On July 10th, the Half Moon Bay American Legion held their fourth annual blues festival.  The American Legion Post 474, which has been around since 1934, holds fundraisers throughout the year to help local charities and is a non-profit organization. 

WBRC Vets were treated to a number of blues acts and lunch in the chilly coastal air of the pacific.  VIP seating, an abundance of assistance, and all the hot dogs and hamburgers they could handle were just a small part of the outing.  One vet stated “It’s like we are all stars” in regards to the hospitality of the Legion Post 474.  The WBRC would like to thank all of the members of the Half Moon Bay American Legion for the great tunes and for hosting such a positive event.
