FROM THE COMMANDER
UUUGH!!! WOW!!! In all my years that God has blessed me with in this life, I can recall other terrible winters, but this winter started out very mild and then turned too long with terrible conditions. Cold polar vortex. Ice storms. Lots of snow (blizzards) with horrible driving conditions that led to so many highway pileups. But now it’s over, so welcome to spring.
From the Farmer’s Almanac: April is the first month of spring! Here at Post 154, we hope that your sky is bright and clean, and your grass is growing green. The month of April is named after the Greek Goddess of Love, and the month when trees and flowers wake up and begin to bloom.
It is also a month of new beginnings at our Post, with the election of new officers. Our Legion business meetings are conducted on the first Wednesday of the month, with the Governing Board meeting on the third Wednesday of the month. These meetings commence at 7:00 p.m. sharp and end generally at 8:00 p.m. The Legion will consider changes in our present by-laws, as suggested by our four by-laws committee members at our April meeting. A vote on these changes will be conducted during the May meeting.
In a sad note, I want to acknowledge the passing of a Legion member and friend, John Cuperus. John was a veteran of World War II who frequented our Post almost every Thursday during dinner. While breaking bread with us, he told great stories and jokes. John was a great example of The Greatest Generation, and he will be missed. For Sallie: “Good friends are like stars. You don’t always see them, but you know they are always there.” (Author Unknown)
