Meredith Legion Hosting Meat Bingo to raise funds for grave markers

MEREDITH — The American Legion Post 33 in Meredith is hosting a Meat Bingo event on Saturday March 29 at 3 p.m. at the Post at 6 Plymouth Street in Meredith. The event is sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion. All proceeds from this event will directly benefit a unique and worthy charity.
The Meredith Village Cemetery contacted the Legion concerning five graves in the cemetery, three from the Revolution and two from the War of 1812, that do not have granite grave markers that are traditionally placed at veterans graves. It appears that these graves were moved to the Meredith Village Cemetery from other grave yards in the area due to construction. The Legion approached the Veterans Administration Grave Administration Department and were told that these veterans were entitled to the traditional granite grave markers provided by the VA, but the request had to come from a direct family member.

Since the Legion cannot find direct family for these five Meredith veterans the SAL stepped forward and are running this meat bingo event to help fund these traditional granite markers for veterans that gave their sacrifices more than 200 years ago. The Legion will also accept cash donations to help with this important effort.
The public is invited to help in this effort. Come see how Meat Bingo works and have fun. There is no smoking at this event.
