STONE HARBOR – Each year, Stone Harbor’s American Legion Post 331 and its Sons of The American Legion (S.A.L.) Squadron, supported by the Yacht Club of Stone Harbor, hosts a spaghetti dinner fundraiser for a designated veterans’ charity. This year’s charity was Veterans Haven South of Winslow, New Jersey, a veterans transitional housing program operated by the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs for homeless veterans.

After being medically evaluated at a VA Medical Center, eligible veterans must agree to a long-term program focusing on psychological, social, and vocational rehabilitation.

Legion and S.A.L. members with support from cadets from the Middle Township High School Navy National Defense Cadet Corps served 263 meals throughout the evening.

At the end of the dinner, a donation of $5,000 was presented to Brigadier General (BG) Patrick Kennedy, superintendent of Veterans Haven South, by co-hosts Jon Ready, Post 331 Trustee, and Reese Moore, acting S.A.L. commander.
