Kirklin American Legion Post 310 Annual Rabbit Supper
The ladies Auxiliary of the America legion in Kirklin and some of the legionnaires put together the annual Rabbit Supper for the Veterans, Family, and Friends.
There were between 275-300 guests at the supper and were served rabbit, ham, sides, and deserts.
