What beautiful weather we are having. Not too cold or warm. I’m sure it won’t last long. Anyway, keep working in your yards but be careful. My daughter saw a young snake in my yard, but it wiggled away before she could get a good look. May have been a copperhead but not a black snake we are sure of. Watch where you put your hands as you are gathering up leaves and twigs. Keep your flowers in your yard beautiful and your grass trimmed.
The Shred-It Truck was a big success on 29 April. More community residents came out this year than in the last couple of years, plus I saw more members bring their documents to be shredded. This is a great community event that we host.
On Mothers Day, the Post held a wonderful dinner which was well attended. The food was delicious and well prepared by Cassie and her helpers. We played a couple of instant bingo games and shared a lot of comradeship and fellowship.
The first raffle for either a Life Membership or Legacy Life was pulled. The winner was Jr Vice Life Member Phil Hudson. He will become a bronze Legacy Live Member. Congratulations Phil!

There continues to be a need for volunteers to help with the Color Guard, Liberation, Lonesome Dove and Bingo. It takes every member contributing their time to continue these programs and to receive revenue from bingo to help maintain this facility.
