EAST PROVIDENCE — The Riverside Post 10 American Legion has designed a four-foot sign to help advertise its weekly raffle which benefits East Providence children’s charities. And is seeking a volunteer to shape its new plywood “Monsta Lobsta” mascot sign.
The raffle, which takes place every Sunday afternoon beginning at 2 o’clock, has become a tradition and has been organized by Karen Peterson for the past five years. Last year alone the community helped the Legion raise $3,000 for local programs.
The Legion supports the E.P. Special Olympics, E.P. Townies and the Legion College Scholarship Fund. Besides large lobsters, the Legion raffles a 32” flat screen TV and other special food and prizes. In addition, a tasty lunch is offered.
If you are handy with a jig saw and are willing to help the Legion with a “Monsta Lobsta” sign, please call the Legion at 401-433-9859.
