Oh my Good­ness!!! It is Oc­to­ber al­ready! I love this time of year. So many changes are in the air and so many ac­com­plish­ments to look back on. As I look back on the Le­gion I can’t help but feel pride as I see where we started out a few years ago. Our mem­ber­ship is grow­ing by leaps and bounds and our vets feel the love that we all have for them .The chil­dren whose love and ad­mi­ra­tion for the vets that have fought has never wa­vered are more aware of what and why Re­mem­brance Day is.

Our le­gion has be­come some­thing more akin to a mu­seum of the vets than just a club house. It makes my heart swell with pride.

The park pro­ject which was noth­ing more than a dream in our es­teemed Pres­i­dent’s mind has come full cir­cle. What started out as a dream has be­come some­thing beau­ti­ful, some­thing that the en­tire Le­gion and com­mu­nity with its sup­port and as­sis­tance can and should be very proud of.

The monthly supper night events with its top notch en­ter­tain­ment have be­come some­thing you all look for­ward to on our beau­ti­ful new stage. As do all of us at the Le­gion. It has be­come the evening to catch up with old friends with the com­ings and go­ings of their farms, chil­dren and lives as well as a great op­por­tu­nity to meet new friends and com­mu­nity mem­bers. I look back with the ut­most pride in see­ing what all of the vol­un­teers and staff have ac­com­plished.

We have lost many Vets over the years; some we knew bet­ter than oth­ers but each and ev­ery friend we have lost is re­mem­bered by us all.

From hum­ble begin­nings to a won­der­ful place to sit and visit and en­joy a bev­er­age with other folks that feel the same as all of us at the Le­gion do, that our vets Need to be Re­mem­bered al­ways and not just on Re­mem­brance Day, that alone is an ac­com­plish­ment that we should all be proud of.

Enough of the melan­choly ram­blings of a wanna be jour­nal­ist it is time for the news!
