     NEWSLETTER MARCH 2019

     March Commanders Message

Greetings American Legion Family.  The district meeting in January was well attended and was educational and informative.  Our District Commander was absent due to attending American Legion College.  The First Vice Commander did a great job taking his place.

One subject that I am not happy to discuss is our food service.  My health is not as good as it used to be and I am unable to keep up with the demands the kitchen puts on me.   If we do not get some help in the kitchen we may be forced to discontinue food service.  We have a really nice kitchen and dining area and it would be a shame to see it go to waste.  We make a profit in the food service and bring members into the post that may not otherwise come in, so please step up and help out.

In March we are having a Saint Patrick Day Dinner on Sunday the 17th from 4 – 6 PM.  Traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage will be served for $8.00.  Also in March is our Centennial event celebrating the one hundred year anniversary of the American Legion.  Ceremonies start at 12 Noon so plan on being here early to help where you can.

As always I want to thank all of you who work around the Post to keep it running.  Without our volunteers the Post would not exist.

It is almost time for elections again so start thinking about who you want as officers for the next year.    Your choice of officers is vital to the future of our Post.

I look forward to seeing all of you at our meetings and around the Post. 

Paul  Williams, Commander

MARCH CHAPLAIN’S CORNER

            Did someone say “MARCH !”   

We are now approaching in on one of Christendom’s holy season with the approach of Palm Sunday, Ash Wednesday, and Good Friday in the last week of the month. Let us honor this thought through the month and apply to all our veterans, their families, and those that still remain in harms way. 

      Dear Lord; Today, I reconsider the intensions I set for the entire year and take time to reflect on what is important to me. In do so, my heart fills with gratitude for all that I am, all that I have, and all that I want to express in my life.

         I end my day with prayers of gratitude reflecting on the moments that held special meaning.  Pray for those who have passed and remain, knowing that we all are risen by you grace.  AMEN

Richard Moore, Chaplain Post 87
