The commander elect, Bryan Lucas, has resigned due to health problems and I have inherited the position until April.
We wish Bryan best of luck and a speedy recovery. Just a quick recap of the Veteran Day events. The turnout of area veterans at MVHS was pretty good, but I know there are a lot more veterans out there. The flag folding ceremony was conducted by Fred Milligan the Post’s Americanism Officer, assisted by Dane Curato and SSGT Corey Heinzen.
A wonderful job was done by the MVHS band and RAAPA. Ron, we will miss you next year. On November 12, a small group of members of the Legion family from Post 24 met at the Western Maine Veteran’s Home in West Paris for their Veteran Day service for the tenants. A good time was had by all.
The Ladies Auxillary is busy planning their annual Christmas Party on December 10 at the Post. This is for members and guest. The cover charge is $8 per person or $15 a couple. The price includes a meal of prime rib and dance to the music of Noel and Don. Please pay and signup at the Post so they can have a head count prior to the event.
On December 17, we sponsor a night of laughs. Dinner, laugh and dance is back with the dinner comprised of Mexican food. Tickets are now on sale at the Post for $20 per person. Get your tickets early. The annual letter will soon be out and in your mailbox. Membership is currently at 76 percent, so if you have not paid your 2012 dues, please do so. The next meeting is December 4 at 6 p.m.
