Saluting Jim Hall: a community treasure

In Granby, the American Legion Pancake Breakfast is synonymous with the opening day of fishing season—a maple-syrup-covered tradition anglers and breakfast lovers anticipate all year. On the second Saturday of April, you’ll find Jim Hall at the grill flipping the hundreds of pancakes served at the main fundraiser for the Shannon-Shattuck Post 182.

A Backwards Glance

In June 2003, Jim Hall (pictured above) was given much-deserved recognition for his service to American Legion Post 182 and for organizing Granby’s Memorial Day parade for 33 years. This year we thank Jim for his 51st Memorial Day parade and celebration in a year that desperately needs a drum-thumping, fife-playing outing on the Green.
