Dozens of American Legion members from Sutton marched their way through downtown North Adams on Sunday participating in the 100 Miles For Hope Walk.
Post 125 Commander Mitchel Keil hopes to reinvigorate the American Legion in step with its traditions and rich history in the community.
The ceremony is held throughout the nation around Feb. 3. This is the first time it has been held in Western Massachusetts, said Kevin Hamel, assistant state chaplain with the American Legion.
This is the 66th year Frank R. Stiles American Legion Post 125 will be hosting its annual free Christmas dinner. The meal will consist of turkey soup, ham, potatoes, vegetables, a dinner roll, and a dessert.
