I The Kimball Legion Club is on the south end of Kimball, across Highway 15 from the baseball park Memorial Field, Owner: We are a non-profit run by the Board of Directors, with Jim Herda as Commander. This interview was with Jim, and he stated with great sentiment that this club would not exist without the endless volunteering of officers and members. Opened: This club was chartered in August 1920 and club members met at veterans' homes during the '20s and '30s. The current building was opened in August 1949, and we remodel, add on, and improve our building as we can. Our Employees: With the bar and gambling, we have roughly 15 paid employees. We have dedicated officers and members who volunteer for events and to cover areas at any time when needed. What do we do? We are a Veterans Fraternity and our primary function is to support our veterans and veteran organizations around the state, and sometimes outside the state of Minnesota. We provide Color Guard for school functions, Rifle Squad and Color Guard for veteran funerals. Our gaming pull tabs and progressive Bingo (Thursdays at 6:30 and Sundays at 1:30) support non-profit organizations, our local schools, the local food shelf, donations for those in hardship, Kimball Days, and other donations too numerous to mention. What sets us apart: We are a non-profit and donate $15-20,000 a year for veteran and community needs. Our pork chop dinners that are held every- other Saturday night are one of the best you can find, and we can cater for groups up to 150 in our event room. Our customers: Our loyal regulars, members, Legion comrades from around the state and country. Also, we have our pork chop dinner supporters who come from surrounding areas, as do our Bingo players. Our hours are Thursdays 4-close, Fridays through Sundays 12-close.
