This week’s article will be brief due to sick call (LOL). Thanks to everyone for showing up last Thursday at our second meeting of the month. Special welcome to US Army Veteran 13-F Artillery Forward Observer Jimmy Himes who joined Post 142 last meeting. Also The 2020 Post Membership cards are in. Our yearly dues are $33.00. Be sure and see Jack Cross and get your new card!
Our current Flag Schedule looks like this: July 2-US Army Air Corps Birthday and July 4th America’s Birthday. July we put out flags Main Street and Highway 99 and Highway 20 and will pick them up July 8. July 11th will be the last day to get your raffle ticket as we will be picking them them to go to State Convention in Shawnee next week. For only $10 you could win $2,019.00 [4 chances to do this] plus smaller amounts. And Post 142 gets half of the ticket money!
We also still have 100th anniversary American Legion “Challenge’ Coins for $10. They are one of a kind and a collectable item. I got mine, bought a few to present to a few special veteran friends as well.
Regular Legion meetings are usually the first and third Thursday of the month but in July it will be the 11th . We will be meeting with the Sons of American Legion at 5:00 pm, dinner (if the Chef is up to it) at 6:00 pm and regular meeting at 7:00 pm. . Koffee Klatch meetings in June are still scheduled for biscuits and gravy and always a cup of Joe (coffee to the civilians). Just watch the weather, it is the only factor that my change that. I think the Chef is on duty as we are into the summer. 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”.
Have a great 4th of July everyone!
