Lakewood United Thurs morning 7 to 8 am, Feb 14, 2013

Tomorrow at Burs Restaurant on Steilacoom Boulevard at Lakewood United, Rob Donaldson from the American Legion (Commander of Post 264, Rainier, WA) will be there to talk about Homeless Veterans.  We all want to help, but don't always know what's best to do.  Check out Lakewood United's Facebook page for schedule updates. Free to attend, but if you order coffee or breakfast you pay for yourself.

This Saturday, Feb 16th, there will be a Spaghetti feed at our American Legion Post 2 to raise money for a young lady traveling to Australia as a junior ambassador. The kids in this program have to raise their own money so have some fun, come on down and skip cooking. She will also be presenting some of her handmade quilts, from the Quilts of Valor program. We are off of 112th, West of Pacific (near 512), not far from PLU.  You can't miss our name on the building. (11204 S. Park Ave, Tacoma 98448) It starts at 6 pm and costs $8 at the door.  Our post has a Facebook page and a website, so check us out.

Quilts of Valor will be having their 10th anniversary this year so there is a national drive to complete 100 quilts before November 2013.  (

Pat our Service Officer will be here another week (next Wednesday, Feb 20th), then I will be on my own as the new Service Officer of Post 2. I am a volunteer, accredited, trained service officer which means I don't get paid to do all that work, but I love to help others so it is very fulfilling work.

The following Saturday, Feb 23rd, is another Spaghetti feed at Post 2 to raise money for a veteran and his family.  They lost their home to a fire and their young child was badly burned.  At 6 pm, $8 at the door, so come on down and fill up your belly while feeling good about doing it.  They not only lost their home, but clothes, books, photos, games, furniture, toys, etc.  Come give them a hand and avoid cooking and dirty dishes for one night.
