I just have to start off with just a bit of interesting trivia. It seems that Al Lake wanted me to say just a wee bit about his mother-in-law’s biscuits. We all know that Al likes to stir it up even more than me on Sat-urday. Al wanted me to say that when Rowena threw the biscuits in the compactor at the Transfer Station that it broke down. Now we all know that could not be the case as we all have seen many of Rowena’s bis-cuits. And I can’t even imagine such a thing happening. I am sure Al might have added something to coun-teract the baking powder when Rowena wasn’t watching.
Next Sunday is a Basket Bingo at Post 68. This will benefit the West Paris Library. And the Little Castle needs some help to finish paying for the fine addition. So come on out and support the project. Doors open at 12 p.m. and the games start at 2. There will be plenty of goodies to eat and all that good stuff. I do understand that there is some really fine baskets filled with all sort of nice things. So come help out and enjoy the after-noon and maybe win a game.
This past Saturday we attended an 50th anniversary party for Freda and Joe Gaudreau. A wicked good time was had by all attending. And it was a complete surprise. We all heard Freda give her brother T what for. T has broad shoulders. It sure was good to see so many good friends that worked with Freda and Joe over the years. And big hugs for a very nice couple and many more years to come.
On May 6, Post and Unit 68 will have its installation of officers. There will be dinner at 6 and installation at 7. All the Legion family is invited to attend.
On May 7 is a special Bingo to support the Military Vehicle Show at the Veterans’ Home in South Paris. We want to be able to pull this show off without any funds coming from the Western Maine Advisory group. So fill the hall and make all the helpers work hard. Doors open at 4 and Bingo starts at 6. All you regulars better show up a bit early if you want your usual seats. We would love to have to write a big check at the end of Bingo for the project. Come early and stay late.
