Instead! what was once, a dingy coal bin is now a spotless moderri; kitchen, with gas range, built-in cupboards, linoleum- topped work tables, .white sink and plenty of storage cupboards for dishes, There , is even an alcove for coats in tho k'tchen. . The new basement contains an ojl furnace and toilet. Oh the first floor,, besides the kitchen, is an entrance hajl arid a large assembly, room, with a small storage closet at' the front. This assembly loom will be available for various- groups who may wish to rent Fisher Post No. 14 is one of the first Legion posts in the 4 state, and soon after World War I they obtained the use of the building, which Was then ihe city hall, under a 99- year grant from the town. Post officers .point proudly to the fact that the entire cost of iho remodeling Was raised by the post itself, Without debt or outside help.
