FLORENCE — The aroma of simmering beans with ham is wafting in the air on south Court Street this morning as members of the American Legion Lauderdale Post 11 put the finishing touches to a fundraiser to benefit local veterans.

Bean Day begins at 11 a.m. at the post, located at 318 S. Court Street. It will continue until 2 p.m.

Tickets are $9 per person. In addition to beans with ham, the menu includes coleslaw, cornbread, onion, dessert, tea or bottled water.

Proceeds benefit the local veterans and widows fund.
