Anita and I had a treat today. We attended Miss Morgan Benson's first birthday party. Morgan tore apart many sheets of paper with great enthusiasm that only a baby can muster. She sure enjoyed making small pieces out of big ones. And I do believe she gathered some good noisy ones. She was particularly fond of Tickle Me Elmo. Really kept her attention.
Morgan's personalized birthday cake was a cupcake. She sure enjoyed squishing it all up and slowly tasting many bits and pieces. The ice cream cake made her day too. Morgan had a spoon and knew exactly what to do with it. Someone would put some on her spoon and she made it disappear with only the grace a baby could do. And if it wasn't replenished quick enough, she let everyone know she wanted more.
The rains came and the snow is settling fast. The brooks are showing water above the ice and snow. The ponds are showing signs of spring too. Brother says no ice fishing for a couple of days now.
By the time you read this, Post 68 will have done First Aid Training provided by Pace Ambulance Service. We feel that with all the customers we have along with guests, we need to be prepared. Just another service we are providing. And if there is further interest, I'm sure we could arrange further training sessions. Just let me know.
On the 17th of March we of Post 68 will be celebrating the Legion birthday. At this time, we will honor our greatest generation. The Veterans of WWII will be special guests of the evening. Please let me know if there is anyone out there that needs this honor. We will provide transportation if needed and make sure each one is taken care of. Dept. Adjutant Lloyd Woods will be our guest speaker.
The Birthday Dinner will start at 6 p.m. and the program at 7. Dinner will have mashed potatoes, veggies, ham and other goodies. The birthday cake is being done by the one and only Sally Smith. Let's get all our members out for the evening and honor our greatest generation.
