But after more 50 years in downtown Napa, the meeting hall of American Legion Post 113 is showing signs of wear — and a group of allies is hoping to raise more than half a million dollars to renew the building.

    A local architect and general contractor are laying out plans to overhaul the Legion hall at 1240 Pearl St. at an estimated cost of $520,000, according to Kellie Fuller, a Napa radio host and singer who is coordinating the fundraising effort in hopes of boosting its rental revenue and creating a hall more attractive to younger veterans in the future.
