Post Notes – November 25, 2020

The Good News and the Bad News:

First, the Bad:  There will be NO December meeting.  Again, the Covid strikes! 

Now, the Good:  The Veterans Day Program turned out to be a success. Even though everyone had to wear masks and social distance, enthusiasm was high.  The weather was beautiful!  A The brass ensemble made the program an experience.  special thanks to all who braved the chilly AM to put up flags, the ones who help set up the equipment and those who helped take down and fold flags.  If you see anyone from the Fairlawn Cemetery Preservation Society, thank them for their support of the Legion and the wonderful finger treats and coffee they had the Veterans Day program.

With the help of Stan’s grandson, the Post made a video entitled “Being a Veteran.”  The video was made available the Stillwater High School to be viewed by the students on Veterans Day.  You can see the video on youtube.  Go to:
