     NEWSLETTER JANUARY 2019

 

GREETINGS AMERICAN LEGION FAMILY.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL. I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON.  The Post is really looking beautiful.  On behalf of the membership, I would like to thank everyone involved in beautifying the Post. The floor looks awesome.  The main players were Phil and Van, but it took a lot of teamwork from others to get the job done.  There are many who work behind the scenes and don’t get the recognition they deserve.  If you see someone working around the Post, take a moment to stop and say “Thank You’’

January 26th is the District Meeting at our Post.  If at all possible please attend.  There will be no breakfast buffet that day because of the meeting.  Those in attendance will be served lunch. 

The Queen of Hearts was won for a total of $5,654.00  The next session will start on January 6, at 3:00PM. The beginning jackpot will be $500.00  participation has been wonderful.

Speaking of participation, it was very disappointing to Post members who would rather sit at the bar than take a few minutes to attend the Veterans Day Ceremony. IN THE FUTURE, THE BAR WILL BE CLOSED DURING ANY CEREMONY PERFORMED AT THE POST.

When you see me around the Post and you have something constructive to say I will be glad to listen.  When you are discussing Post business at the bar or elsewhere remember that your suggestions and opinions are greatly appreciated at our meetings, but aren’t worth a damn at the bar.

See you at the meeting on January 12th, at 1:00PM

 

Paul  Williams, Commander

  GREETING  POST 87  MEMBERS:

  As we come to the first of the year, it is time to remember all the blessings we have received last year. The many gifts of love, friendship, and our veteran comrades.     Let us not forget those comrades we have lost last year, and especially those still on active duty protecting our nation and our way of life; may they know that we are grateful for them, their sacrifices and shared devotion.

    From this American Legion post chaplain,  may you all have a Happy New Year.

    Matthew; 2

    After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and on entering the * house (Stable), found the child with Mary his mother. They prostrated themselves and did him homage.

After they had left, the angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph with command: “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt. Herod is searching for the child to destroy him.” Joseph got up and took the child and his mother and left that night for Egypt.

HAPPY  NEW YEARS

By editor for Richard Moore, Chaplain, who is ill.

Christmas Basket Raffle – The drawing for the Christmas Basket was held during our Christmas Dinner. The winner was Jonnie Teall. Congratulations.

School Supplies - We are also collecting “school supplies” for the elementary grades. That box is also located on a table in the bar. Your donations are greatly appreciated.

Christmas Veteran Family Adoption – The Auxiliary adopted a Veteran family and supplied them will new clothing, groceries and Christmas gifts. There were 6 children ages 3 years to 15 years. They are being taken care of by Grandma while Mom is deployed in Germany. Mom was scheduled to arrive home in time for Christmas. Thank you all for your very generous donations to help with this very deserving family.

New Year’s Eve – We had a great time during New Year’s Eve. If you missed it, you’ll have to wait again for next year.

The Auxiliary Unit asks its members if you know of any of our other members who are ill or in distress to please let us know so that our Chaplain can send an appropriate card.

A very “Happy and Prosperous New Year” from our family to yours.
