To all Tampa Bay Rare Fruit Club members:
Please note: American Legion Post 111 has two parking lots, a small lot for its bar and a larger lot adjacent to Flora St for the event hall. Our entrance is accessible only from the larger lot.
The Legion’s parking lot is not directly accessible from Florida Ave, but it can be seen to the right of the main event hall. You can access parking by either turning onto Flora St from Florida Ave or by turning onto Dearborn Ave from Sligh Ave.
COVID-19: The policy of Legion Post 111 is that mask usage is up to individual discretion. Please do not attend if you are sick.
