        HUMOR

Here is a list of witty comments

  • Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
  • Women are like cars: we all want a Ferrari, sometimes want a pickup truck, and end up with a station wagon ~ Tim Allen
  • There are no good girls gone wrong - just bad girls found out. ~ Mae West
  • A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous. ~ Coco Chanel
  • When women go wrong, men go right after them. ~ Mae West
  • To find out a girl's faults, praise her to her girlfriends. ~ Benjamin Franklin
  • It's the good girls who keep diaries; the bad girls never have the time. ~ Tallulah Bankhead
  • Big girls need big diamonds. ~ Elizabeth Taylor
  • Girls have an unfair advantage over men: if they can't get what they want by being smart, they can get it by being dumb. ~ Yul Brynner
  • Good girls go to heaven and bad girls go everywhere. ~ Helen Gurley Brown
  • Women want to be treated as equals, not sequels ~ Kathy Lette
  • There are two theories to arguing with a woman. Neither one works. ~ Will Rogers
  • Women have a passion for mathematics. They divide their age in half, double the price of their clothes, and always add at least five years to the age of their best friend. ~ Marcel Achard

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. ~ Albert Einstein

  • Marrying a man is like buying something you've been admiring for a long time in a shop window. You may love it when you get it home, but it doesn't always go with everything in the house. ~ Jean Kerr
  • The more I see of men, the more I admire dogs. ~ Jeanne-Marie Roland
  • If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman. ~ Margaret Thatcher
  • Men are like a fine wine. They start out like grapes, and it's our job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into something you'd like to have dinner with ~ Anonymous

For every action there is an equal and opposite government program. ~ Bob Wells

                                                                                                                                

 Commanders Message

Greetings American Legion Family;

  The Centennial Celebration was a great success at the post.  Thank you all who helped and especially Pam, who worked very hard, put on a lot of miles and got a lots of items donated for raffle.  Also I would like to thank everyone who attended the event.  You are the people who make this a great post.

May 12 is Mother’s Day and we will be serving a dinner from 11 AM – 2 PM.  Mothers eat free and all others is $8.00 so bring your wives, girlfriends or both and have a good time with good food and friendship.  Following the Mother’s Day meal will be Queen of Hearts.  The jackpot is over $2,000 now and growing. 

May 27 is Memorial Day and we will have a pot luck starting at 1 PM.  The post will provide fried chicken and hope to see a lot of side dishes brought in to celebrate those who gave their lives for our freedom.  All gave some, some gave all.

I welcome all new members and transfers.  We are glad to see you join us and look forward to seeing you at the post and at our functions.  You are welcome to join in any function of our post.  We are currently looking for kitchen help and for new members of our Honor Guard.  See me for more information on how you can help.

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

Paul  Williams,  Commander

                          CHAPLAIN’S  CORNER                                                          

        May is upon us with the flowers the April showers brought us.  Spring is in full bloom with Summer just around the corner. As we enter the month, we honor those who died with Holocaust Remembrance Day on the 1st ;Armed Forces Day on the 18th; and Memorial Day on the twenty-seventh; and best not forget our Mothers on the 12th.  We also start the Post’s new year’s officers terms.

     O God, we pray that You might guide our work in this American Legion Post 87 . Grant our officers the wisdom to seek your guidance in all that they undertake, and the courage to follow in that direction you should have us go. In seeking to serve God and country, may their efforts benefit our fellow veterans and all the people in our community. We pray that all those that have fallen in the great wars, have served and still serve to preserve our great nation be remembered on Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day. May Your blessing protect and honor them. We ask this in your holy name, Amen.

 

Richard Moore, Chaplain

            We have the 2019-2020 officers elected and are looking forward to a busy year. We will be setting a memorial run in honor of our founding secretary, Sandi Klistein, next spring and hope to provide escorts for returning service men and women as we have done in the past.

            As of this month, we are starting a membership drive for riders from the Post, Sons, and Auxiliary, If you ride, we need you and welcome you to our rolls.  We meet on the first Sunday of the month at 1500 (3 P.M.) and if you are interested, please attend and join the fun.
