The Patriotic Con¬ ference at the Bismarck, was very uplifting and good for the soul. Everyone should take time out to experience the play back in time of the forming of this great Nation, and this great organization thats been here for 67 years. That's a long time for an organization to survive, so you know its got to be good. • One person in our Unit has served it for 60 of those years, so just ask her, she'll fill you in on what you don't know about our Unit in Huntley. She is May Chesak. I think everyone knows May, I've only known her a short time, and in that short time she has shown me her willingness to take on any task, large or small, with a smile and a I can do it attitude. We honored May at our Birthday dinner with a life time membership, a 60 year membership award, a small plant and rejuvenating cream, to keep her going for another 60 years. May, we love you. Something must be good about an organization that can keep one as May inter¬ ested enough to hold a 60 year membership, do you know what it is? It must be • because at our Post a lot of organizations gather, the Lions, Snowmobilers etc. It is open to public functions. Everyone says you can always get a good meal at the Huntley Post, that's also be¬ cause we have such a devoted Ways and Means group who do their best to provide us with the good food that brings in the moneys to keep our Post in good repair and help pay the bills. There are a lot of bills, things keep breaking and have to be replaced. We the Auxiliary presented the Legionaires a check for $3000.00 to help with the expenses at the Birthday dinner, but that's what we are supposed to do. It says so in the Preamble, to con¬ tribute to the aims and accomplishments of the American Legion. There are many aims and a lot of accomplishments, just ask May. Are you doing your share? If you use the building for your aims and accomplishments, are you giving your share to lighten the burden, the upkeep? Figure it out, and do more, we need this organization in this area and we need your support.
