legion Post 295 has been experiencing a dramatic rebirth over the last six months. The work is thanks to the post crashers; volunteers who provide the muscle and the enthusiasm to get the job, just about any job accomplished.
The main room was in desperate need of paint, a new ceiling, lights, a new floor in the entryway, the bar area and the kitchen. The hardwood floor was in good shape once it was cleaned. The back yard was badly overgrown. The lion’s share of those jobs are now checked off the to-do list.
