Poac, the Sons of the American Legion, and the American Legion Family sponsor this fantastic event every year.

I know it's fantastic because it's my husband's barbecue that he always wanted to do for kids of all ages with autism. His American Legion Family really came through for him and helped him kick this off the ground six years ago and every year he is so thankful for everyone that comes out to volunteer their time. Nick, my husband, has an 18-year-old autistic son, my stepson. This is something that he's always talked about and is very proud of.

It's a day of activities for kids and parents with inflatables, a train, kids' favorite characters walking around for pictures, and this year Chubby Penguin Parties will be joining the BBQ for the first time. He's very excited about Chubby Penguin Parties joining the BBQ. There is food for the whole family and ice cream. It's a safe place for kids to run around and just have fun.
