Wow can you believe the weather weíve been having. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
On November 11th Veteran's Day, we had a very nice program. Speakers were the Mayor of South St. Paul, Jim Francis and Congressman Jason Lewis. We had a WWII Veteran Claude Williams. His father was the Last Man Standing of his group, from WWI. Carlo LaMonna brought several historical photos from WWII. One of them was of the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima.
I had a concerned lady call me about seeing a copy of City Pages at our Post. Please do not bring this paper into our Post, and if you see one, destroy it. We serve our Veterans and our community and we donít want this type of literature around when minor children are present.
Kids Christmas party is all planned and Iím sure all the kids and grand kids will enjoy all the fun we have in store for them that day. Remember itís December 17th from 1-4pm.
November steak and shrimp was fantastic. Thank you to all who came to help. Donít forget, December will be the last steak and shrimp until after Easter because of the fish fryís starting up on January 5th.
