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 9th. 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 evening. 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 Auxiliary Unit 40 Officers President Edie Porter First Vice Connie Schwartz Second Vice Dee Sheppard Secretary Linda Harrington Treasurer Sandy Walbeck Chaplain Gary Moulton Historian Patty Kafka Sergeant At Arms Libby Piersall Asst.

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 various games, so don’t let that stop you from coming out and helping. Our success will be directly linked to our ability to get enough volunteers to support this event. The proceeds from this event will support our youth programs. Please contact Dee or Helen for information. To everyone celebrating a Birthday or Anniversary in February, Congratulations and Unit 40 sends its best wishes. We also pray for all of our Troops to be protected from harm and returned home safely this year. For God and Country, Dee Sheppard 2nd Vice Unit 40 Volunteers, Thank You, We Appreciate Your Help…...

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.
