Join Us June 11 for Food and Music!


As part of the Friends of Legion State Park's (FOL) effort to increase the park usage and increase
membership in the organization, FOL will host a summer picnic at the Lodge at Legion on Tuesday, June 11 at 6:00. Folks are invited to come out and enjoy some great barbeque and music while learning more about the activities of Friends of Legion and this historic state park within the city limits of Louisville. Take this opportunity to visit Legion and see the changes and improvements made recently and to learn about some exciting projects.

Scheduled to perform are the Wells Brothers from Noxapater and Tracy McCully.

The Fish Were Bitin!!

We had a great time at Saturday's (May 4 ) Kids N Kats Fishing Rodeo. After all that rain, the skies cleared on Saturday morning and even though it was unusually cold for May, we still had a big crowd as we registered 75 kids!! ..... And the fishing was great!! Every one caught a fish and some had large stringers and full buckets.

FOL would like to thank all those who helped or contributed to the event!!
