Annual Member Fish Fry
Members and sponsors gather annually at the Member Fish Fry at Cross Lake. Held at the American Legion Post 14, Johnny’s Catfish & Seafood serve piping hot catfish, chicken, hush puppies and fries, cooked on site, until members and their families completely get their fill. Boat rides and tailgate games are also available to enjoy the beautiful setting at Shreveport’s historic location for outdoor and water sports recreation.
