American Legion: Post 303 members feeling strong heading in to season

It’s November, and we’re shifting into high gear at Post 303. Welcome back to all our seasonal visitors. We missed you. Monthly calendars are available at the Post, also check out the “big-board” for new or changed information.

November 5 is early bird dinner. If you have already paid your 2010 dues (or will pay them that night) you are entitled to a free dinner from 5 to 7 p.m.

November 11 is Veterans’ Day. Be at the city park at 11 a.m. for our service. The park is surrounded by 100 of our American Legion Veterans burial flags — an area called “The aisle of Flags.” It is a beautiful sight. After the park, head out to the American Legion Post 303 for lunch. The men are cooking up burgers and dogs and the Auxiliary will bring sides. The music starts at 2 p.m. Call Kay, 597-5124, if you will be bringing something.

The Auxiliary is also helping the V.F.W. and Post 388 launch orange balloons into the air, signifying our support for veterans plagued with, and those lost to Agent Orange. They will take flight at 1 p.m. from the V.F.W Post on K-nine Drive. This is the second year Darlene Brooks has spearheaded this program.

On November 26, you will be very unhappy if you miss Adam and Adam’s (along with elves) fantastic turkey dinner. Complete dinner, down to the pumpkin pie for $5 donation. We will be serving from 4 to 7 p.m.

Debbie has her kitchen in full swing, starting with Sunday breakfast, 8 a.m. to noon. And the Bloody Mary’s and screwdrivers are on special from Julie.

We still play bingo on Wednesdays and Sundays at 7 p.m., and our moolah is played on Saturdays at 2:30 p.m.
