From Our Commander:
Well another month is gone and
it was a very busy one at Post 40.
Our Friday Fish Fry dinner counts
are close to reaching 200 served dinners each week and our breakfast is
serving more than 100 breakfasts on
average each Sunday. Thanks to our
wonderful volunteers and all their hard work to
serve so many and a special thanks to you for supporting our meals at Post 40.

Saturday February 14th we will be serving a nice
Valentines Dinner starting at 5:00 PM. We are
serving stuffed chicken breasts with mashed potatoes and succotash. Make sure you bring your
sweetie in for a great meal and stay and enjoy the
Karaoke contest.
We will begin a Karaoke contest on Saturday
February 7th. Make sure you come out and compete for your share of the Cash prizes, full details
and rules available at Post 40. If you don’t want to
compete that’s fine come out and support the
contestants. In our last contest we had some real
quality performers.
In addition to Thursday afternoons, we are going to also play “Show Me The Money” on the 2 nd
& 4th Wednesday Evening beginning at 5:30 PM.
Our February Legionnaire of the Month is Fernando Medina. Fernando has been running our
Fish Fry and helping on Sunday mornings. He
really does a great job. Congratulations, Fernando, you deserve the recognition and I really
appreciate getting a break from the Fish Fry.
Our new membership year has started, if you

From Auxiliary Unit 40
Hello Ladies, January was a very busy month. A
lot of our Northern friends have returned just in
time, since winter has arrived in the North. It sure
is great to see everyone again.
There is a district meeting on Saturday February
28th at Post 318 in Port St. Lucie. Try to make the
meeting and represent Unit 40.
President Edie Porter has reported that hopefully our updated By-Laws and Constitution will be
available at our next meeting on Monday February
Brenda Willis has reported that there are still
some members who have not renewed and we are
running out of time quickly. Ladies, if you haven’t
already make sure you renew ASAP.
The next Quarter Auction is scheduled for Monday March 2nd at 6:00 PM. Remember these Auctions benefit our AEF (Auxiliary emergency Fund)
and we need your support, not to mention the
Auctions are a lot of fun.
Just a reminder, we still have a monthly Flea
Market at Post 40 on the first Saturday of each
month. Make sure to clean out that “junk room”
and turn the stuff into CA$H, especially since the
weather is so nice right now and a space with 8’
table is only $10.00 donation to Post 40.
The Post 40 Annual Valentines Dinner will be
served on Saturday February 14th at 5:00 PM.
Adele is serving Stuffed Chicken Breasts with
mashed potatoes and succotash. Dinner will be
followed by Karaoke, so plan on making it a full
The Auxiliary Dinner will be served Tuesday
February 10th by Denise & Dave. I was unable to
get the menu prior to the deadline for the newsletter, but I am sure it will be delicious and you can
contact Post 40 for more information.
The Legionnaires and Auxiliary members at Post
40 are hosting a “Day at the Casino” on March 21st
beginning at 10:00 AM and lasting until all the fun
is gone. We are in dire need of Volunteers to work

Stop by Post 40 @810 S. US 1
To pay for and reserve your spaces
either the concession stand or the casino games.
All volunteers will be trained on how to deal the

this event will support our youth programs.

I would like to personally Thank Post 40 and all
the members who made my father’s (Frank
Korowitz) memorial service such a wonderful and
fitting remembrance. It will forever hold a special
place in my heart. Although it was an event I had
hoped to never have to attend, it is an unfortunate
fact of life.
He was definitely shown and given the respect
he earned protecting our country and supporting
our Post. I have been overwhelmed with gratitude, which for one of the few times in my life has
left me speechless. I am not sure how to express
the gratitude I am feeling. All I can think of is to
say “Thank You” to Post 40 and all those who volunteered to make it such a special day.
Thank You, and God Bless,
Loretta Ahrens
