Oh my, no more pumpkin pie, no more pecan pie. I was thankful for four days of family, football, and food. I hope you enjoyed the break as well. And now we continue the festive season with the Christmas Parade coming up and the Holly Days at the Mosaic park downtown. It’s good to have so many things going on. Soon the Hut will host the annual Christmas Dinner that the Auxiliary always knocks out of the park. Before I go on I want to say, “GO BUCKS!” You made us proud from the players to the supporters, Cheerleaders, and coaches, well done!
So, Mr. Blue has created something that is unique and a bit of a marvel. Situated on a two-seater this replica of a WWI tank was the brainstorm of his son Lewis and Mom. Lewis noted that not much is made about the WWI era, times move on. At the Hut we proudly display the pictures of those who served in the Great War as well as the community of Hominy back in the day. I think it is amazing that this young man has the “pick up” on this time in our history when nations were being remolded and threats came to our shores. Many claimed it to be the war to end all wars, but we have experienced the sad alternative. Lewis, get Dad to play “Sgt. York”. You will love it! And thank you Lewis for remembering our veterans.
Don’t forget our regular meetings continue the first and third Thursdays of the month at 7:00 PM. Monday morning Koffee Klatch meetings for December are still scheduled for biscuits and gravy and always a cup of Joe (coffee to the civilians).
Keep your eye on the weather in case things have to be postponed. That will be most likely if the storms bring strong winds and lightning. If you are a veteran come on by. If you have a good story it may end up in print. Also keep up with us at website “americanlegion142.org”.
