Worthington's Legion post struggling to keep going |  Worthington Daily Globe  | Worthington, Minnesota

Worthington's Legion post struggling to keep going Worthington Daily Globe Worthington, Minnesota:
"WORTHINGTON — Post 5 has occupied a role in the Worthington community ever since its organization after World War II and the post name became Calvin-Knuth. The post was active for a number of years. It moved from the church located at Sixth Avenue and 12th Street, and built a structure on the present grounds. Post 5 supported many activities in the present structure, referred to as the Post Home. Sources of income were from the lounge and other fundraising activities like steak fries, pork chop dinners, etc. Gambling activities, such as Bingo and pull tabs, became a source of income for the post.
It would seem that Post 5 would be able to exist with the income sources stated. However, those sources weren’t sufficient to meet all of the obligations. Post 5 began to cut back on its activities. The fundraising activities weren’t always profitable, and if there was income, it became a stop-gap."
