Message From The Commander





Spring is a time of renewal.  Not just for the grass and trees, but for membership (Wow was that a stretch).   As the year is building up steam and events will be taking place throughout the spring and summer please try to attend or be a serving part of at least one or two things.  Great ideas can only become reality when there is participation.  As the sun starts to shine and things begin to dry out, let’s all shake off the winter blues and get out and about.  The physical health of our membership is very important and we should encourage each other to be more active physically.  We have acres and acres of land to walk around and enjoy God’s creation.  An active lifestyle has proven to be beneficial and contributes to a longer and healthy life.

  Election of post officers will be upon us before we know it.  Nominations will be in April so please start considering who you want to nominate for an office in the post, or consider serving as an officer and make your desires known to other members.  Serving is an honor!  At the April meeting I will report back on the Spring Conference I will be attending in a couple of weeks.  Until then, serve with pride and God bless America and the American Legion.

                                      Message From Chaplin Joe Logan;






an amazing and jaw dropping gala event with the Dining In.  Col. Boyd has a fresh new look and a lot of us are faithfully carrying our coins.  There are only 10 left for sale so see SV Patrick Woodall or myself to purchase one.
Veterans Day is quickly approaching and we have the honor of the Cass High School JROTC and Band presenting the ceremony with our guest speaker being District 7 Commander Chauncey Fowler.  PleacCse stay after the event for a free hamburger and hotdog lunch.  Thanksgiving Day the Post will be hosting a dinner for anyone who wishes to attend.  There will be a traditional menu that is sure to be delicious.
I am so proud of the fact that our membership continues to grow and currently we are leading the district in new members for the year.  That is proof positive that when everyone pitches in, the workload is easier to manage.  Remember, "50 under 50" is the Post 42 Legion family goal for the year and we are making great progress towards that goal.  Thank you for all that you do for the family.  Happy Veterans Day and Thanksgiving everyone"
