Lest We Forget

Legionnaires, servicemembers remember Pearl Harbor

Mission: To provideService to our Veterans, their familiesand the Community

This means ACTION…

We still have about 14 others who need to be initiated into the Post! I am hopeful that next year we can include the Christmas Dinner as a REFLECTIONand APPRECIATIONevent. The reason for the Season is THANKFULNESS:

for ALLwho have come before us… (Past)

for those who are still hanging on(Present)

for those who are “Still Serving”(Future)

The current Executive Board members stand on the BACKS of GIANTS who made it possible for us to do what we do! Let us make them PROUD! Let us BE the CHANGE

that others just talk about.

To get something you never had…you must do something you never did!


Respectfully yours,

Stephanie Watkins/Adjutant 678 525-1400 c
