Post-WWII Thanksgiving tradition continues
Newark American Legion Post hosts Smoker tonight
NEWARK — As members of the community gather for Newark American Legion Post #459’s annual Smoker and Turkey Raffle Wednesday night, they’ll be continuing a tradition that began more than 60 years ago.
According to Pat Schuerman, commander of the post’s Sons of the American Legion, the event was designed to get men out of the house as their wives cooked the Thanksgiving meal. He said men could come down to the post to gather and smoke and socialize.
