BELPRE, Oh. (WTAP) - A local organization gathered tonight for a spaghetti dinner but for a different kind a of reason.

The American Legion at Blennerhassett Post 495 of Belpre held a Community Associates Thank You dinner.

At the dinner an announcement was made that Post 495 will be closing due to financial issues and membership enrollment.

Post 495 has been in Belpre for over 80 years and with this closure a Boy Scout troop will also have to relocate.
