U.S. Postage PAID Pensacola, FL Permit No. 385 TheVictor’s Voice FOR GOD AND COUNTRY MAY 2011 Post 240 website: www.americanlegion240.org Commander’s Corner At the General Membership Meeting on April 12, I opened nominations for Post Officers for 2011 – 2012 again. Commander: NONE, 1st Vice: NONE, 2nd Vice: NONE, 3rd Vice: Bill Eastman, Chaplain: NONE, Finance Officer: NONE, Sgt-at-Arms: Richard Rayborn, Historian: NONE, House Committee: Al Rogers, Richard Rayborn, Phil Gist, Shawn Jufcak. Nominations will be held the day of elections on May 10, 2011. People running for office are like Post Volunteers, whenever we do either, we are over worked and burned out. Please volunteer to help the Post. I want to thank Mike Holdener for his $300.00 donation to pay for burgers and dogs for the Cleanup crew we had on April 16. Speaking of that, a special thanks to the 12 people from the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts (and their parents) for their help in cleaning/clearing/repairing the Horse Shoe Pits and Volleyball Court and Pavilion area. Another thanks to the 14 Post and Auxiliary members who helped. We didn’t get all the things done I wanted to, but you can’t overwork volunteers. The front of the Post looks really good now. The New Post signs are up and look really great. Stop by the Post and check them out. To date we have raised about $7500.00 towards the Replacement/repair of the Fire Alarm System. We have received one Bid to fix it for about $20,000. So you see, we need more fund raisers. Please support the Ladies of Unit 240. Please come and join us for our Memorial Day Ceremony at 1230 on 30 May. We must remember those who paid the ultimate price for America’s freedom.

On May 14th is the Save a Baby poker run at Bobbi J's in Pensacola, also on the 14th Southern Cruisers Dice Run for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital at Knuckleheads.

May 27th-30th Memorial Day Weekend Post 340 has camping and rides all week-end long and May 30th is Post 240’s Open House at 12:30.  Since our ALR ride has been cancelled we can support other charity rides in our area, but don't forget to plan ahead for our next Poker Run on September 3rd.

Ellis, Director LADIES AUXILIARY PRESIDENT Mary Taffaro 251-978-0420 CHAPLAIN Mary Fahrforth 261-7040 Happy Mother's Day To all of our wonderful Mom’s!! Auxiliary President – Elections-May 10th - We need volunteers for the upcoming year Officers. Make sure to have your membership card so that you will be able to vote. Poppy Day-May 27 & 28 – Debbie Cianci will be at Wal-Mart on Mobile Hwy for Poppy Day starting at 9AM. Come out and support our veterans with a donation and support your Auxiliary by being there. Our delegate for Girls State is Marissa Frangione. Marissa will be representing our Unit in Tallahassee from July 8th – July 16th. We all wish her great success as one of our future leaders. I want to welcome three new members; Jennifer Hattayer, Tina Chadwick and Anna Posada. We are looking forward meeting and working with you in the Auxiliary. At the April meeting the 50/50 was won by Beck Krahn who donated it back to the Auxiliary and the ‘Incentive Drawing’ name was Suzie Cooper for $80 who was not present; therefore, the next ‘Incentive Drawing’ will be for $90. I want to thank our membership chairman, DJ Jones, for her fantastic job in helping the Auxiliary reach 113% membership this year. For God and Country Mary Taffaro 3rd Vice Commander We welcome spring with open arms and the turn out for our April Fish Fry reflects just that. The plastic wrap around the cook shack is being removed for air flow while, preparations are being made for a deep cleaning that will be done during the Post cleanup on April 16th. There will be quite a few activities at the Post during the month of April and May so, we look forward to seeing you there and welcome your support. As always, we look forward to seeing you the first Sunday in May, so brings some friends with you and join us for some good food, family time and friendship. Serving starts at 2:00 pm until gone.
