. A lot of things are going onat the post in our canteen. It is the time of year to plan Christmas andNew Year’s. Couple other things going on are: Nov 12
we are having alive remote radio broadcast at the post. I am trying to get and have al-ready gotten different vet organizations to come down that day and put out some info for all the vetsin the area. The only way you will get the info is if you show up. The county service office, vetscourt, WDVA, our honor guard and hopefully the ladies will join in to. That is just some off thegroups that have responded back and said they would come down and put out info and field ques-tions you might have. Well that being said, we are at around 87% on membership and still have acouple to go to get everyone paid up. We hit 100% last year and received a streamer for our postcolors flag let’s see if we can do this again. If you are having problems paying your dues, get hold of me or Wayne Kiley, our quartermaster, and we can help you out. One thing that came out of our meeting at state was that next year the continuous membership will go up $10.00 per membership.So you might want to see if you can get the life membership they offer. Monthly payments on themat affordable rates. We had our annual chicken roast this month and for the first time we ran out ofood. Don’t know if the weather had anything to do with it or not but it was a very big success. Iwould like to thank all the people that gave up part of their day to help with the task at hand that day.We are trying to get the post back to things we can do as a family unit again. If you have any ideasplease fill out a suggestion card the next time you’re at the post and drop it in the box. These arelooked at by the board committee and discussed whether they will be able to be implemented or not.Don’t forget about the scholarship programs that we offer the deadlines are getting close. Call mefor the info and I will get all the info out to you. I would like to apologize for my lack of attendance atthe post. I am pulling double duty again as district commander and post commander and I am put-ting in 6 days a week at work on third shift and schooling two days a week. I will try to make it to thepost but don’t always have the time. Next year they will get a new commander at district so I willhave more time on my hands. If I am elected again you will see more of me. Well, I think I coveredeverything, if I missed anything keep an eye out for the

Chaplain’s Corner 
His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer. One day, while trying to make a living for his family, heheard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog. He dropped his tools and ran to the bog. There, mired to his waist inblack muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself. Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what couldhave been a slow and terrifying death.
The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed noblemanstepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved. 'I want to repay you,' said thenobleman. 'You saved my son's life.' 'No, I can't accept payment for what I did,' the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer. At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel. 'Is that your son?' the noblemanasked. 'Yes,' the farmer replied proudly.'I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like hisfather, he'll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.' And that he did. Farmer Fleming's son attended thevery best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to becomeknown throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.
Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was stricken with pneumonia. What saved hislife this time?Penicillin.
The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name? Sir Winston Churchill.
