Commander’s Corner
If anyone knows how/where the Post received the two M-1 rifles that have been in the
corner of the office for years, please let me know. I would like to thank Comrade Dick
Shiver for his generous $100.00 donation to the Post for veteran’s assistance. Thank
you Sir. We still need a 2nd Vice Commander to handle the inside activities of the Post.
We had nominations at the January membership meeting and there were none. So with
it late in the year I will appoint someone who would like to fill this position. I am hoping
to do a Friday night dance at least once a month. If you are interested in this position,
please let me know. As I mentioned last month I would like to get our Post sign
repaired. I’m happy to announce that Ken and Countess Guiles have challenged me
and the Post to raise $5000.00 towards repairing the Post sign. If we can raise
$5000.00, they will match the same amount of money to repairing the sign. Thank you
two so much. The ladies of Unit 240 donated $1000.00 towards the Sign repair and
$2000.00 to our Fire Alarm repairs. Thank you ladies. I’m working on a Poker Run to
repair the sign. It will be held on Saturday April 30, 2011. I will probably be the
Chairman of that committee, so if you want to help please let me know. As a reminder of
American Legion policy, our membership year runs from 01Jul to 30Jun. If you wait to
January 1st to pay your dues, your next year’s card may not reflect your years of
continued membership. That is the way National does membership and we can’t
change that. So please pay your dues. Please support the Ladies of Unit 240 .

3rd Vice Commander
February is around the corner, which means, it’s time again to fire up
the fish fryers and get back to enjoying some good fried fish,
hushpuppies and all the rest of the fine fix-ins that make up Post 240’s fish fry.
Fish fry’s resume on the first Sunday of each month starting with February so,
come on out and eat some good food and support your fish fry staff and Post 240.
Serving starts at 2:00 pm until the fish is gone.

Bingo Chairman –
Turned over $1000.00
to the Post
from Bingo.
Turned over
$500.00 in
Bingo Pull Tabs. We
need more Callers and
helpers so we won’t
overload the
volunteers. Please
volunteer if you can.
Jimmy Lee Martin
Auxiliary President –
First of all I would like to welcome three new members to the
Auxiliary; Rhonda Kagarise, Betty Ann Nelson & Donna
Ranna. We are currently at 80% of our goal; please renew
your membership as soon as possible. February 26th is our Mardi Gras
Ball and tickets are on sale now in the lounge. The tickets are $15 for a
Cajun Flare Dinner, show and dance. There will be door prizes, 50/50 and of
course the ‘Basket of Cheer’ raffle. Mark your calendars and buy your tickets
now to enjoy a wonderful evening; cocktail attire is requested. We are also
going to have a ‘Bunny Hop’ on April 9th in the hall with Paul Amos as DJ for
only $5 per person at the door. The dress will be 50’s & 60’s; so break out
those ‘poodle skirts’ ladies and all those petticoats for a fun filled evening of
dance. For God and Country Mary Taffaro
