We want to give a BIG thank you to Eastern Tire for donating two tire tubes for the trailer that we have now to haul the lobster cookers. S.A.L. also gave three scholarships this year. Two $500.00 and one $250.00 to deserving area students who want to further their education. We would also like to see more members come to the meetings.

FROM THE CHAPLAIN:
"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God” (1 Peter 4:10). We all have a purpose. Psalm 139 says that before we were born all the days ordained for us were written in His book (v.16). We are fearfully and wonderfully made to bring glory to our Creator (v.14). One way we do that is by meeting the needs of others and by the way, this can relate to our American Legion home as well. We always need volunteers brothers and sisters The post can not survive without volunteers...... There is a never ending list of projects and helping others truly does bring glory and honor to Him. What can I do, you ask? A lot! We all have a purpose. See more on the Chaplain’s page of our website!
For God and Country, Chaplain Dave chaplaindavef@outlook.com
