If you can donate a Turkey or a Ham to get us through Thanksgiving, please drop it off at the Legion. We have the entire community to serve on Thanksgiving Day and lots of Hams and Turkeys are needed to make it happen. You can also give a Tax Deductible Monetary Donation for the event. Just make your check out to “American Legion Post 79″ and mail it in or drop it off at the Legion. No donation is too small.

On Tuesday the 6th, in our Dining Room at 11:00am, there will be a Health Insurance Broker here to review Medicare Supplement Plans. This is something I do every year. I am inviting the Entire Community to come up to the Post to listen and talk with him about your options. No Pressure, No Cost, the Public is Invited. The Bar is Not Open to the Public for this meeting.

A Memorial Plaque for Jay Bostwick has been mounted by the power pole, just outside our patio. Thanks to Gil Newton for lending a hand.

Thanksgiving Day we will have our Free! “Community Appreciation Dinner”. Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner with all the fixin’s, No-Charge! Our way of saying thanks to our community and the people that support us. Donations to the Post will be gladly accepted. Sorry, but there will be no take-out dinners. Meals on Wheels will be delivering. Our Kitchen will be closed the day after, no Dinner on Friday, the 23rd. We really do need some help with our Thanksgiving Dinner. If you can donate an hour or two of your time anytime during Thanksgiving week it would be greatly appreciated. Our Kitchen services will be limited during Thanksgiving week, due to all the cooking and cleaning that will be going on, All Week. Please bear with us.

If you show your membership card before the bartender asks to see it, you get 25 cents off your first drink! “RED SHIRT FRIDAY”; if you are wearing a red shirt you get 25 cents off your first drink!

For God and Country,
Gary Adams, Commander, American Legion Post 79
