July 2012

The Memorial Day parade and ceremony were once again a great success. We had well over 100 people at the ceremony and the streets were packed with onlookers. Mike Brennan was our guest speaker and gave a heart wrenching talk on the loss of his son, Josh, in Afghanistan. Thanks to everyone who helped make Memorial Day a success. Election of officers was held on June 1 and I guess you have to put up with me for another year. All the officers wil...Read More

Happy Spring, We have a busy season ahead of us. At our May 4th meeting, we will have Phil Hands who was supposed to speak at our March meeting but had to cancel because of the snowstorm that night.

On May 5, we will have our legion cleanup starting at 9:...Read More

April 2012

Another month has passed and it seems we have an unprecedented spring with the warm weather. We will take as much as we can. Our March meeting was interrupted by snow and our speaker, Phil Hands, had to cancel. We continued with a short meeting. Paul Peters and Jodie Armstrong set up the computer donated by Cress Funeral Home. They report it is more than adequate and will serve us well. Don’t forget we have a website at www.alp534.org.

Well, it’s been a short month since our last “Notes”. Due to the snow on January 19, we couldn’t make the Mid Winter Convention. Greg Simonis made it and reported a very good conference.

Many of you have seen Phil’s political cartoons as well as cartoons of the Packers, Ba...Read More

Guess what? Computer broke and I’m handwriting this so it may be a little short. Several of us had the privilege of meeting the wife and son of one of our legion namesakes, Stephen Foye. I got a phone call they were at the legion, so I went there to meet them. I met Geneveive Hansen Foye, Steven’s wife and son, Stephen Foye. Geneveive lives in Galena, Illinois and Stephen lives in Kent, Washington. We had a very good conversation about Steven an...Read More

Hi, again. I can’t thank everyone enough for all the help and wonderful turnout for our Thanksgiving Day dinner. The donors of turkeys, food and help once again made our 20th Thanksgiving at the legion a success. We served about 155 people, down from about 180 last year, but I have to blame the Packers for playing such a good game. After the first half, we had few takers and I don’t care because we won and many people had a great meal. Karen and...Read More
